ARMA - Adaptive Robotized Multifunction Assembly Cell 941835
The goal of this paper is to present an innovative yet practical approach to automated aircraft assembly which meets the evolving aerospace industry requirements for flexibility and modularity.
Adaptive Robotized Multifunction Assembly cell -ARMA is then described in two different vantage points:
as a concept: a description of the philosophy which led to the development of automated assembly cells is offered
as a practical solution: a description of the modular hardware and the powerful information processing system, that supports the individual cells is provided.
The configuration which results in the most productive and effective cell while keeping the cost of equipment as low as possible is described. The ability of the cell to adapt to new requirements, as they evolve, is also described.
