For the first time the course Design Automation of Customised Products has been given in the Linköping University. The course has been the results of years of research and experience, especially due to the results generated in the project e-FACTORY which is a produktion2030 and vinnova financed research project.
The course aims at utilizing the advancement of digitalization to develop products that are tailored to match specific customer needs. The aim is to practice the ability to build automated design frameworks from the interpretation of customer requirements, through design and manufacturing using numerical controlled machines (e.g. 3D-printing or CNC-machines) for testing of physical prototypes.
Students where able to apply various techniques in order to develop production automation for both machining and drawings, but also complete robotic offline programming. We are delighted by these results and look forward to further enhance in this topic.
