SOFOCLES (Smart and Flexible Clamping Solutions for Sealing) is a project founded by the European Union through EIT Manufacturing. Its main goals are to provide Flexible, Reconfigurable and Smart solutions for handling and clamping large and complex components for different processes using high payload colaborative robots.
SOFOCLES WILL INTRODUCE
A coordinated and collaborative dual-robot system for very high payloads and with a high degree of autonomy, prepared for a safe and efficient Human-Robot (H-R) Collaboration.
A flexible Handling and Tooling system, integrated on the robots, able both for manipulating and clamping the parts during the process (concept “Robot as a Tooling”)
A Digital Twin of the cell for the safe and efficient (H-R) interaction
