Automotive Industry Cluster of Catalonia

Exoskeletons for the automotive Industry
12th of February

Exoesquelets are presented as a new disruptive technology within the automotive industry.

Next Tuesday 12, February at 9:00 a.m., the 1st Exoesquelets in the Automotive Industry of the CIAC at CFPA (Martorell).

Due to the success and interest received after the first call, we have decided to extend the day in the afternoon!


Certain tasks in the production chain present a series of risks to the health of the worker due to the repetitive and significant manual handling of loads and positions maintained outside the comfortable area, the intervention on these by means of new technologies is marked as a new challenge for the companies.

Exoesquelets are presented as a possible solution to this problem, and for this reason, from the CIAC we have decided to give impetus to this initiative!

The purpose of this seminar is to introduce exoskeletons and their potential within the industry as well as explain the Exoesquelets project applied to productive processes that are being carried out from the Cluster by ICSSL.

During the session you will be able to be inform, ask and even try the exoskeletons of different suppliers!

We will accompany us in this day the general director of industry, Ms. Matilde Villarroya and the director of the Catalan Institute for Occupational Health and Safety, Ms. Elena Juanola, as well as the president of the CIAC, Mr. Josep Maria Vall.

In addition, different suppliers will accompany us during the day, showing us their first-hand technology. Exoskeletons will be available to assistants to see and try them!
