Complex structures, geometries and scale
COROMA copes witha a series of applications where workpiece position, size and even flexibility are limitations for a successful automatised operation of the robotic system that performs the manufactiuring process.
Aerospace, Energy and Naval sectors give the project a wide range of scenarios where the robotic system must show adaptability: automatic finishing grinding of metalic surfaces, thin walls machining, grinding of complex metalic rack weldings, sanding of composite workpieces whose position must be previously localized, or nozzel inspection are the some examples of the demanding tasks COROMA must fface.
Regarding adaptability, the system is able to generate the operation trajectories needed for each comp ...
- Novel materials
- Customised products
- Resource efficient, sustainable products
The same characteristics that allow COROMA to reduce the lead time provide the system with a grater flexibility. The capablilty to localice the workpiece and to adapt to certain extent the operation to its specific geometry alloews the system to transform worpiees with differetn sizes and geometry.
In addition to this, the capability to learn from previous operations provides an extra in its flexibility.
COROMA system reduces the time of operation, through the use of well defined functional modules able to address different manufacturing. Furthermore, it reduces the time devoted to worpiece set-up.
Clear examples are the end user main machining scenarios, where COROMA system must automatically find, localice, and identify the workpiece, automatically generatig the trajectories for the specific operation.

Occupational safety and health
COROMA robotic system carries out operations potentially dangerous for human health:
- repetitive tasks,
- tasks in difficult-to-reach areas of big workpieces,
- long-last machining operations on unhealthy materials
On the other hand, safety fuctionality (while navigating or working near an operators) allows a non risky interation with humans.
