As a part of the first-stage of Ricaip teaming project, a small demonstration testbed is being built at CEITEC Brno University of Technology. It will contain both additive and subtractive machinery technologies – 3D SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) printer, and 3DOF CNC milling machine. Material and product movement is provided by means of standard and collaborative industrial manipulators, as well as omnidirectional mobile robots with Mecanum-type wheels. The control system is designed to be easy-to-extend and to be able to cooperate with other testbeds, as will be demonstrated by cooperation with Intemac company.
