ROBOTIC ARM HUMAN-MACHINE INTERFACE FOR LASER SHOCK PEENING APPLICATIONS

Abstract

The HiLASE Centre is equipped with a Laser Shock Peening station (LSP). LSP is a surface enhancing technique and it is used to prolong the fatigue life of metallic components. Part of the station is a FANUC M-20iA/20M 6-axis industrial robotic arm equipped with an R-30iB controller. The robotic arm is used to handle the LSP samples In order to facilitate the utilisation of the LSP station at the HiLASE centre for untrained operators, a human-machine interface (HMI) for the station's industrial robotic arm is being developed. This project aims to determine what type of HMI is the most suitable for the given application and to implement this solution.
