I'M AN ORIGINAL CATCHPHRASE
Discover our facilities and activities
SAM XL is a unique facility for experimenting with smart advanced manufacturing on real-size robots. We develop innovative hardware and software and make robots smarter with AI.
We strongly believe that innovation is driven by dedicated work of individuals, which all have their own way of learning and pursuing goals. At SAM XL we want to maximize the freedom of innovation by providing an open infrastructure, so that data is accessible and available when and wherever: you will not find ‘black-boxes’ at SAM XL. Speeding up innovation through collaboration is our passion, and we are committed to protecting the core IP of our partners.
Pushing the boundaries of manufacturing
Define your project
What is your technical challenge? It often is difficult to define a roadmap to automation. Our engineers know where the technical challenges lie, and have experience with solving them.
Identifying funding opportunities
As a TU Delft fieldlab we have access to funding dedicated to research and technology innovation.
Executing projects together
By means of our on-site infrastructure and software libraries, we develop and validate automated manufacturing systems.
Teaching you the necessary skill
Our experts help you with developing the required skills needed to speed up your innovation.
SAM XL is located on the TU Delft campus, close to the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering.
Our facility is a 2000 m2 research lab, with different robot cells and automation labs. SAM XL brings you at the centre of the vibrant Delft start-up community and the talented student body of Delft University of Technology, The Hague University of Applied Sciences and InHolland.
Our entire collection of robots is not only top of the range, but also capable of communicating with the outside world. They cover a wide range of payloads and ranges and all have the ability to output real-time data for monitoring purposes. Equipped with models and sensors capable of real-time, high-speed, path and task planning.
Ideally suitable for developing, demonstrating and validating Artificial Intelligence for the manufacturing industry. Both the robot's own programming software as well as the ROS industrial middleware platform can be used to put our intelligent manufacturing systems into motion.

Masterclasses and training
An important part of being part of the SAM XL community is learning the right skills needed to improve your automation process. At the SAM XL premises, training and masterclasses are facilitated by our RoboAcadamy. Please look at their website for upcoming training events.
NDT & Robotics for composite materials
Interested in Non Destructive Testing (NDT) of materials? One of many applications of robotics is Non Destructive Testing (NDT). In collaboration with RoboAcademy, our Technology Partner Tiat Europe is hosting a starter course that will allow participants to get a basic understanding of the most common NDT methods.
Currently, there are no new classes available.
