NeWiP

NeWiP – New Ways for information-led Production Project Description: The project is concerned with four areas of application, which are worked on and implemented by the companies Imperial, Woll Maschinenbau, XENON and ZF. In this way, different company and production areas, as well as their interconnectedness can be considered and further solutions developed. The focal…

IProGro2

IProGro2 – Developing innovative Production Technologies for large Components Challenges and Objectives: Companies in the transport sector, such as in aircraft construction, are characterized primarily by low quantitative output of production, as well as by long product lifecycles. Furthermore, a continuous development of production systems does not take place. As a result, a high number of…

Virtual Reality Training

Virtual Reality training as the demand for customised items increases, operators need to be able to handle a diversity of tasks. Learning new assemblies can be difficult and slow down production. Virtual reality setups, based on actual CAD designs of the product, allow to practice the assembly even before the components are available. In addition,…

Cobot assembly station

Cobot assembly station A human and a cobot (or collaborative robot) work together on the assembly of a small compressor. The operator takes care of the precision work, while the cobot handles the heavy and repetitive task. This demonstrator shows the advantages of digital work instructions, tailored to the experience level of the operator. At…

Collaborative Workcell 4.0

Collaborative Workcell 4.0 In our hybrid workstation we demonstrate the added value of human-robot collaboration. Cobots (or collaborative robots) are designed to work together with operators and handle a multitude of tasks. This is the best way to deal with the demand for small series production. At the same time, the work load of operators…
