part streaming assembly

This is about sreaming parts along a mobile shape changing path to a manipuators end effector where the streamed parts are finally assembled.

  • The path can be made out of stiff and rigid sections (micro-, meso-, and macroscale)
  • The path can be soft curved shaped (meso-, and macroscale) – Related: Emulated elasticity


If there is also assembly happening along the way of the transport then we have:
