Beschreibung: The miniature pipeless plant was built at the Process Dynamics and Operations Group in the
scope of the European research project MULTIFORM. Instead of using complex pipe layouts, the
transport of the raw and intermediate materials is carried out in mobile vessels using wireless
controlled vehicles, so called Automated Guided Vehicles or AGVs. The miniature plant
produces multi‐layered, colored chalk cylinders. The process steps are executed sequentially at
different, fixed processing stations. Each color layer is produced in three different steps:
(1) Dosing of different liquid colors at different color stations
(2) Adding of gypsum and blending in a mixing station
(3) Hardening of the chalk in a storage station
The goal of this project group is to first improve and then integrate the control modules of the
pipeless plant which are responsible for motion control, routing, scheduling and docking. The
result of this project will be used for creating a new DYN Experiment for the next summer
semester for Automation and Robotics study program.
