The main objective of CANNIER is to develop a flexible robotic cell for the automatic lamination of carbon fibre reinforcements that have been pre-impregnated (prepreg) with activated resin, making the process more agile and sustainable. To achieve these results, tailored robotic end-effectors and a CAM software for the computing of the lamination trajectories will be developed.
The solution proposed consists of two main technological developments, brought by the project partners:
1-Roboticssa developed a CAM software that automatically generates the robot trajectories, extracting all required parameters from the CAD of the parts to be manufactured and of the robotic tools. To maximise effectiveness, a user-friendly HMI allows operators to adjust lamination trajectories based on their experience.
2-Stam was in charge of the mechanical design of the robotic hardware, including: tools for the ply lamination, a solution to quickly change the tools, the cell frame and jigs for mould positioning. The lamination tools were specially designed to adapt to several mould geometries and apply constant pressure, ensuring consistent ply consolidation.
