Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to develop a new rectilinear branch pipe‐routing algorithm for automatic generation of rectilinear branch pipe routes in constrained spaces of aero‐engines. Design/methodology/approach – Rectilinear branch pipe routing that connects multiple...
Purpose – This paper aims to provide an overview of the strategies and techniques being used and developed for the fabrication of nanoscale devices. Design/methodology/approach – This paper discusses various nanofabrication technologies and strategies and highlights their merits and...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to show the innovative approach of manufacturing filigree and highly complex components by means of laser beam melting. Design/methodology/approach – The paper describes the unique geometric freedom of the laser beam melting technology and its...
Purpose – Economic, flexible and efficient micro production needs new miniaturized automation equipment (desktop factories). Micro assembly processes make demands on precision of miniaturized robots used in desktop factories and the driving concepts, as well as miniaturized machine elements....
Purpose – Haptics can significantly enhance the user's sense of immersion and interactivity. Especially in an assembly task, haptic feedback can help designers to have a better understanding of virtual objects and to increase task efficiency. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the...
Purpose – Simple assembly line balancing problem type 1 is the most studied assembly line problem and many procedures have been proposed to solve it. Ho and Emrouznejad proposed to add a novel set of constrains into a binary integer‐programming model that is useful for breaking symmetries...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to apply group assembly (GA) considerations to the construction industry and to provide evidence of construction sector industrialization with quantitative results. Moreover, a flexible assembly system is proposed, especially designed to cope with...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to review recent developments in micro‐scale assembly technologies, primarily in the context of microsystems based on three‐dimensional (3D) micro‐electromechanical systems (MEMS) and micro‐opto‐electromechanical systems (MOEMS) technologies....
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to describe the development, testing and scientific evaluation of a novel, load‐cell‐controlled reactive reconfigurable tooling (RRT) solution. This RRT not only addresses the underlying inherent problems with traditional reconfigurable tools but also...
Purpose – This review will describe the development of the Bionic Handling Assistant as well as the additive manufacturing (AM) process of robot grippers and its possibilities. Design/methodology/approach – AM offers the chance to use the additive processes to produce highly flexible...
