External identifier

RLW Navigator aims to develop an innovative Process Navigator to configure, integrate, test and validate applications of Remote Laser Welding (RLW) in automotive assembly addressing today’s critical needs for frequently changing operating conditions and product-mix provisions. Thus, RLW Navigator will crucially serve as an enabler for future energy efficient smart factories. Our Laboratory is responsible for configuring RLW robotic cells, generating optimal off-line robot programs, as well as simulating the operation of cells.
