Aachen / Reutlingen - The aim of the research project "Horus" is to develop an economic machining solution for medium and large workpieces by cooperating robots. The project starts with studies of the static and dynamic behavior depending on the robot position. The resulting stability maps are used to determine the limits of the processing ability. The path planning of the robot integrates a continiouse CAD-CAM-RC-process chain to distribute high-volume processing features to multiple robots at the optimal and collision-free mapping between feature and robot is determined. Currently the demonstration cell for the research project "Horus" is set up, consisting of a KUKA KR 300 R2500 ultra SE, a powerful milling spindle and an appropriate protective housing. http://www.horus.smartautomationlab.de/
