Cell for research on manufacturing and inspection of metal and composite parts
Cell for research on robotic systems for manufacturing and inspection of metal and composite parts. it has three medium size industrial robots and specific tools to perform manufacturing operations, such as finishing of metal parts (grinding, polishing, deburring), manufacturing of composite parts and non-destructive testing by ultrasonics and eddy currents. It is a fenced space for operator safety, with a 3 meter long aluminum table for the mounting of parts and a lower tray to collect liquids used during inspection. It integrates a dust and chip suction system, and electric and pneumatic source to feed the tools. The necessary software for cell programming is available. It integrates a cloud based monitoring and analytics system, and a real time process controller programmable in Matlab, Simulink and Codesys.
