Sharework partner Dionisis Andronas, from the Laboratory for Manufacturing Systems and Automation (LMS) at the University of Patras, presented the paper “Design of Human-Robot Collaboration workstations – Two automotive case studies” during the session on Soft Robotics of the 5th International Conference on System-integrated Intelligence (SysInt), which took place on November 12 2020.
The paper details a series of methods for setting up an hybrid workstation design focusing on safe Human-Robot Collaboration and illustrates layout configurations for an efficient industrial implementation. The document reviews the requirements and challenges in aspects of safety and constant Key Performance Indicators when hybrid solutions are selected either for small or large size product assemblies.
SysInt conference provides a forum for academia and industry to disseminate their latest innovations and practices in the field of system-integrated intelligence. The focus is on integration of new, intelligent functionalities into materials, components, systems and products to enable future technologies with enhanced capabilities. Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing solutions will feature prominently in the final programme.
