Title:
A Flexible Fixture and Reconfiguration Process for the Cognitive Machine Shop 
Abstract:
To enable the autonomous fabrication of individual and customized parts, the flexibility provided by the planning system and the control system must be supported on the hardware level. To enable this degree of flexibility on the hardware level in the area of machining, an approach to the reconfiguration of fixtures for machine tools has been developed. By using a vice with jaws that can be exchanged with sufficient precision by a handling robot, the fixture can be changed to allow the fabricatio...    »
