New System Transforming the Composite Process
Think about robotic manufacturing. Are you imagining large, heavy machinery in a factory?
Consider a lighter touch…
In partnership with the University of Southern California and Southwest Research Institute, our Advanced Technology Laboratories with funding by ARM (The Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing) Institute and Lockheed Martin Emerging Operations Technologies, developed a robotic cell to handle an intricate process previously thought to be unfeasible for robots to master.
What is it?
Why does it matter?
It saves time, money, improves quality, and reduces human fatigue.
The U.S. composite market is a $26.7 billion industry driven by time-insensitive and physically taxing labor. Developed in response to a project call issued by the ARM (Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing) Institute, this new process expands the scope of what robotic systems can perform in manufacturing.
