  5. 5. EFFICIENCY OF FLEXIBLE FIXTURES: DESIGN AND CONTROL

    Author : Ilker Erdem; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; control; design; fixture; assembly; manufacturing; efficiency; flexible; production;

    Abstract : The manufacturing industries have been using flexible production technologies to meet the demand for customisation. As a part of production, fixtures have remained limited to dedicated technologies, even though numerous flexible fixtures have been studied and proposed by both academia and industry. READ MORE
