  • Industrial applications in different sectors including aerospace and defence, automotive, packaging and MEMS.
  • Metrology and quality control
  • Metrology assisted large scale assembly
  • Novel system integration approaches/techniques
  • Parts sorting and feeding
  • Precision joining operations
  • Processes and systems for disassembly
  • Product key characteristics and tolerances in assembly
  • Robotics and robot applications for assembly
  • Standardisation for precision assembly including grippers, handling, tooling and application software
