The project Smart Robotics brings industry 4.0 to the aeronautical assembly lines

Led by Airbus and in which CT participates as a member of the consortium, the Smart Robotics R&D project successfully develops flexible automated low-cost Solutions

The CT engineering company, leader in technological innovation throughout the entire product life cycle, after almost three years of research and development, has successfully closed the Smart Robotics R&D project, an ambitious collaboration with Airbus and other industry reference actors, members of the consortium: Altran, Loxin and Titania, with the support of the University of Cádiz as a research center and the Fada Catec Foundation as an innovation center.

This project, in which CT Ingenieros has participated with a budget of 313,646 euros and has lasted for 33 months, aimed to achieve flexible automated solutions of low cost for the assembly of aeronautical carbon fiber structures. The project is framed in the strategy of Industry 4.0 and in the automation of the factories of the future,

During the final phase, the CT team located in Seville and Puerto Real has worked on the improvement of an interchangeable industrial head prototype through a standard interface and has developed a software capable of performing a classification of defects by analyzing images through of artificial vision and neural networks.

The project has addressed the development and demonstration at a technological level of a range of heads for anthropomorphic robots that allow automation and robotization of processes of aeronautical assembly lines such as carbon fiber drilling, sealant application, rivet installation , bolts, etc.

With this initiative, CT adds new capabilities to its already extensive experience in projects framed in the achievement of industrial environments adapted to Industry 4.0 and the factories of the future, such as Plug & Play or TRREX.

The Smart Robotics project has been funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), through the “Intelligent Growth Operational Program 2014-2020” and the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, through the Center for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI ) with file number ITC-20161264.
