Overview
Our research involves the design and implementation of flexible machines, mechanical hardware, electronics, control and software. The goal is customizing, which is now in great demand. The new machine tool industry will allow corporations to respond to the ever changing patterns of world trade. The new manufacturing systems can analyze new products and automatically will produce near optimal plans for production. Adaptability is the key.

The research comprises a series of projects implementing an Intelligent Bending Workstation:

  • Bend Sequence Planner
  • BendCad Modeler
  • Fine Motion Planner
  • Grasping Planner
  • Motion Planner
  • Stacking Planner
