How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Disassembly is the first operation in the remanufacture, repair and recycling of products that have reached the end of their service life. Both productivity and flexibility should be considered when using robots to carry out disassembly due to the complexities associated with the products returned for remanufacturing. Human-robot collaboration is a...
Disassembly is a core procedure in remanufacturing. Disassembly is currently carried out mainly by human operators. It is important to reduce the labor content of disassembly through automation, to make remanufacturing more economically attractive. Threaded fastener removal is one of the most difficult disassembly tasks to be fully automated. This...
Human–robot collaborative disassembly is an approach designed to mitigate the effects of uncertainties associated with the condition of end-of-life products returned for remanufacturing. This flexible semi-autonomous approach can also handle unpredictability in the frequency and numbers of such returns as well as variance in the remanufacturing pro...
When considered in two-dimensional space, a cylindrical peg being withdrawn from a clearance-fit hole can exhibit one of four contact states: no contact, one-point contact, two-point contact and line contact. Jamming and wedging can occur during the two-point contact. Effective control of the two-point contact region can significantly reduce resist...
