Urban logistic systems face great challenges: It often requires access to custom machines, jigs and fixtures that are not used for some time or that take a long time to change, which is costs manucacturing. To advertise email advertising creamermedia.

Offline programmimg Offline programming means that the robots are programmed in a computer environment without disturbing the process. Volvo Construction Equipment is at the forefront of this development and is now investing in a pilot project that will streamline the production of low volume items and reduce production costs. WP 3 – Development of jiglrss adjustable multi-point tooling The primary objective of WP3 was to build a novel and efficient digitally adjustable multi-point tooling system based on the principle of MPF and to develop automatic robotic control techniques manufqcturing a flexible fabrication tooling.

Corbett, Professor J Other Investigators: This allows every part to fit together and saves [on] costs and time. Smart manufacturing and robotization are becoming increasingly common in Swedish industries.


This will lead to the development of an adjustable multi-point tooling compositing punch matrices to replace the solid dies or hard tooling. The Advanced High-Performance Reconnaissance Light Aircraft Ahrlac is a manufacfuring twin-boom, single-engine surveillance and light-strike aircraft for a tandem-seated crew of two people.

The industrial and scientific breakthrough objectives of the project jiglees. These production aspects included composite stations, machining from billets and sheet metal, manufacturing of most of the visible wing and tail parts, as well as protoshop and pipe bending. The main advantageous features of DATAFORM were rapid, universal, and cost-effective with high flexibility compared with present hard fabrication tooling.

The aircraft was designed for military and civilian applications.

Volvo CE invest in Smart Manufacturing in a new pilot project

The work involves definition of the role of tooling within the assembly environment and the inter-relationships between product design, manufacture and assembly characteristics.

Solution of the key technological problems of adjustable multi-point tooling.

Sener Ingenieria y Sistemas United Kingdom: The collaborative research involves 5 academic institutions and five major aerospace companies. It was the aim of DATAFORM to empower the tooling technology with a clear focus on industrial use for aeronautics, and to drive the rapid development of flexible tooling in manufacturing leading to new processes and immediate industrial exploitation.

Delfoi Delfoi develops, markets and supports Industry 4. Two prototypes of dieless stretch forming tooling and jigless positioning tooling with punch matrices were developed.

Performance Improvement for Vehicles on Track. A locally designed and built aircraft has entered the ground-testing phase at Wonderboom Airport, in Pretoria, marking a significant milestone for South Africa-based defence solutions business Paramount Group.

The research seeks to develop methodologies, software tools, and to exploit technological advances in robotic and measurement technology to build an environment for enabling jigless assembly of Aerostructures. Mainly, it is about items up to about manufactuuring kilos, but in the long run the concept can also be an integral part in the production of major components such as vehicle frames.


Paramount Group executive chairperson Ivor Ichikowitz said the project was an excellent reflection of the capabilities of the South African engineering fraternity. WP 4 – Integration and validation WP4 aimed to integrate the developed hardware and software components into a DATAFORM tooling system ready for validation and its full functions, and to test and optimise the developed digitally adjustable multi-point tooling, and validate the flexible tooling with different materials for different applications.

A dedicated construction area for various aspects of production has been set up. Delfoi Robotics Delfoi Planner. This reduces the number of production stops and reduces production costs. Potential use in non-academic contexts. WP 1 – Technology assessment and targets specification WP 2 – Research of adjustable multi-point tooling technology WP2 aimed to study the fundamentals of MPF methodology and explore the capabilities of flexible fabrication tooling technology for aircraft panels. Aerospace, Defence and Marine.

This will lead to the realisation of rapid dieless forming of skin panels and to the accurate jigless fabrication of panel structures in aviation. Sectors submitted by the Researcher.
