Objectives and Approach

The objective of this project was to demonstrate the feasibility of holographic labelling techniques for automatic identification in a computerised industrial environment. A system based on holographic labels will have the following advantages:

The programme included the following tasks:

The applicability for CIM was demonstrated, within a real environment, in a tool identification system for the computer-integrated manufacture of mechanical parts.

Exploitation

The project partners are well placed to exploit the results of the project. Following internal experimentation with the system in one partner's own production facilities, the system's components are expected to be exploited commercially within five years of the completion of the project.
