Productive Milling with Industrial Robots

ARTIS, 100% conducted to online process monitoring on machine tools before COMET, was involved in a work package to develop an offline approach to simulate process forces, which are considered to influence the robot accuracy behavior. ARTIS also demonstrated the benefit of the process monitoring solution Genior Modular, which safeguards the productivity level in the demo robot cell of Italian robot cell integrator SIR S.p.A., Italy.

COMET hosts successful robotics’ seminar and is branded as a benchmark for EU funded projects

On 4th June 2013, the COMET project hosted a very successful Robotics’ Technical Seminar at partner SIR’s headquarters in Modena, Italy. Jan Willem Gunnink, Project Coordinator, opened the 9th and final General Assembly meeting for the project on Wednesday 5th June. Having been granted an extension due to the project’s success, partners have been able to carry out additional robot machining tests to further improve accuracy, share and gain knowledge, and enhance developments.

Delcam host successful UK Technical Seminar

As part of dissemination activities, the COMET project is hosting four technical seminars throughout Europe. Delcam, project coordinator, hosted and organised the second of these at CNC Robotics in Liverpool on 25th April. It was a hugely successful event with close to 40 people attending and a great way for project partners to share the results with the wider audience; robot integrators, manufacturers and journalists were all present.

R&D Work Finalised

The COMET project consortium gathered for the 8th General Assembly meeting and the closing meeting for 2012, held on 11th-12th December in Sheffield, UK; the same location as the 2nd GA meeting, back in November 2010. Only 2.5 months have passed since the previous GA and significant progress has been noted over that period, with the most important being the official end of R&D work and gaining the project extension for 4 more months. From now on the COMET consortium will be focused on demonstrations and training on the COMET platform.

COMET Project on its trajectory towards success

The COMET project consortium gathered for the 7th General Assembly meeting, held at the striking BTU University Library, Cottbus, Germany from 26th – 28th September 2012. With the end date of the R&D work just around the corner, final polishing of the COMET developments is taking place. Starting from November 2012, the COMET consortium will be focused on demonstrations and training on the COMET platform.
