Using Industrial Robots to Complete Accurate Manufacturing Applications
Industrial robots have come a long way from the simple pick-and-place operations on production lines and they are now being introduced into an increasing number of applications. Their versatility, large working volume, robustness, and high repeatability, along with their low relative cost makes them well suited to the repetitive and destructive environments of production facilities.Industrial robot technology has evolved significantly with new methodologies as well as new capabilities. Robots were traditionally programmed by teaching the robot every point required for a process. With modern software programming tools, the path generation can be completed offline, away from the shop floor. Full virtual simulation allows any issues to be picked up before the process is run on the real cell. This has resulted in significantly reduced programming times and therefore an increase in the complexity of the tasks that can be achieved while removing the programming task from the critical path of a new robot install. However, the software resources available only solve half the issue. Industrial robot hardware has inherent errors that limit the applications they can complete. These include inaccurate methods for identifying coordinate systems and work offsets, error stacking from the robot joints, response to applied forces and axis reversals. This talk aims to look at the software and hardware solutions that can reduce or completely remove these sources of error for applications such as milling, polishing, and non-contact metrology.

Using Revit to Deliver Large Residential Projects: Circus West at Battersea Power Station Case Study
This presentation will look in detail at how a complex large-scale residential building can be delivered using Revit, with an understanding of overall modelling strategy, data management, and drawing output workflow. The Circus West project represents that first phase of the Battersea Power Station masterplan, and comprises of 752 apartments over 17 storeys, above a mixed-use podium. The building has a 350-metre-long footprint which wraps around the Power Station building, and is articulated as 2 stacked tapering glazed ribbons. In response to the original client brief, the building has a large number of residential typologies, with a mix of 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments, townhouses, and penthouses. The project was transitioned into Revit in 2013, with the intention to build a model for the output of GA plan scale construction drawings, scheduling and coordination with the structures and M&E consultant team. The project was not only the largest residential scheme that the practice had delivered to date, but also the first to be produced using Revit, and as a result, initial strategies had to be quickly developed and implemented in order to construct the model. The design work was split between the practiceÍs 2 offices, with the interior fit out of the residential element development by the Manchester office team, and Shell, Core and Podium developed by the London office team. The development of the interior fit out packages for the residential element proved to be the most challenging area of the project to set up in Revit, due to the large quantity of apartment types (over 200 unique layouts). In order to minimise file sizes, and repetition of modelling, a systems of nested Revit models and arrangement files had to be set up to enable drawing sheet output. The level of detail in the apartment models required careful consideration to strike a balance between information required for outputs and minimal file sizes. As part of this, a strategy for the use of families for complex interior fit out elements the within apartment models was developed. Following the BPS project, there are many lessons learnt that can be applied to future large residential Revit projects. This includes developing a strategy for how a project with numerous apartment types can be broken down into manageable elements, with an allowance for flexibility in the set up as the project progresses.
