The SYMPLEXITY project is funded by the European Commission as part of the program H2020-EU.2.1.5. – Advanced manufacturing and processing. Factories of the Future is a program in which the European Commission and industry are collaborating in research to support the development and innovation of new enabling technologies for the EU manufacturing sector.In nearly every sector of industrial manufacturing polishing techniques are used. But often manual polishing is the only option because the tasks are too complex to be automated.
Therefore in SYMPLEXITY Symbiotic Human-Robot Solutions for Complex Surface Finishing Operations will be developed.
The consortium consists of 15 partners from universities, end-users, integrators and polishing experts. The partners come from 6 countries all over Europe.
QISAB is one of the consortium members
