FurniRoboWeld

OPEN CALL 1

 Dambovita, Romania
Transilvania Digital Innovation Hub

Experiment objective

FurniRoboWeld aims to automate the process of medical furniture manufacturing with the help of a welding robot which will reduce the manufacturing cost, will increase the manufacturing accuracy and will ensure the product’s quality, all of those bringing a competitive advantage to the manufacturing SME. The geographical location where the experiment will take place will be on the factory floor of e-Laborator Feeria in Dambovita county, Romania.

FurniRoboWeld is aligned with the objectives of the DIH-World Open call because it proposes an innovation experiment involving a manufacturing SME which activates in the metal sector and produces furniture for medical laboratories and involves also a Digital Innovation Hub which will support the application of the experiment with technical and business mentoring, visibility, networking and scalability of the developed solution. The technology used in the experiment is robotics for manufacturing and is one of the I4MS technologies. We have identified the following key objectives for the proposed innovation experiment:

 

  • Objective 1: Connecting the digital needs of e-Laborator with the Transilvania Digital Innovation Hub’s ecosystem and services, in the process of defining a viable Robotic Process Automation (RPA) by the end of M6;
  • Objective 2: Facilitating the uptake of digital technologies for e-Laborator Feeria, by defining a sustainable business model and collaboration scenarios of the automation solution into the development of the Biosafety Cabinet, at the end of the experiment by month 6.
