ACE Factories: humAn CEntred Factories Cluster is a networking Cluster of five FoF-4 projects funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme – A4BLUE, Factory2Fit, HUMAN, INCLUSIVE, and MANUWORK. Those projects are developing solutions for manufacturing work environments that adapt to each individual worker. By combining their efforts, the projects hope to achieve greater impact and wider adoption of these new developments in advanced manufacturing systems. Want to know more …Read More
Last 27th June, A4BLUE and AceFactories Cluster were presented at EFFRA Factories of the Future Community Day in Brussels by Factory2Fit EU. In the AceFactories Cluster, A4BLUE collaborate with 4 other projects funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme – Factory of the Future (FOF) calls: Factory2Fit, HUMAN, INCLUSIVE, and MANUWORK – with the aim to share experience and work together for shaping the Factories of the Future! By combining their efforts, the 5 projects hope to …Read More
The last video on A4BLUE use case scenarios is now available! This video shows you the use case scenario implemented at IK4-TEKNIKER, the coordinator of A4BLUE project. The scenario at IK4-TEKNIKER is the collaborative assembly of a latch valve in a fenceless environment, including auxiliary activities as initial preparation activities, final inspection and transport of the completed part to the warehouse. The scenario is aligned with the need for incorporating …Read More
A new video about the A4BLUE use cases is available! This video shows you the RWTH Aachen University use case developped in collaboration with the partner Illogic. Within the RWTH use case the A4BLUE solution will be applied to enhance the assembly of electric vehicle prototypes. During complex operations like the assembly of the safety critical brake pedal and the rear light, the worker will be assisted with augmented reality for …Read More
For the Airbus scenario, A4BLUE will provide a fully traceable quality process improvement for a specific set of assembly personnel including operators, quality supervisors, manufacturing engineers, and process planners. This will be done by introducing a new intelligent system for bolt tightening in hydraulic assembly, involving a Smart Torque Wrench (jointly developed between Airbus and SamOutillage) connected with an Augmented Reality Device (Hololens). The AR device will present information based …Read More
