The Basque city of San Sebastian has hosted the opening meeting for the European project ECOXY “Bio-based recyclable, reshapable and repairable (3R) fibre-reinforced EpOXY composites for automotive and construction sectors.”
Advanced Factories is an international fair on innovation in machine tools, industrial automation and Industry 4.0, which brings together more than 8,000 professionals from 25 countries interested in optimizing production systems and machinery to develop the factories of the future.
Imagine a robot with the ability to perform a whole range of common manufacturing operations from milling and drilling to polishing and painting, on parts in excess of 10 metres, achieving the type of accuracies normally associated only with smaller components.
The BARBARA project aims to develop new bio-based materials with innovative functionalities through the incorporation of additives coming from bio-mass so that, by means of Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), - the most widely spread technology for 3D printing (or additive manufacturing) - prototypes with industrial applications can be obtained.
The project is entitled FALCON and the objective of this project is to design and manufacture an innovative tooling system to produce composite parts for airplanes. To achieve this goal a budget of 496.250€ will be invested in 18 months.
José Antonio Dieste, Aitiip researcher and Head of Robotics Department, is presenting the paper "LARGE COMPONENTS MULTIMATERIAL HYBRID MANUFACTURING" in the 10th International Conference on Industrial Tools and Advanced Processing Technologies, which is taking place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, between 24th and 26th April 2017. This paper is describing our developments thanks to #Megarob and Kraken Project.
