Abstract: Increasing costs for global transportation and mass production, coupled with an increasing demand for customised products makes the requirement for local fabrication solutions increasingly important. The CassaMobile concept aims to provide the local, flexible and environmentally friendly production of highly customised parts. The production system is based on a truly modular architecture allowing rapid adaptation to new requirements. A comprehensive pool of interchangeable process modules provides free configuration of the process chain to suit specific product requirements. This includes modules such as Additive Manufacturing (AM), CNC-milling, automated assembly and cleaning which enables continuous production of one-of-a-kind products. The CassaMobile concept is supported by an easy-to-use human-machine-interface and software for the direct manufacturing of custom designed product, therefore making the system cost-effective for end-users, operators and engineers. All of these components are designed to be embedded within a shipping container which can be easily transported and deployed wherever required. CassaMobile is co-funded by European Union and the consortium consists of eleven research and industrial partners from six different European countries. Loughborough University’s task within the CassaMobile project is to focus on adapting and optimising the selected AM process for integration within the CassaMobile environment, including hardware adaptation and in-process inspection.
