Flexible Automation Systems
Tomorrow's production should be agile, easy and flexible. The focus of the group Flexible Automation Systems on increasing process and plant agility. The research addresses current challenges in the field of automation for aerospace applications.
Assembly and Joining Technologies
How can components for the aerospace industry be assembled automatically? The Assembly and Joining Technology team develops automated solutions for this problem. The portfolio includes the development of clamping technologies, fixtures and end effectors. Additional research topics are robot process and automation technology, tolerance and variant management, and the overall process control are research topics.
Production Integrated Quality Assurance
Inline, of course – that's how the quality assurance of tomorrow should work. Thanks to the focus of the DLR Center for Lightweight Production Technology in Augsburg on the production-integrated real-time acquisition of manufacturing data in combination with specialized sensor systems for quality parameters adapted to the process, production can be continuously monitored and readjusted in good time before rejects even occur.
Processes and Automation
In the aerospace industry there is the need for new automated production solutions due to the comparatively low production rates of aircrafts in combination with the high number of part variants. Automation is one key element in reducing the production costs and to increase part quality.
Pilot for Production Processes
The site in Augsburg has a comprehensive range of machinery and qualified skilled workers. In-house production is the cornerstone greater sustainability and higher quality. From development to the finished product, the complete value creation takes place in-house.
