Robotics, Augmented Reality and BIM in structural steel fabrication.

The CoopWeld project aimed to develop a collaborative robotic cell to perform the assembly and welding of components in steel structures.

The CoopWeld project aimed to develop a collaborative robotic cell to perform the assembly and welding of components in steel structures. The solution developed combined offline programming software, advanced perception, and augmented reality, to obtain a flexible manufacturing cell, especially for production in SMEs. In this approach, the robot is responsible for more repetitive and time-consuming tasks (welding) freeing the operator for tasks of higher added value (assembly). This demonstration project (P2020 – Projectos demonstradores) builds on top of the successful FP7 SMErobotics CLARiSSA project. The consortium grew from the three original partners, SARKKIS Robotics, INESC-TEC and NORFER, with the inclusion of the ISQ, a renowned specialist on welding.

It’s also possible to visit the real cell, this can be carried out weekly, on working days and flexible hours, making the availability of the interested parties compatible with the normal progress of the manufacturing plant.
