Development of a compact end-effector solution for being integrated into a robotic work-cell in order to automate the one-shot drilling of hybrid stacks. This end-effector must be adequate for drilling operations fulfilling the drilling specifications

Advances made in LOCOMACHS

Automated drilling using clamping force for reduced spaces has been demonstrated. The concept and functionality of the DEE will be tested in LAWiB during demonstration scenario in MTC (where TRL5 will be completed). The automation of drilling eliminati
