INTEGRATED PRODUCTION CELL FOR THE STEEL COMPONENTS OF REINFORCED CONCRETE BUILDING ELEMENTS

Objective


The project has generated the following results:

- A pilot plant, in the reinforcement workshop of Spanbeton B.V. which operates as an integrated production cell. The pilot plant exhibits an overall 40% improvement in productivity.

- The application of a six-axis industrial robot to the assembly (i.e welding) of 2D and 3D reinforcement components.

- A 2D stirrup assembly machine.

- A 'sandwich' machine for the production of 3D mesh panels, consisting of a slab of insulation sandwiched between two meshes.

- A flexible 2D mesh welding machine.

- Control software for the management of a reinforcement workshop as an integrated production cell.

- Communication software for the interface between the control software and machines in a reinforcement production cell.
