Inside Loop Technology: Take a peek into our workshop

Pour yourself a cup of tea and step inside the Loop Technology Centre…

Many robots come and go from our workshop; they are delivered here, equipped with end effectors, programmed, tested, and shipped to site – ready to automate their assigned processes.

Amongst this constant hustle and bustle, are a team of robots who call the Loop Technology Centre home.

Their job is to help with feasibility studies to verify customer materials and processes.

As bespoke automation comes with a few risks, we have invested significant time and expense to create test and development cells

This allows us to perform trials for customers to de-risk the final solution.

Meet some of the robots who are ready to help

Wall-E, named after a certain inquisitive cleaning robot, sits in our RoboCLEAN demonstrator cell.

Wall-E helps with laser cleaning trials to determine the best settings for different materials and surface coatings.

KUKA Agilus

Named Titch as it’s the smallest of the bunch, this robot roams across the factory floor.

From developing our agile fastening end effector technology for aircraft assembly, to dynamic labelling technology for e-commerce, Titch may be small but this robot is mighty, helping out wherever it can.

Loki and Thor
KR 1000 Titans

Loki and Thor, named after the Norse gods, are in our Advanced Automated Preforming Technology (AdAPT) cell.

They are currently being kitted out so they can perform composite preforming related process trials including ply cutting, layup, stabilisation, inspection, trimming.


Rosie, named after British chemist Rosalind Franklin, is in our large volume machining cell, RoboMACH.

It helps with machining trials to determine the best spindles, settings for different materials and surface finishes.

Helping to accelerate innovation

Recently, Rosie supported project RoboMade for high accuracy machining of hard materials. We worked closely with our consortium partner Far-UK, who acted as the end user.

“Working on the RoboMade project with Loop Technology provided us with a lot of robotics knowledge and has really accelerated our innovation programme.”

Working closely with our customers, right from the start

Alongside our robots, is a dedicated team of engineers to look after each trial. They work closely with our customers right from the start to understand their specific process and needs.

This allows us to identify potential challenges that may arise during process development, reducing the risk to the customer and the overall time to deliver.
