Exxelia will integrate a cobot into its manufacturing process
In recent days, artificial intelligence has been at the center of the news, and will soon be deployed in Exxelia's production workshops, with the integration of technology related to cobots.
The cobot is a collaborative robot designed to work hand-in-hand with operators. This technology coupled with artificial intelligence (I.A) offers a multitude of advantages including:
- Quality improvement: The cobots are equipped with high performance sensors and integrated quality control systems, which allow 100% thorough visual inspection, and guarantee a high level of quality, while adapting to the movements of the operators (no occupational safety risk).
- Flexibility: Cobots are lightweight and adaptable. This versatility allows them to occupy different positions depending on the needs of the moment.
- Safety: Cobots are designed to be used in pairs with Exxelia operators and can therefore protect them from dangerous or arduous tasks, which greatly improves the quality of life at work (reduction of repetitive gestures; positive impact on musculoskeletal disorders ).
- Optimization of operator time: Cobots take care of low value-added tasks and let the operator focus on high-value tasks, which values the contribution of operators.
By collaborating with operators, cobots can improve production quality and accuracy, while ensuring their safety.
Industry 4.0 is changing the way businesses operate and the way products are designed, manufactured and delivered. Exxelia is convinced of the importance of Industry 4.0 and is positioning itself to be at the forefront of this transformation.
As a company specializing in the design and manufacture of critical electronic components for industrial applications, Exxelia pays particular attention to maintaining its extensive know-how. Exxelia uses state-of-the-art technologies to ensure the high level of quality that the applications the group serves cannot be without. The group pays particular attention to the coexistence of robotization with the mastery of manual processes held by operators to continue to offer customers the highest quality products, while remaining competitive.
Adopting this technology will allow Exxelia to maintain its leadership position in its industry, while improving quality, accuracy, operator safety and production efficiency.
EXXELIA, A EUROPEAN SOURCE OF HIGH Q FACTOR DIELECTRIC RESONATORS
Operating frequencies in wireless communications have shifted towards high frequency band and thus frequencies higher than 1 Ghz are now commonly utilized. In addition, the microwave frequency spectrum becoming severely crowded and sub-divided into many different frequency bands, designers are systematically looking for resonators giving them a narrow bandwidth with smaller size. Dielectric resonators are designed to replace resonant cavities in microwave functions such as filters and oscillators. Exxelia Temex, daughter company of Exxelia Group, has developed with support of ESA and CNES, a new high-end dielectric material, E7000 series, designed for high-end filters where high Q factor is requested. E7000 is Ba-Mg-Ta materials based that combines an ultra-high Q factor and the possibility to get all the temperature coefficients upon request. E7000 provides high-performance requested for space use in the frequency range 5 to 32 GHz, and guarantees up to Qxf > 250 000 at 10GHZ. Typical applications: Satellite multiplexing filter devices, radio links for communication systems (LMDS),
