Flanders Make
Flanders Make is the strategic research centre for the manufacturing industry. From our sites in Lommel, Leuven and Kortrijk, we stimulate open innovation through excellent research.

Our purpose: realising a top-level research network in Flanders that delivers full support to the innovation projects of manufacturing companies. This way, we want to contribute to new products and production processes that help to realise the vehicles, machines and factories of the future.

Because of our unique position between industry and research, our teams combine application and system proficiency with technological and scientific knowledge.
We focus on 4 key competences, all based on modelling and virtualisation:
1.            Decision & Control
2.            Design and optimisation
3.            Motion product specification, architecture, and validation
4.            Flexible assembly specification, architecture, and validation
 

Robotics Research Engineer

Functieomschrijving

As a robotics research engineer, you develop control strategies for assembly and explore the opportunities offered by the “state of the art” of robot & cobot applications.

Companies aspiring to transition to Industry 4.0 collaborate with Flanders Make to develop their smart factory production systems where robots can work safely alongside humans. We design and develop prototype workcells for production systems.

DEVELOP NOVEL ROBOT APPLICATIONS FOR INDUSTRY 4.0 WORKCELLS

As an expert in robot control:

  • You work together in a research team which combines expertise in software architectures, controls, sensing, and layout of workcells;
  • With the team you address “assembly” challenges for real industry cases. The operator will be supported by cobots (KUKA LBR iiwa, ...), mobile robots (KUKA KMR iiwa, ...), two-armed robots (ABB Yumi, …), logistic robots and AGVs (for transporting goods and pallets), etc.;
  • You take the lead in the control of the robots.

More concretely, you:

  • Explore the state of the art in collaborative robot applications: propose on pushing the state of the art such that it benefits the industry by improving the current solutions in terms of flexibility, productivity and safety;
  • Specify and develop the online or realtime control strategy for the robots and cobots (position control; force control, impedence control), for component handling and gripping applications (suction cup, magnetic grabber, gripping hand…);
  • Test and improve the operational functionalities (sensors, software, control strategies …).
