Generating disassembly tasks for selective disassembly using ontology-based disassembly knowledge representation

Hui Jiang, Jianjun Yi, Xiaomin Zhu, Zhao Li

This paper aims to develop methods for generating disassembly tasks for selective disassembly. The disassembly task contains the disassembly information, namely…

Compliant assembly variation analysis of thin-walled structures based on the absolute nodal coordinate formulation

Haidong Yu, Chunzhang Zhao, Bin Zheng, Hao Wang

Thin-walled structures inevitably always have manufacturing deviations, which affects the assembly quality of mechanical products. The assembly quality directly determines…

Tolerance analysis of assemblies with sculptured components in composites materials: comparison between an analytical method and a simulation approach

Rocco Ascione, Wilma Polini

The purpose of this paper is to compare two different tools for tolerance analysis. Tolerance analysis is an important task to design and manufacture high-precision…

Assembly modelling approach for special purpose machines

Uday Hameed Farhan, Majid Tolouei-Rad, Adam Osseiran

The purpose of this paper is to develop an assembly modelling approach to be applied with a software package, to assist in the design and assembly of special purpose…

A force rendering model for virtual assembly of mechanical parts with clearance fits

QingHui Wang, Zhong-Dong Huang, JingRong Li, Jia-Wu Liu

Realistic force sensation can help operators better feel and manipulate parts for virtual assembly (VA). Moreover, for VA of mechanical parts, it is necessary to consider…

A simple assembly planner for the insertion of ring-shaped deformable objects

Ixchel G. Ramirez-Alpizar, Kensuke Harada, Eiichi Yoshida

The aim of this work is to develop a simple planner that is able to automatically plan the motion for a dual-arm manipulator that assembles a ring-shaped elastic object…


Assembly sequence planning for motion planning

Weiwei Wan, Kensuke Harada, Kazuyuki Nagata

The purpose of this paper is to develop a planner for finding an optimal assembly sequence for robots to assemble objects. Each manipulated object in the optimal sequence…

A new method of precise orientation adjustment based on matrix similarity for large-scale component

Dian Wu, Fuzhou Du

In the assembly process of the satellite, there will be multiple installation and disassembly operations for the solar wing and the main satellite body (or simulator)…

Direct teaching of industrial manipulators using current sensors

Jian-jun Yuan, Shuai Wang, Weiwei Wan, Yanxue Liang, Luo Yang, Yifan Liu

The aim of this paper is to implement direct teaching of industrial manipulators using current sensors. The traditional way to implement teaching is either to use a…

A united kinematic calibration method for a dual-machine system

Dan Zhao, Yunbo Bi, Yinglin Ke

This paper aims to propose a united kinematic calibration method for a dual-machine system in automatic drilling and riveting. The method takes both absolute and relative…

Detection and estimation of mental fatigue in manual assembly process of complex products

Hong Xiao, Yugang Duan, Zhongbo Zhang, Ming Li

This paper aims to investigate an approach for mental fatigue detection and estimation of assembly operators in the manual assembly process of complex products, with the…
