Penelope is a new Industry 4.0 solution to further innovation in intelligent, efficient and flexible manufacturing for high-precision large parts.
The project, supported by the European Commission and launched in November 2020, is taking advantage of the new horizons in manufacturing, opened by Industry 4.0, to develop a novel closed-loop digital pipeline based on the development of modular and reconfigurable production approach for the manufacturing of high-precision large-scale parts.
Together and for a period of 48 months, PENELOPE´s extensive and multinational partnership of 31 European organizations, led by AIMEN TECHNOLOGY CENTRE, is developing an end-to-end digital manufacturing solution for a flexible and more precise manufacturing of large-parts in novel connected factories. PENELOPE relies on a modular, flexible and worker-centric approach, targeting key labour-intensive and non-ergonomic tasks while preserving workers’ knowledge and skills. Penelope´s solution will allow factories to release highly customised and value-added products while reducing reconfiguration time.
This booklet is the outcome of three PeneloPe deliverables:
- Safe, modular and flexible robotics technologies showcasing pre-pilot demonstrators for flexible and safe collaborative robots operating in large-part high-precision manufacturing applications led by COMAU with the collaboration of the project partners Airborne, LMS, TECNALIA, JASO, UNIMORE, K-Loops, Fraunhofer IGP, AIMEN, DGH, TNO, TU Delft, SAMXL and the University of Coimbra.
- Intuitive human-robot collaborative solutions showcasing pre-pilot demonstrators featuring HRI/C at both cognitive and physical level led by LMS with the collaboration of the project partners AIMEN, TECNALIA, DGH and the University of Coimbra.
- AR/VR tools showcasing the AR/VR tools assisting in manufacturing, supervision and in-situ repair led by TTPSC, with the collaboration of other project partners LMS, BIBA, CEA List and IPC.
