Design for Robotic Disassembly

Research output: Contribution to conference without publisher/journalPaperResearchpeer-review


This study envisions a unified paradigm for design for automated disassembly. The goal is to integrate disassembly insights related to precious material recovery with the design phase for sustainable lifecycle management. Targeting plastic products with embedded electronics, the collaboration between design and robotic engineers aims to program a robot for disassembly for the LEGO® motor (45603) as demonstration, emphasizing a disassembly map as a vital tool. By considering the limitations and strengths of robots, this research pioneers a design for disassembly framework.
