May 2012TEKS – Reaching beyond the COMET TEKS – Reaching beyond the COMET
The COMET consortium will create a revolutionary solution enabling the use of industrial robots for high-end machining, which in combination with an innovative Plug-and-Produce platform will fulfill the needs from the manufacturing industry for cost effective, flexible and reliable manufacturing solutions.
A methodology for describing Kinematic and Dynamic Models of Industrial Robots (KDMIR) to define accurately the static and dynamic behaviour of any industrial robot, which is then represented by its unique signature.
An integrated Programming and Simulation environment for Adaptive Robot Path Generation for machining with Industrial Robots (PSIR) based upon the unique signatures.
|An Adaptive Tracking system for Industrial Robots (ATIR) to detect deviations from the programmed Robot Path to initiate real-time corrections via the robot controller to ensure the necessary machining accuracy.|
A High Dynamics Compensation Mechanism (HDCM) to accomplish an absolute accuracy of more than 50um; significantly ‘beyond’ the structural capability of the robot system on its own.
