CTAG will explain at JAI2018 its advances in BIG DATA technology

Jornadas de Automatización Industrial  JAI2018

CTAG will participate in the Industrial Automation Conferences (JAI2018) to show its innovations in the field of BIG DATA research, within the European project LICORNE (LIssage de COrdons Robotisé Novateur Expert).

LICORNE aims to optimise the application processes of body coatings, for which the sealing material is applied with a subsequent removal of the excess quantity (bead forming), in a way that always ensures the functionality of the application.

The project is led by PSA Groupe, with the participation of the following companies together with CTAG: Clemessy (France), working in the fields of robotics and machine vision; Ringler (Germany), offering solutions for the removal of excess material; and IS2M (France), which works in the field of materials to ensure properties that stabilize the process.

CTAG, which participates in the project in the field of BIG DATA, will explain at the conference the progress in the application of this technology. This system will inform the people in charge of the operation of the installation about the most suitable parameters, which allow the stability in the application of these coatings regardless of variations in the properties of the material, the process and the environmental parameters. It traces the information from the welding process to the bead forming process.

CTAG’s development also includes an information system for the monitoring, sharing and visualization of all collected data.

JAI2018 will take place at the Assembly Hall of the School of Industrial Engineering of Vigo (University Campus) from March 12th to 16th.
