Abstract: Abstract. Demand for more versatile assembly and handling systems to facilitate customised production is gaining in importance. A new handling principle has been developed as a cost-effective approach to adapt to component-dependent tasks. It is based upon the gripping and movement of objects by multiple arms within a parallel kinematic structure. This structure combines the advantages of a system of co-operating robots with a simplified drive concept, in which the number of drives used is sharply reduced. On … Show more

“…However, a high degree of automation still correlates negatively with the flexibility of a production system which can lead to a major negative impact on the return on investment calculation. Recently, promising progress has been made developing modular and reconfigurable assembly systems [9,11]. There is a significant lack of corresponding software solutions to allow for an efficient exploitation of the available flexibility as promised by computer-aided process planning (CAPP).…”
