Purpose – Aims to research the possibilities of using piezoelectric technology to improve accuracy and other characteristics of parallel servo grippers. Design/methodology/approach – The paper presents in detail two different kinds of developed two‐fingered servo grippers based on...
Purpose – To present the findings of the research on the use of concurrent engineering in the development of polymeric based composite automotive clutch pedal. It covers the use of various IT such as expert system, FEA, CAD, mould flow and rapid prototyping in order to carry out various...
Purpose – The paper describes the operation of two hose maufacturing machines. Design/methodology/approach – The systems use servo drives (Rexroth) and ultrasonic cutting heads. Findings – System reduces costs and gives greater flexibility with an expected payback time of 2‐3 years....
Purpose – Describes how one company addressed the need for a pallet conveyor innovation which would achieve a number of goals such as reduced maintenance, operating noise, physical cross section and improve the ability to integrate into an assembly or manufacturing application....
Purpose – Aims to determine if friction welding is suitable for welding austenitic stainless steel (AISI 304) Design/methodology/approach – Uses an experimental continuous drive friction welding set‐up. Determined the strength, hardness and microstructure of the joined parts. Findings –...
Purpose – Aims to develop a selective disassembly methodology for generating an optimum disassembly sequence for end‐of‐life (EOL) products. Design/methodology/approach – The paper presents a selective disassembly methodology for EOL products. In order to achieve this, Nevins and...
Purpose – To review presentations on assembly and joining given at a seminar, “The changing face of robotics: inside and outside the factory”, organised by the UK Institution of Electrical Engineers. Design/methodology/approach – Details are given of three presentations. The first is by...
Purpose – Develops a neural network based system for optimum assembly speeds using thread‐forming fasteners. Design/methodology/approach – Uses a three layer neural network to optimise thread forming speeds based on thread diameter and pitch and the total number of thread coils. Findings...
Purpose – This paper highlights new automated assembly system components introduced in late 2004. Products meet new levels of environmental protection and offer features for quicker assembly system design and commissioning. Design/methodology/approach – Attended various trade shows and...
