On May 27, 2021, the defense of Ali Kanso’s doctoral thesis entitled “Methodology for the realization of a sensitive assembly task based on a handling device and intelligent sensor technology” was held at ZeMA. Due to the restrictions caused by the Corona pandemic, the event had to be held via videoconference.
Mr. Kanso’s PhD thesis validates the methodology for sensitive joining using the example of a winding process for continuous rubber gaskets.
The increasing complexity of production processes and products poses great challenges for the use of robots, so that position-controlled robot systems as well as sensor systems sometimes reach their limits. The use of force-controlled or sensitive robot systems represents a possible solution to the problem.
In this thesis, a methodology for the implementation of complex assembly tasks using a sensitive robot system is presented. The essential functions and methods for the efficient use and commissioning of the main components of a sensitive robot system are developed. The methodology is tested and validated using the example of the sensitive winding application of an endless rubber seal.
The Robotix-Academy project consortium is glad about the successful PhD together with Mr. Kanso, project leader of the Robotix-Academy, and would like to congratulate very much!
