The EC financed COMET research program is targeting on the moving control optimization, of industrial robots, by making use of high qualified equipment and software, scoping on the development of an immediate exploitable platform solution.
Within 2.5 years time, a very sort time according to EU research standards, COMET heads to deal with difficulties faced by EU constructors, by developing innovative treatment systems, which will be more accurate, flexible and reliable. This will result according to the project’s estimation in a 30% cost reduction, on average, compared to the traditional mechanical processing.
Despite the fact that the use of industrial robots could become fundamental for effective solutions on the field of metal processing, the lack of accuracy and repeatability, the inability of dealing and deleting disorders, as well as the lack of a reliable software planning and resemblance system, makes exploitation of robots in industry a very ambiguous task. COMET is trying to deal with all of these problems on a revolutionary way based on the experience and the know-how of research and education institutions participating on the program. (AMRC Manufacturing Ltd, Marposs-ARTIS, BTU Cottbus, Delcam, DemoCenter-Sipe, Fraunhofer IPA, Gizelis Robotics, Lund University, N.Bazigos SA, Nikon Metrology, Nisaform s.r.o, SIR SpA, TEKS, LMS-University Of Patras)
Bazigos SA participation in the program has to do with the construction of a fast micro-correction unit. In fact Bazigos SA will construct exclusively a whole mechanism and parts of a second one. Operations will take place in the company’s state of the art facilities making use of its high tech equipment and extensive know-how. With the project’s completion Bazigos SA will be one of the two exclusive producers of such a unit and of course one of its least traders.
