Innovation management: Strategy for Additive Manufacturing Technologies

Transnational working tables have been organized on Dec 8, 2017 with companies and partners interested in additive manufacturing as follow up of AMMeeting 2017.

The meeting was a follow-up of Nuclei Open Seminar on Additive Manufacturing that was held within Additive Manufacturing Meeting in June 2017. It was a great opportunity for networking and establishing new contacts.

Nuclei Project was presented to wider audience. Also the results surveys collected during Open Seminar and Additive Manufacturing Meeting in June were presented.

During the meeting surveys were provided to participants. Open Innovation, Internet of Things and Services as well as Human-Machine Interface are topics of main interest. Most of responders stated that they are interested in taking part in other activities in projects, especially regional and international seminars.

Tips and Tricks of Additive Manufacturing

In the last decade, Additive Manufacturing (AM) represents the strongest revolutionary technology in manufacturing. This technology provides smart solutions to manufacturing issues that have so far limited the imagination in mechanical design. Design Freedom, light-weight structures and independence from economies of scale are just few of the benefits provided by AM.

However, the adoption of AM requires radical changes in approaching design and production. New concepts and rules should be introduced throughout the whole product life cycle and critical issues should be assessed to maximize its exploitation.

The seminar aimed to increase confidence in Additive Manufacturing potential and to face the challenges that still characterized these technologies, such as the creation of a continuous process between the AM process and the subtractive post-process, a secure data transfer and the new materials potential.

Industrial internet-of-things (IoT) and supply chain integration

The open seminar Industrial IOT and supply chain integration, part of the series titled Digital transformation for a human-centred industry 4.0, has been organized by t2i in Treviso on Thu 23, Nov 2017.

A key enabler of the digital transformation is the in-depth integration of IT solutions (sensors, data analysis, cloud, ...) in the whole production and logistic processes. Manufacturing companies need to merge product customization and efficient production, so industrial Internet-of-Things is a powerful mean to approach a holistic synergy of global supply chains.

Experts from international research orgs and industry players explained for example how open middleware for prototyping IoT services provide the foundation for interoperable end-to-end testing and proofs of concept (Fraunhofer FOKUS).

The event has also showcased how universities can develop innovative data-driven solutions for automation systems (Dpt of Information Engineering, University of Padova).

The access to an ‘ecosystem of competencies’ involving reliable RTD and industrial players let SMEs ramp up impact of IIoT applications and adopt unconventional business models, integrating e.g. new powerful sensors (STMicroelectronics), remote monitoring, analytics and predictive maintenance for machine tools (beanTech) and efficient Manufacturing Operations Management (Reply).

Customer orientation in digital business models and processes

The 2nd NUCLEI Workshop, organized by Cluster Mechatronik & Automation at New Elements GmbH in Nuremberg, Bavaria, gave occasion to discuss different methods and approaches in digital business models. Digitalization is on the march and is about to form our societies drastically in the years to come. Especially users of digitalized solutions in manufacturing and trade are increasingly affected by this dynamic. Many fear to miss out on this trend and lose their economic basis. While in Germany the focus is set primarily on the technology itself, US companies for example tend to combine the use of new technologies with new potential business models that can be developed in consecuence. Therefore, the topics of Customer Relation Management, Product Design, Innovation and Service Offerings become connected and create new forms of implementation and marketing strategies especially for the middle-sized sector.

Digitalisation brings many advantages to rethink and optimize manufacturing processes. Especially when looking at the customers, digital models can provide valuable data for new marketing concepts.

Project manager at Cluster Mechatronik & Automation

Alexander Schäferling

While the world becomes more and more connected, it is evermore important to observe the international activities and particular approaches of global players when tackling current issues of digitalization.
