Purpose – This paper sets out to highlight the problem associated with the development of fieldbus diagnostics in a multi‐vendor environment and to propose a solution based on diagnostic function blocks (FB). Design/methodology/approach – The work focuses on the “master‐slave”...
Purpose – This paper sets out to report on the developments in the evolution of advanced composite fibre structure production systems, to highlight advanced equipment already in production and to examine efforts to extend automated technology to assessing damage and automatically repairing...
Purpose – This paper aims to develop a strategy for high‐precision assembly in a semi‐structured environment based on vision and force control. Design/methodology/approach – The position and orientation of a part are identified using the vision system. The force/torque control algorithm...
Purpose – This paper aims to develop an easily reconfigurable assembly cell. Design/methodology/approach – Some functions are implemented to resolve problems associated with physical reconfiguration of an agent‐based robotic assembly cell, such as position calibration and workspace...
Purpose – This paper aims to develop path‐planning techniques that support a general selective disassembly planner in a virtual reality environment. Design/methodology/approach – The paper presents an automatic selective disassembly planning and two path‐planning techniques that support...
Purpose – Laser milling is a non‐conventional layer‐by‐layer material removal technology suitable for machining a wide range of materials. This technology is particularly suitable to produce microstructures inside cavities, also obtained by other conventional processes, though with larger...
Purpose – This paper seeks to establish parallel robots with strong performance characteristics in handling and assembly processes. Design/methodology/approach – The presented work introduces concepts and solutions related to the improvement of parallel kinematic mechanisms. Structural design...
Purpose – This paper seeks to present an investigation on building controlled drug delivery device (DDD) matrix using fused deposition modelling (FDM) rapid prototyping (RP) process. The focus of the study is on the effect of FDM fabricated macro‐features of reservoir‐matrix DDD models on...
Purpose – This paper seeks to describe automated lamp manufacturing. Design/methodology/approach – The paper provides information on the automated manufacture of incandescent, fluorescent and light‐emitting diodes (LEDs). Findings – The paper finds that the automated manufacture of...
Purpose – This paper aims to illustrate how robots can form an efficient, versatile and cost‐effective component in assembly operations. Design/methodology/approach – The applicability of robots is illustrated by two integrated confectionery‐packing solutions, followed by a description of...
