We all know the image of the watchmaker: magnifying glass under the eye, bent on his desk to assemble the delicate mechanisms of precious timepieces. Expertise, attention to detail and tradition are the key elements that emerge from this vision. But this job is increasingly confronted not only to technological evolution of watches that become more complex and accurate, but to the economic constraints of profitability and productivity.

Virtual view of the CHRONOGRIP with its Tablet PCRealizing that the machine cannot work without the human being for high precision assemblies, Percipio Robotics has worked for more than one year on the CHRONOGRIP, a compact robot machine dedicated to help the operator. Its goal:  improve the watchmaker tools, to facilitate their work, make it easier and increase accuracy and productivity. Traditional gestures… but robotized!

To achieve this evolution of traditional tools, Percipio Robotics offers a technological leap unprecedented in this sector: to associate man and robot, the intelligence and the movement to keep the technical nature of the gesture while ensuring accuracy and speed. One of the biggest issue is that is not the specialist who has to adapt to the machine, but the contrary. The CHRONOGRIP is then driven using an innovative natural interface with the traditional gesture of the watchmaker, a way to control this high accuracy robot “at your fingertips”.
