“The Pipe Project”

Case study for Active8 Robots

The Pipe Project

Client: MTC / BAE Systems.


Sector: Aerospace, defence & maritime.

Application: Precision pipe fixturing.

Problem: Difficulties in manually measuring and assembling pipe flanges at awkward angles in confined spaces.

Solution: Automated hybrid collaborative and industrial robot cell engineered to accurately measure and manoeuvre pipe flanges for a series of pipework formations prior to manual welding process.
