Integrated ROBOtic System for Carbon Fiber Composites Finishing Operations
Bercella took part in European research project Manunet for the designing and realization of ROBOtic, an Integrated System for Carbon Fiber Composites (CFC) Finishing Operations.
The project began at the beginning of 2018 and finished at the end of 2019 with Bercella contribution as a prominent Italian company specialized in the Composites manufacturing process, with a particular focus on Carbon Fiber technologies. Two other European partners were involved: Melton from Spain and ERO from Italy.
MNET17/NMCS-0116 – ROBO, this is the name of the robot developed by the Partners involved in the project, is a robotic solution that integrates in a flexible automated production system, more phases of the final production cycle of the components manufactured in Carbon Fiber Composite (CFC).
This need of automation results from the strong growth of CFC components demand coming from the Automotive, Aerospace and Transport sectors, to whom the actual handwork production approach has difficulties dealing with.
