Two German research organizations have joined forces for research projects focusing on patch-based fiber lay-up: The Institute of Materials Resource Management (MRM), Augsburg University, with focus on ceramic fiber composites and data-driven computational materials science, and the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at Augsburg University of Applied Sciences. Both universities rely on the same technology for R&D in the fields of artificial intelligence (AI) and new materials.

The technological backbone of the common research focused on AI and new materials is a SAMBA Step system from Cevotec GmbH, Unterhaching/Germany based on Fiber Patch Placement (FPP) technology. SAMBA Step systems with their flexible degree of automation are explicitly designed for prototyping and product development in R&D departments, institutes and universities. The systems feature individual robot configurations and are very flexible regarding the materials processed. They can additionally be equipped with a variety of sensors to monitor the production process. There are currently plans for an extension of the system with 12 individual sensors that feed real-time data to an AI-based analysis engine.

While the Augsburg University was responsible for setting-up the initial SAMBA Step system, the Augsburg University of Applied Sciences will take over the future expansion with a sensor-intensive automated feeding unit.

Cevotec’s system is operational from August 2021 at the newly opened building Materials Resource Management (MRM) located at Augsburg Innovationspark.
