F-FAS - Fully Flexyble Assembly Systems
Robotic workcell for heat exchanger automatic assembly
Energytronics: Mechatronics for Altermative Energies
AHI: Automatic Handling Infrastructure for eye-glasses components
Telescopic handlers stability control system
AutoMap: Leather defect detection automated system
LaScan: Laser Triangulation Scanner for Digitizing Shoe Lasts
PlasCoat: Plastic coated components superficial defect detection
FORMS: three-dimensional optical scanner for orthopedics
