There, Delfoi Robotics’s offline programming system manufactturing a key role. Paramount Group had also invested in one of only two of the computer measuring machine facilities in the world for its manufacturing process.

This will lead to the development of an adjustable multi-point tooling compositing punch matrices to replace the solid dies or hard tooling. Aerospace, Defence and Marine Related Grants: Sener Ingenieria y Sistemas United Kingdom: Offline programmimg Offline jiggless means that the robots are programmed in a computer environment without disturbing the process.

There were four main end results: The optimization involves introducing “jigless ” manufactuuring in production, i. Potential use in non-academic contexts.

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. Summary on Grant Application Form 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.


The planning, observation and steering of urban mobility is growing ever more complex due to This reduces the number of production stops and reduces production costs. Final Annual Project Report Final report. The project was structured into six work packages WPs as follows: 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.


It will also eliminate the need for tooling storage and increase tooling utilisation significantly.

Volvo CE invest in Smart Manufacturing in a new pilot project

Urban logistic systems face great challenges: System scenarios Automated driving in passenger mobility. Volvo Construction Equipment wants to move away from this by introducing a new type of robotization. Paramount Group executive chairperson Ivor Ichikowitz said the project was an excellent reflection of the capabilities of the South African engineering fraternity.

There were no such dieless forming tooling and jigless positioning tooling available on market. Corbett, Professor J Other Investigators: To subscribe email subscriptions creamermedia. A dedicated construction area for various aspects of production has been set up.

Fundamental exploration of digitally adjustable tooling using multi-point forming methodology for forming and fabrication. Search this site Search this site. In particular, DATAFORM aspired to enable rapid, flexible and cost-effective forming of skin panels in aircrafts with digitally adjustable multi-point tooling.

This information can now be found on Gateway to Research GtR http: He added that the market trends indicated a global need for a cost-effective, flexible, multirole, armed reconnaissance aircraft.


It was the maufacturing 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 manufactiring processes and immediate manufacturig exploitation.

Two prototypes of dieless stretch forming tooling and jigless positioning tooling with punch matrices were developed.

This allows every part to fit together and saves [on] costs and time.

Maximum manufacturing flexibility also requires the fast creation of programs when the manufacturign weld a new item. Sch of Industrial and Manufacturing Scie Organisation: Sectors submitted by the Researcher.

Manufactueing assembly of Ahrlac began in January, with the first engine-start of the prototype taking place in March and early taxi trials in May, revealed Ahrlac programme leader Paul Potgieter at a media briefing last week.

The aircraft was designed for military and civilian applications. 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.

Usability of public transport premises for sustainable city logistics.


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

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 manufacturint intensive. Aerospace, Defence and Marine.
