Cobot as intelligent tooling?

„If the Airbus Group knew what she knows…“ Guided by this principle the construction of the A350 a facility-crossing and cross­divisional exchange of the topic CFK-tooling occurred. The meeting took place for the 23rd time – though today with a complete new focus and a new circle of participants.

This 23rd workshop which took place at the technology center Nordenham this time, was all about the topic „Cobot as intelligent tooling- what advantage does it bring for the aviation industry?“.
With over 60 participants from all parts of the Airbus Group divisons (Airbus Operations, Defence & Space, Helicopters, PAG) this question was being discussed.
On the second day of the workshop external suppliers and partners complemented the discussion with their developments of lightweight robots, this way the participants got new ideas and impulses from the outside. The event was complemented with a factory tour and a tour of the technology center.
