September and October were two important months for the ScalABLE4.0 project. By the end of September, we were concluding our second test sprint and, in the beginning of October, we had the opportunity to present them in the 2nd Review Meeting with the European Commission along with the overall progress of the project. Now, we share them with you.
As part of the PSA Use Case, partners performed tests at Factory of the Future @ Lorraine (FFLOR) in PSA, Trémery. In the video below, you can see 2 kuka IIWA performing the piston insertion in a 3 cylinder block of a motor engine using skill-based programming.
The tasks performed by the robot resulted from a series of interactions between the different levels of the production system, such as the Advanced Plant Model (our digital twin) and MES. Some of these interactions are illustrated in the video below.
Stay tuned to see more results.■
ScalABLE4.0 is a 42 months project that aims to create scalable production systems that connect the factory floor to management. The project will focus on developing software and methodologies to perform a real-time simulation of the factory, plug-n-play hardware and flexible robotic platforms that will be able to safely interact and collaborate with human operators. ScalABLE4.0 aims to push industrial technology further on and shorten the gap between European factories and the Factory of the Future concept.
