Stage in progress
Date April 2016
Company Artis Engineering with Fraunhofer Institute Chemnitz (Partner)
Role Periphery Engineering, Toolpath Computation, Robot Operator
Text In collaboration with Fraunhofer Institute, the potential of incremental sheet forming for mass-customized facade metal panels is investigated. Various materials were tested, end-effectors developed and toolpaths optimized. During this research phase, feedback routines were implemented via torque force sensor data and further performance improved. The ongoing research aims at the development a market-ready production framework.
