The main objective of the CORDIAL project is to develop a demonstrator of a light robotic way of manufacturing a structural assembly of an aircraft door. Traditional substructures assembly lines require either numerous work steps with recurrent and sometimes painful manual operations or very powerful machines only affordable for high production rates.
The aim of CORDIAL is to fill the gap between manual production and intensive machining with a new light weight collaborative robot. The ambition of CORDIAL is to provide a new medium not to say a new industrial paradigm where flexible cobots will collaborate with workers to make production smarter.
- Design a new door manufacturing layout where usual assembling steps are reduced to a short and lean one way assembly process
- Create an operator friendly production environment where both robot and operator can work safely and efficiently together
- Develop a new multi-functional end effector on a light weight robot
- Implement a demonstrator
