BEAUTY, Process Supervision @ TETRA

Description 

Challenge

The BEAUTY project addresses the sector of custom-design, lot-size one metal components made out of bent pipes. Those components are important in manufacturing of steel yacht or stairs railings, aluminium frames for kitesurfing. Currently, they are mostly manufacture using manually operated equipment, which often suffers from the repeatability and quality issues.

Solution

– An industrial robot is controlled via the Hybrid Task Supervisor and utilizes the intuitive programming tools offered by HORSE for efficient and error-proof operating or previously manually operated machines.

– RFID identification is introduced for easy process management and product traceability and integrated with the HORSE framework.

– Global Awareness System is used for constant monitoring of workspace production cycle deviations.

 – The highest possible safety standards thanks to introducing laser scanners and light curtains directly connected to the robot and the machines, but also to the MPMS to handle the occurring exceptions.
