Research overview:
Experiment and research on the automatic assembly of large-scale structure are being conducted. In 1996, an automatic truss beam assembly machine with a gravity balance mechanism was constructed, and a 1/3-scale truss beam for SPS2000 was assembled. The internal frictional force of the machine was extremely high. The fluctuation of the force due to assembly error was higher than the effect of gravity. In 1997, a device was constructed to automatically assemble aluminum pipes for truss beams. An end effecter using a pneumatic drive source was examined.
