Master-Slave robot Support Crane for Remote Handling in ITER (afstudeeropdracht)

Design a support crane for the ITER Remote Handling Master-Slave robot system.

Projectvacancy-masterslave-2

Recently, Heemskerk Innovative Technology has started to work on Remote Handling Equipment for the experimental fusion reactor ITER. Although the fusion process produces only relatively small amounts of radiation, parts of the reactor near the plasma will become ´too hot´ to handle by hand. The maintenance activities will therefore be done by remote control. The handling capabilities and logistics in the maintenance workshop (the ‘Hot Cell’) have to be carefully planned in order to keep service periods as short as possible. The Master-Slave systems therefore have to be very robust and reliable.

Assignmentvacancy-vr-3
  • Design a support crane for the ITER Remote Handling Master-Slave robot system
  • The assignment starts with a literature survey on the state of the art in crane systems
  • Then, system requirements are drafted, and various concept solutions are traded
  • The chosen solution is detailed and then main design parameters are sized with simulations
  • The assignment ends with a report (thesis) and a presentation.
What we ask
  • An enthusiastic graduate student (HBO/TU WTB, ET, TN, L&R)
  • Interested in robotics and mechatronic systems
