807 Robots in the wood industry, feasibility study

Published: 13 September 2011

The purpose of this study is to compile the level of technology and industrial examples of robots in complex production environments where advanced situational adjustment required example would be robots in collaboration with trucks or robots as a problem solver in the transport system.

Area: Measurement and Process
Budget: 190 000 SEK
Schedule: January - September 2011
Project Manager: Jan-Erik Andersson, Sp Trä

Background

The goal of this study is to establish opportunities to use robots in the sawmill industry and other wood industries. Today, new rules on security in production processes facilitate the design and practical implementation with less need for mechanical protection. The combination of 3D cameras and robots makes it possible to create systems that can perform  operations in the process that currently must be performed by humans.

Purpose and objectives

The purpose of this study is to compile the level of technology and industrial examples of robots in complex production environments where advanced adaptivity is required, i.e. robots in collaboration with trucks or robots as problem solvers in the transport system.

The goal is to provide three examples that demonstrate ways to implement a robotics project at the sawmill / timber industry based on the 3D sensor and / or multi-sensor technology in combination with one / several autonomous robots.
