Fraunhofer Group for Production
Heterogeneous, workload-optimized robot teams and production architectures
The Fraunhofer lighthouse project Heterogeneous, workload-optimized robot teams and production architectures (»SWAP«) develops new technological concepts to shape the production of the future.
The foundation is provided by the scalable, cyber-physical production system »SWAP-IT«. The versatility of the SWAP-IT architecture is demonstrated through four industry-relevant use cases.
"Within the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, we have joined forces with ten Fraunhofer Institutes and developed a new modular production architecture that accompanies the transformation to dynamic and flexible manufacturing environments and thus dissolves rigid production processes," project manager Niels Schmidtke explains on behalf of the consortium.
