Innovationen für Montageprozesse und Qualitätssicherung:

Fraunhofer IWU with three world firsts at AUTOMATICA 2014

Press Release / 22.5.2014

At the 6th AUTOMATICA International Trade Fair for Automation and Mechatronics (Hall B4/Stand 228), the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology IWU is presenting three world firsts from June 3-6. A snake robot will be used to demonstrate how aircraft wing assembly can be automated. An “intelligent” adaptive alignment system will bring a completely new and much quicker quality control loop to car body construction. Hitherto, the fully automated inspection of screw threads has not been possible. Scientists have now succeeded in making a breakthrough using an innovative “sensitive” robot.
