Flexible and Accurate Automation:  Flexible and Accurate Automation Making ”flexible automation” flexible:  Making ”flexible automation” flexible The industrial robot is a very flexible machine, but Tooling and fixtures are less flexible or very expensive Programming and Simulation of Robots and Tooling are time-consuming On-line sensing and control, as needed for flexibility and accuracy, hampered by control system limitations Algorithms, processes, and components are available, but improvements are highly desirable. Flexible and Accurate industrial systems and practices are missing! Affordable Flexible Tooling Task-oriented work-cell operations Sensor-based feedback control Flexible and Accurate Automation Introduction Expected results:  Expected results Technology Robots with unique absolute accuracy, during free-space high performance motions. Industry-compliant open controller, for new applications and research Force-controlled work-piece processing, programmable with safety for shop-floor operation On-line sensing with instant feedback, for task-specific motion control. Low-cost 3D vision for adaption to partly unknown work pieces Impact Flexible automation affordable Enable use of robots for new industrial applications End-user short-series application solutions, evaluated for high-value products SME foundry tasks Hence: A combination of accuracy & performance & flexibility as needed for productivity and future applications, enabling affordable flexibility and new capabilities, for use of robots in future industrial applications. Aim Assembly Tooling:  Assembly Tooling Industrial issues - Current status Fixtures for Vehicle Assembly are in general Dedicated Tooling Static Fixtures requires periodic calibration Fixtures are seldom re-used for the next generation Production equipment is paid by the number of manufactured products Flexible Fixtures exists, but today flexibility is very expensive! Accuracy in Industrial Robots:  Accuracy in Industrial Robots Absolute accuracy in Industrial Robots today are >1 mm (Volvo Cars) High-Accuracy Robots today can reach absolute accuracy of >0.2 mm (ABB) Accuracy in robots today are not enough for several key applications and is only guaranteed for non-contact scenarios! Industrial issues - Current status Stiffness in Industrial Robots:  Stiffness in Industrial Robots Robots are able to adopt for static forces that is in the direction of gravity and does not change Even small forces on robot Tool-Center-Point results in deflections If deflection occurs, it is not possible to know how! Robots today are not suited for applications such as drilling, grinding or deburring! Industrial issues - Current status Simulation of Robots and Systems:  Simulation of Robots and Systems Robot Programming today is often done in offline-simulation systems One unique robot program is made for each robot task Robot Programming is today still done as “teach-in” in a 3D-environment Instructions are explicit and low level rather than process-oriented Simulation and programming of robots today is time-consuming, thus expensive!
