A modern wing is made from composite material – carbon fibre fabrics moulded and infused with resin.
The book Lean Robotics – A Guide to Making Robots Work in Your Factory identifies five main components for high-level conceptualization of a robotic cell: robot, tooling, sensors, safety measures, and software. At the early, high-level concept stage, the objective is to identify robotic components you can use to evaluate the robotic cell. This article will explore some important. Low-cost Automation for Prepreg Handling - Two Cases from the Aerospace Industry With an increased use of composite materials within the aerospace industry follows a need for rational and cost-effective methods for composite manufacturing.

Industries from aerospace to transportation and construction to sports equipment are turning to composite materials. Demand is rising, and advanced robotic solutions can help. The variation inherent in composite manufacturing processes is challenging dedicated tooling and automation but is no match for industrial robot flexibility.
A robotic cell for handling aerospace composite materials. Author: Curran, John P. ISNI: Awarding Body: Queen's University of Belfast Current Institution: Queen's University Belfast Date of Award: Availability of Full Text.
Robotic pick-and-place systems can be used to automate handling of a multitude of materials used in the manufacturing of composite parts. There are systems developed for automated layup of prepreg, dry fibers and thermoplastic blanks as well as to handle auxiliary materials Cited by: “But we’re also using robotics for painting and coating applications, for inspection processes, and for material handling.” Robots, such as the Yaskawa Motoman (pictured), drill holes in the titanium and aluminum structures that support the composite skins for the nose section of the Boeing jetliner.

Johnson D G & Hill J J, 'A sensory gripper for composite handling', Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Robotic Vision and Sensory. In the work by Molfino et al (), a robot cell for handling 3D carbon fabric is described, and a handling strategy is outlined which relies on a computer vision system for generating control.
Having robots load and unload allows the system to run unattended, maximizing output from high-value assets. By mounting a robot on a transport unit, one arm can even tend several machine tools. Material Removal - Aerospace manufacturers around the world have taken to robotic drilling.
Assembling an aircraft takes thousands of rivets to hold. Aerotec FFT EDAG develop automated cell to assemble composite fuselage parts. Task: To automate the assembling of aerospace composite fuselage shells for the Airbus A XWB.
Traditionally this kind of work has always been done manually given the challenging nature of working with carbon fibre resins. ‘‘With the intelligence going into the work cells, such as better tools, sensors and vision systems to more accurately measure a part’s dimensions, robots are ideal for composite manufacturing in the aerospace industry.’‘ Composite Nature The characteristics of composites, lightweight and very strong, makes them an atypical material.
Automated manufacturing of composite parts based on prepreg material is receiving increased interest with the rising use of composite materials for high-performance applications. The two main automation alternatives for prepreg layup, automated tape layup and fiber placement, are not cost-effective for all types of products, and manual labor is common for the manufacturing of complex parts.
The National Composite Center is a non-profit organization that seeks to promote, develop, demonstrate and support the commercialization of composite materials and processing techniques. Honeywell is a $24 billion technology and manufacturing company that specializes in aerospace products and services, control technologies for buildings.
The cell, shown in Figure 4 consists of a handling robot, an ABB with a lifting capacity of kg and a reach of m. The handling robot cuts prepreg on a cutting table, picks and places the prepreg on the stack and removes the protective backing paper. Composites typically weigh 20 percent less than aluminum and have a longer life span than traditional metallic materials.
Credited for higher strength-to-weight ratios, better fuel efficiency and longer service intervals, composite aircraft materials are vital to the aerospace industry. The composites revolution helped extend the jet way to robots. Robotics solutions for Aerospace Industry JMAF - MayPrinted in US 9_0 9 10 Good Reasons to invest in Robots • Reduce operating costs • Improve product quality & consistency • Improve quality of work for employees • Increase production output rates • Increase product manufacturing flexibility • Reduce material waste and increase yield • Comply with safety rules and.
This book explains technologies for emergent robotic and computer-controlled fabrication of CFRP, woven, and other types of composite materials. Information is provided on how lay-up, heating, draping, stamp forming, braiding and weaving are carried out by specially designed equipment and how these processes are controlled with real-time data.

Tri-Mack’s hybrid panel is fabricated in a robotic injection-molding cell that forms the composite geometry and produces a multi-piece assembly (including hardware) right from the mold. Feb 26th. Its robot-based composites lamination equipment (Fig.
5) was selected to build composite parts on the new Bombardier C-Series regional jet aircraft. We can expect the variety in AFP and ATL machine configurations and sizes to continue expanding in the next few years, and robot platforms will be used for more composites layup systems.
The aerospace sector has always been at the forefront of technological change, and now it is spearheading a change that worries many: a shift towards automated manufacturing. But will this, as many fear, signal a reduction in jobs, or is it an opportunity to redefine manufacturing skills for the new century?
