International Engineering Fair Brno MSV 2023

October 10 | 08:00 October 13 | 17:00 UTC+1

RICAIP is one of the main partners and technology drivers of the joint booth together with the National Centre for Industry 4.0 and its partners. This years’s main topic is “The Journey Towards Successful 21st Century Company” within the Digital Factory section.

RICAIP will showcase its role as the innovation infrastructure provider for manufacturing together with the National Centre for Industry 4.0 and key technology partners, including Siemens, T-Mobile, DEL, SICK, Česká spořitelna and also EIT Manufacturing. A real robotic demonstrator on flexible modular production developed by RICAIP Testbed Prague will be the core of the exhibition accompanied with several supplementary demonstrations of the use of newest digital technologies. There will be also accompanied programme in a form of transport to and guided tours in the RICAIP Testbed Brno for those interested.

Place: Hall F, Stand 201: Digital Factory – Exhibition Grounds Brno
Date: 10 – 13 October 2023 | 9:00 – 17:00

The need to go digital is clear, but how to do it? How can you make the most of your company’s existing potential? Visitors to the The Journey Towards Successful 21st Century Company exhibition, which will be presented at the International Engineering Fair in cooperation with the resesarch workplace of the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics, and Cybernetics Czech Technical University in Prague (CIIRC CTU) – RICAIP Testbed for Industry 4.0 – and the ecosystem aroung the National Centre for Industry 4.0, in particular companies Siemens, T-Mobile, Česká spořitelna, DEL, SICK, and the European Innovation Community EIT Manufacturing, will find answers to these questions. On more than two hundred square meters, we will present solutions for efficient, sustainable and innovative industrial production, which no successful company of the 21st century can do without.

Technology Showcase: Real Demonstrators

Flexible Modular Production

Second-life Batteries
The intelligent robotic system is able to autonomously disassemble several types of electric batteries. This is a demonstration of flexible manufacturing that easily adapts to product change. The robotic and other programs that perform a given manufacturing task are not fixed, but respond to changing conditions. The movements of the robot are assigned based on the ontological description of the different batteries.

Monitoring of Consumption

Closer to efficiency and sustainability: real-time monitoring of energy and compressed air consumption.

Simulated line in VR

Second-life Batteries
The real robotic battery disassembly line has a digital twin, thanks to which the same operations can be simulated and operated in virtual reality via a single MES control system. The virtual line is also controlled by a virtual PLC. The system is connected to the edge device and common operating parameters are displayed in real time.

Robotic Mobile Tapping System

AR Training Workplace

The HoloLens connected to the real robot line system over a 5G network can control the robot or display operational data. Practical applications include training workers or assisting them in controlling the robot.
