The Intelligent Manufacturing
Laboratory at the University
was established in cooperation with Nokia Mobile Phones Ltd., in 2002 to
nurture research and education in Intelligent Manufacturing. The Lab
replicates the manufacturing environment in the assembly of cellular phones
and consists of two assembly lines containing modular assembly cells. These
cells manufactured by Prodel Automation implement an asynchronous pallet transfer system and can
be equipped with dual Cartesian manipulators, SCARA robot, or a six-axis Staubli manipulator. These modules are interchangeable
and plugged to a centralized extendable base. Pallets to each assembly
station are transported by a conveyor system
integrated into the line.
The laboratory has among other robotic
equipment, 2 dual-manipulator cells containing linear modules, an ADEPT
robot, and a six-degree of freedom SCARA robot.
