OPTICAL EQUIPMENT FOR MEASURING DEFORMATION OF MACHINE TOOL COMPONENTS

JAN KOUBEK, STEPAN CHLADEK, JIRI SVEDA, IVAN DIVIS
Keywords: horizontal boring machine | laser beam | calibration | Compensation | Measuring | deviations | deformation | geometry

This paper describes the possibilities of measuring deformation of machine tool components based on monitoring change in the optical beam path. Deformation is evaluated relatively between an optical beam source and a sensing element. The great advantage lies in the fact that an active sensing element can be replaced by a passive optical element. No electronics needs to be installed in the measured place (…)

HUMAN – ROBOT COLLABORATION IN INDUSTRY

ALES VYSOCKY, PETR NOVAK
Keywords: collaborative robot | Industrial Robot | industry 4.0 | HRC | MRK

Human – Robot Collaboration is a new trend in the field of industrial and service robotics as a part of the strategy Industry 4.0. Robots and the strategy itself are known under the German acronym MRK (Mensch Roboter Kollaboration) or the English acronym HRC (Human Robot Collaboration). The main goal of this innovative strategy is to build up an environment for safety collaboration between humans and ro (…)

ADVANCES IN SUSTAINABLE ENERGY EFFICIENT MANUFACTURING SYSTEM

BRANISLAV MICIETA, JAROMIR MARKOVIC, VLADIMIRA BINASOVA
Keywords: methodology | system | advanced industrial engineering | sustainable production | reconfiguration | energy efficient manufacturing

This paper deals with the sustainable energy efficient manufacturing with application of advanced industrial techniques and new methodical approach to advance energy efficiency measures. This integration represents a sustainable development so that more effective use of natural and energy resources is achieved, energy costs are reduced and energy efficiency of manufacturing processes are created. The en (…)

STUDY OF NON-AUDITORY EFFECTS OF NOISE

MICHAELA BALAZIKOVA, MARIANNA TOMASKOVA, MARTINA DULEBOVA
Keywords: non-auditory noise effects | auditory noise effects | risk | noise

It is generally known that long-term and repeated exposure to noise has a negative impact on the sense of hearing. However, less is known about the fact that not only auditory organs are affected by noise. Research has shown that noise has effects on the entire organism, especially central and autonomic nervous system. Peterson et al. (1981) conducted a study using monkeys to explore the effects of long (…)

THE MECHANICAL DESIGN AND REALIZATION OF THE OMNIDIRECTIONAL MOBILE ROBOT ODIN

MATEJ GALA, VACLAV KRYS, TOMAS KOT
Keywords: Odin | testing | trajectory | wheel | Robot | omnidirectional | mobile

This article describes the process of mechanical designing for an omnidirectional mobile robot Odin. It provides an explanation of the relation between a mobile robotic stair climbing system with shaped wheels and omnidirectional wheels, which are used together in a combined locomotive system. Only a conception study of the whole system is presented. Testing of mechanical parameters and driving abilitie (…)

TRANSFORMATION OF PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS IN TERMS OF A MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

STEFAN MARKULIK, ROBERT KOZEL
Keywords: product development | Requirements | management systems

Organizations make an effort to meet their customer’s requirements related to the products they offer. Only satisfied customers can help the company to generate profit, and profit is an important factor for the further development of the organization. The organization´s development can involve, for instance, investing in employees by creating ergonomic and safe workplaces and social environment, develop (…)
