TPR is pleased to announce it has been chosen by BAE Systems to continue working on current and emergent projects in its “Factory of the Future”.
Our previous work consisted of providing robot guiding technology to enhance the accuracy of conventional robots, significantly reducing the need for traditional assembly tooling. This was realised on a concept fuselage in an industry 4.0 factory demonstrator with TPR`s ‘Adaptive Robot Control (ARC)’ solution.
TPR were again selected, following a joint proof of concept trial in the Factory of the Future utilising new Creaform hardware sourced by TPR, to further enhance the accuracy and build on learning previously gained.
Moving forwards further work will be undertaken to define and develop the future Industry 4.0 connectivity, system maturity and scalability.
We are delighted to have been selected and trusted for such a significant project in BAE Systems Factory of the Future and we cannot wait to get started.
Martin Knott, Factory of the Future Technology Team Lead and Licensed Technologist for Air said “We are again looking forward to working with TPR to continue our developments and integration of their technologies along with the newly selected hardware. TPR are one of over 50 key partners, who are collaborating with us and share the vision of our developments for UK manufacturing”
