This project is to develop an end-to-end assembly process to reduce the costs in the aircraft assembly operations, to develop a robot scanning solution to scan and inspect an aircraft wing using a mobile collaborative robot platform, and to generate and manage digital 3D scans of the aircraft parts for best ﬁt assembly operations.
The final goal is to demonstrate a production cell which will integrate
The major goal of the MAAS project is to develop an efficient automated solution for the manufacturing of aircraft sub-assemblies. The project aims to evaluate the use of collaborative robots and related automated activities within manufacturing, assembly, and inspection operations. A mobile robotics solution will be designed, developed, and integrated into a prototype assembly line
Complete and align four work packages, robotic platform, development, aeronautical manufacturing and assembly, aeronautical scanning and inspection, and project management.
MAAS is a 2-year project funded by Smart Eureka and supported by Enterprise Ireland (EI) and the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI).
The Consortium consists of Airbus, IMR, TEG, and Robotnik. IMR for its robotics expertise, TEG for its EASA approved aviation design and production skills, and its use of 3D scanning technologies. Airbus provides first-class expertise in aircraft manufacturing and assembly. Robotnik has extensive experience in the development of robots for performing autonomous tasks
