Good forecasts

For the year ended 2018 we are proud of having developed a good job and having achieved new milestones for the Andalusian aerospace and technology sector, but more importantly, it starts a new one, 2019, with the feeling that we have a very promising future ahead. Not only for our center, but for all those who participate in the aeronautical industry and the innovation environment and technological development linked to this sector, which boosts the economy in our community.

In our specific case, new horizons are opened with the participation in new European projects such as SAFEDRONE, DOMUS, RIB-AM or RIMA, all of them linked with the development and application of new technologies of unmanned systems (drones) for their integration in airspace or implementation of new advanced manufacturing systems (such as 3D printing) for the aerospace industry. Also with the organization of important events like the hosting of the II International Tournament on Emergency Service Robots of the European Robots League (ERL), which will take place in our facilities in Seville next February.

We must highlight another unprecedented milestone in Andalusia, such as the Presidency of Seville of the Community of Ariane cities for 2019, an event in which FADA-CATEC collaborates and which will mean that the city of Seville becomes the ideal showcase to demonstrate the potential of our sector and the focus of attracting investment and business opportunities to boost our companies and technology activities in the field of space, through the environment offered by the so-called New Space. This event will have a program full of activities that will also serve for the scientific dissemination of what the Space sector represents and the applications that the whole society enjoys today thanks to the development in this field.

We have, therefore, an exciting year ahead, full of good forecasts and new challenges and illusions for both the Andalusian and Spanish aerospace sector. Let us take advantage of this to continue working among all of us - industry, administrations, technological agents and social agents - to keep on growing and positioning it as one of the most relevant in the European and international environment.

Our center provides companies from the aerospace sector and other industrial fields with the opportunity to install improvements and develop innovative solutions in the manufacturing process through the application of diverse technologies and teams. Among them, in the area of Automation and Robotics, a robot cell multipurpose, whose purpose is to help companies develop technological demonstrators and their set-up, so they can be subsequently implemented in the production processes of the companies.

To strengthen this field, the Centre has a multipurpose robotic cell consisting of four industrial manipulators with the capability of operating cooperatively, just like other equipment and artificial vision systems, with laser scanning and pneumatic abilities as well as personal safety automation and mobile platforms.

The combination of different automation technologies available increases the capabilities of the industrial robots, especially in regards to their ability to adapt to their large multidud of tasks, and provides them with more flexibility in the ways which they can complete their required operations.

To know more in detail the technology and ask for an offer, you can request a visit or contact with the area of Automation and Robotics, through its director, Carlos Perez.
