Using Vision, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Augmented Reality in an Industrial Environment

Wednesday 22nd May 12:30 - 12:45

Aluro is a leading company in the development of “Thermal break assembly machines”.

By focusing on innovation and R&D over the past 25 years, Aluro developed superior technology for Thermal Break Assembly, using PA strips.

Aluroller EVO was the pioneering machine, using 3-in-1 technology and allows to knurl, insert strips and to assemble architectural aluminium profiles 1 run with only 2 operators, a minimum changeover time and no waste due to quality issues.

More automation and a better-quality management are critical to continue the development of the ‘Thermal Break Market’.

The assembly process has always been labor intensive and quality largely depends on the operators running the assembly line.

The Aluroller EVO tackles these difficulties, by using individually driven pairs of crimping disks, for faster changeovers times, more flexibility in design and improved quality management.

During the assembly process, the profile is clamped in and supported by the beam, using 2 tons of pressure, preventing any deformation of the extrusion to happen during the assembly process.

Adaptive crimping and knurling technology anticipate to extrusion tolerances and ensures a consistent shear strength and output quality.

This technology is widely adopted by the European architectural aluminium industry and gained in market share due to increasing operator-costs and increasing complexity of the design of architectural profiles.


Industry 4.0

Today, Aluro is convinced we need to take it a step further to simplify the assembly process.

The integration of Industry 4.0 in the assembly process will contribute creating an environment with reduced risk for human errors.

Integrated vision systems to scan the strips and extrusions before assembly, to check for mistakes and verify the exact dimensions for extrusion tolerances.

The same ‘vision system’ will contribute to fully automate thermal break assembly

The machine will no longer require human intelligence to anticipate to imperfections or to set-up the machine.

Consequently, Robots can be used for loading and unloading of the extrusions and also the strip insertion will become fully automated.

As a final result, thermal break assembly will become a streamlined production process which requires less skills from the operators and at much higher efficiency.
