Robot assisted framing

Bolmsjö, Gunnar LU ; Petersson, Håkan LU and Bjärnemo, Robert LU (2008)
Abstract
The paper describes a concept for securing the geometry in flexible production based on robot assisted

framing. This uses the robot(s) as an active device during change-over between product variants and it is

assumed that product variants can be produced in any mixed order. The case under study is cabs for trucks

which in traditional production require large and heavy equipment which is above the payload of any robot. The

idea within this study is to use carbon fibre composites in the fixtures in order to reduce the weight and through

this make it possible to use the robots in assisting the framing process. The current work involves a

generalization of the principle both considering the... (More)
