In the SmartBOND joint project, the partners involved want to jointly develop and validate technological and organisational solutions that enable the establishment of adhesive bonding technology in shipbuilding by increasing product quality, productivity and healthy and attractive working conditions.
The aim of IBG's sub-project is to carry out the development of innovative, functional subsystems, taking into account automation that is as continuous as possible. This concerns in particular the handling processes related to the preparation of the surfaces of the components (lightweight walls and panes), implementation of the bonding process as well as process monitoring and quality assurance. All subsystems (robots, AGVs, grippers, etc.) are thus developed, built and tested and installed in the demonstrator.
This research and development project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection.
