(Physically simulate an optimised and customisable production line remotely)

Uni-Form is such a dedicated pilot production line, which enables the processing parameters generated in Tailor be realised and verified through the automated, high accuracy production trials. It consists of four main sub-systems: the furnace, forming tools, conveyor and incubation chamber to duplicated the heating, forming and heat treatment processes involved in sheet metal forming. Equipped with a powerful conductive heating facility, a maximum temperature of 600°C and a fast heating rate up to 100°C/s could be implemented. Also, the position accuracy of the conveyor system can achieve as high as 0.5mm. In development
