Abstract: So far the desktop manufacturing is mainly done as islands of process modules or in some seldom cases the desktop factory is created in form of manufacturing line. Tampere University of Technology has been working on such desktop factory concepts for years and come out a microFactory concept (TUT-µF). The paper discusses architectural aspects and proposes some solutions for them. It specifies also two main mechatronic interfaces used for such modular desktop factories-1) the cell to cell interface and 2) cell … Show more

“…This is comparatively better than a serial structure with comparable limb dimensions, since the parallel structure achieves a larger space of high repeatabilities. 6 The workspace of APIS is shown in Fig. 2 in comparison with the dimensions of a common credit-card.…”

“…Nowadays, there are also a few examples in Europe of research and industry projects. In research, examples of modular production cells such as the system developed by Sitala et al 6 can be found. Another concept of assembly modules mounted around a fixed platform is followed up in research projects by Gaugel et al 7 and Rochdi et al 8 and by the industrial manufacturer MiLaSys.…”

“…The first impulse for desktop factories was given by MEL (Okazaki et al , 2002) in Japan with the estimation that a 1/10 size reduction of production machines could lead to a decrease of energy consumption of about 1/100 compared to a conventional factory. Nowadays, there are also a few examples in Europe of research and industry projects, such as the miniaturized robot Pocket Delta (Codourey et al , 2006), the robot Parvus (Burisch et al , 2007; Ellwood et al , 2011) described below, miniaturized environments such as factory cells (Sitala et al , 2010) or handling devices for nano objects from Klocke Nanotechnik GmbH (Klocke, 2001). A more detailed discussion of the state of the art for precision robots and desktop factories can be found in previous articles of the authors (Burisch et al , 2007, 2011).…”
