PhD robotic proposal

published on 16/05/2019

PhD proposal:

Robotic cell development for hybridization of multiple additive manufacturing process in view of large parts manufacturing.

The PhD will be commonly supervised by IREPA LASER, research and development center based in Strasbourg, offering industrial laser R&D and pioneer in metallic additive manufacturing; and by Pascal Institute, based in Clermont-Ferrand, within Machines, Mechanisms and Industrial Systems (MMSI) theme of the M3G axis.

The PhD is intended to be carried out jointly with a national industry-oriented 3 years project. It aims at developing a multi robot and multi processes system enabling large metallic parts (> 1 m) additive manufacturing. End users, partners in this project, are major industry leaders of energy, aeronautics and space.

In this scope, the main PhD objectives are:

  • To define the architecture of the cell and distribute robot/ parts mobilities
  • To optimize path planning of robots (for each process)
  • To implement monitoring means of the robot cell.

Applicant is expected to own strong skills concerning modelling of robotic systems and have good knowledges about metal AM processes.
