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, lightweight 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 aims 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. TNO, PROSTEP and the Engineering Department “Enzo Ferrari” will help us to meet these challenges.

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).

Innovation management (Italy): Topics: Human Robot Collaboration, Industry 4.0

The working table: Innovation management (Italy): Topics: Human Robot Collaboration, Industry 4.0 was a continuation of the benchmark among participating companies technology portfolio and innovation management practices in the field of Robotics and Industry 4.0, for which three participants (UNIMORE; PILZ and DATALOGIC) had already met in Ostfildern, Baden-Wurttenberg, on July 23rd 2017. One former participant (GAIOTTO) was not present since they decided not to go on with the action, whereas another company (IMA) was introduced, and through this it became possible to discuss a possible use case for an innovative HRC application in the field of packaging machinery. UNIMORE facilitated the discussion providing insight on the latest research trends in artificial intelligence and object recognition for robotics.

The possibility to submit a proposal for Horizon 2020, in the topic of Human-Robot collaboration, has been further discussed, together with IMA.

Participating companies belonged to two different Central European regions, i.e. Baden-Wurttenberg (PILZ) and Emilia-Romagna (DATALOGIC, IMA).

AGENDA

11.00 Pilz Arrival in Bologna, discussion in Datalogic: wrap-up on previous meeting, further R&D common topics/issues discussed

13.00 Lunch

14.00 Transfer to IMA, IMA presentation and factory tour (problems encountered when implementing HRC on the factory floor, security standards, end users requirements…)

16.00 Discussion on IMA-PILZ-DATALOGIC further collaboration possibilities (FOF-02-2018 Call for Proposal)

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”, is being organized by t2i in Treviso on Thu 23, Nov 2017.  The event presents an acosystem of competencies able to stimulate unconventional business models: from data to sensor, from idea to solution, from prototype to automation.

 

Abstract

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 will explain 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 will also showcase 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.

Full Professor at Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia

Luigi Enrico Golzio

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.
