Franka Emika Robot is a collaborative robot (cobot) that is able to handle delicate products like the chips during chip testing while maintaining speed and accuracy. Its built-in sensors and vacuum gripper enable it to pick up, examine and place chips much faster than human counterparts. As seen in the video, the Franka Emika Robot takes the chips from a rack, detects the state of the chips through the sensor, and then sorts them into two categories: "functioning" and "not functioning."

The cobot (collaborative robot) currently has a payload capacity of 3 kilograms, weighs 18 kilograms, and has a total reach of 855 metric millimeters. The hand may grab with 70 newtons of force and move 30 millimeters every second. The Franka Emika cobot is connected to the cloud or existing local shop floor networks via the small control unit, which may be put in server racks or anywhere else. Meanwhile, the Robot is completely manufacturer-independent, resulting in low integration costs. The cobot can be used to automate production and testing procedures in the manufacturing of chips, components, and electronic devices of all kinds.

Cobots and lightweight robots like the Franka Emika Robot can handle highly sensitive electronic components and semiconductors because of their incredible sensitivity and precision. The Franka Emika Robot has seven degrees of freedom(DoF) and seven axes of motion, making it as agile as the human hand. It also has a human touch sensibility, a completely smart interactive solution, simple to set up and operate. Contact recognition, interpretation, and reaction are all extremely accurate in the Robot. With its accurate, agile, and weightless soft robot control, it can follow shapes. These features make it safe to use as it stops quickly in the event of a collision.

Chip quality control is an important step in the manufacturing process. Vacuum suction and precise insertion into the test equipment are required for the treatment of the smallest and most fragile chips. The Franka Emika Robot was created with these challenges in mind. The cobot makes it simple to connect to the test tool and regulate extraction using a specific end effector. You may simply achieve a dependable automated chip testing method while also increasing test coverage this way.
