The AMRC Integrated Manufacturing Group uses robotics, automation and large-volume metrology to develop new ways of automatically assembling complex products for aerospace and other high-value industries.

The aerospace industry is increasingly looking to automate assembly tasks that are currently carried out by hand. But unlike an automotive production line, where a large number of robots can be programmed to carry out repeated tasks, aerospace demands more flexible solutions.

Robot cells need to be more adaptable, to switch between different components and carry out a range of tasks; and more intelligent, to identify, locate and assemble components without having to be programmed for each movement.

We work with our industrial partners to bring together advanced technologies in robotics, automation, vision systems and metrology. We develop integrated systems which ensure that complex structures are assembled perfectly first time and every time.
