Aitiip becomes the scene of a factory of the future

MEGAROB presentation to industry and society


INVITATION - October 20, 2015. Final conference and demonstration



The next day, October 20, 2015 the final conference and demonstration of MEGAROB in Aitiip facilities in Zaragoza will take place.

We invite you to enjoy firsthand the results of this European project over 4 million budget and 36 months of development, led by the Aragonese Aitiip Technology Centre with the participation of 7 partners from 4 different countries.

It is an innovative manufacturing system based on next-generation industrial robotics serving the industry and society and installed in Aitiip.

Both accuracy and large sizes where it works, making it unique in the world.

An assembly robot on a crane through which it moves, covering a large workspace (20x6x5 meters). The operations are controlled by a program that uses a ranking algorithm programmed into the project environment, and processing the readings of a laser tracker at a rate of 1000 scans per second.

Manufacturing operations that can make this system are varied, such as drilling, milling, edging, polishing or sanding among others. These operations will be performed on large parts, more than 10 meters, other of the specific characteristics in this platform.

In this project other Spanish entities such as Grúas GH and Acciona are involved. The consortium also involved Leica and CSEM (Switzerland), Teamnet (Romania) and Espace2001 (Luxembourg).

We will have the presence of representatives of the European Commission, the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO - CDTI), the Government of Aragon and EFFRA (European Factories of the Future Research Association) representative.

We also have for the presentation and moderating of the round table by Luis Humberto Menéndez (Economics section in the newspaper Heraldo de Aragon) on advanced manufacturing and industrial applications, industry 4.0 with the participation of experts from different industries and technologies.
