“To reboot the American dream and reinvent manufacturing, factories need to be digital and adaptable. Factory infrastructure must be almost infinitely design-flexible, modular, and adaptive. The factory must adapt with the market and concurrently drive market innovation.”
– Executive of American Automotive Manufacturer
DIELESS ROBOTIC SHEET FORMING
Robotic sheet forming is the first process enabled by our platform. Using material- and geometry-agnostic technology, our platform outperforms traditional sheet forming methods that rely on custom molds or dies. Our Dieless robotic sheet forming can reduce the time to produce your first part from 50 weeks to just hours, even minutes. This process eliminates the cost of designing and manufacturing dies, which in traditional manufacturing can cost up to $1M per design.
Similar to how an experienced craftsman uses a hammer to create sheet metal parts, Machina Labs robots use an extensive array of AI-driven sensors to gather data and incrementally manipulate sheet metal to form the parts. We gather data for every part we run to create a digital twin with all the relevant process information. This provides the most accurate process characterization and part qualification information for every single unit made.
