CT takes part in the R&D project Smart Robotics

The Project aims to provide automated solutions with collaborative robotics. Smart Robotics can improve manufacturing, assembly, and painting processes of aeronautical structures

The objective of the Smart Robotics Project is to develop the technological elements of robotization needed in order to provide flexible and automated manufacturing, assembly, and painting solutions for aeronautical structures.

Smart Robotics aims to reduce the existing robotization gap in aeronautical assembly line processes. This innovative project tackles the technological development and demonstration of a whole new range of anthropomorphic robot heads which enable the automation of processes. The project will perform collaborative robotic operations such as drilling carbon fiber, or hybrid stacks of aluminum or titanium, sealant application, installation of rivets, bolts, etc.

Smart Robotics is a Project that implements the strategy of Industry 4.0 and the automation of factories in the future. The knowledge gained from this project will allow CT to provide engineering services that improve the efficiency and automation of manufacturing and assembly lines of aeronautical structures made with carbon fiber.

CT is part of the consortium of companies led by Airbus along with Altran, Loxin and Titania. Also collaborating on the project is the University of Cadiz as a Research Center and the FADA CATEC Foundation as a Center for Innovation.

The Smart Robotics project was funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), through the "Operational Program for Intelligent Growth 2014-2020" and the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, through the Center for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI) ) Under accession number ITC-20161264
