Abstract [en]

Manufacturing processes are subject to increasing product changes, product diversity and customisation, higher quality demands and shorter lead times, all of which are drivers for new flexible approaches to manufacturing. As a result modular and reconfigurable fixture solutions have been both researched and commercialized. One of these is the ART, “Affordable Reconfigurable Tooling” concept, which relies on an external measuring system rather than internal accuracy of all fixture parts. Traditionally for dedicated fixtures shims are often used to achieve desired position and tolerances. This paper presents the “Mini Flexapod”, a small 6 degree of freedom reconfigurable device as part of the ART concept. The Mini Flexapod is designed to eliminate shimming and therefore has a small working envelope of approximately ± 4mm. Three different designs of the Mini Flexapod are presented, together with an illustrative application case from aircraft manufacturing. Further work will be done to improve design and to develop an intuitive operator interface for adjusting the Mini Flexapod.
