Eighth International Precision Assembly Seminar

Temporary free access to conference proceedings

This is a major event for international researchers in the areas of assembly processes and systems

The 8th edition of the seminar will have a specific focus on informatics and digital technologies for precision assembly.

Originally conceived by the micro-assembly community, the seminar has now grown to include a wide scope of assembly processes and applications from micro products to large aerostructures where precision, efficiency and quality are of critical importance.

The official language of the seminar is English.

The conference is fast approaching

The seminar will provide a unique opportunity to gain insight into the latest research in the subject of precision assembly technology.

Leading international researchers will present a selection of high quality papers on topics such as precision assembly processes, metrology, assembly system integration and automation, data analytics, control and communication.

The seminar is aimed at engineers, researchers and scientists working in the field of precision assembly. By combining the scientific programme with a vibrant social programme, the seminar offers an excellent opportunity to listen, confer and share ideas to build the community.
