Five students in mechanical engineering from Denmark-based Aalborg University’s Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering have received top marks for their BSc project. The students developed a prototype of a robot-based milling solution, built on Delcam’s Power-Mill Robot programming system, for concrete company BC Industry from the nearby town of Løkken.

According to Delcam, the specific goal was to develop an automated solution to mill mould tools for production of concrete windowsills at BC Industry. Power-Mill Robot was used to generate toolpaths for an ABB robot fitted with a milling head. The software was also used to simulate the robot’s movements to prove out the program.

Professor Madsen stated that the top marks were given because the students had managed to develop from scratch a solution that was almost industry-ready.
