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.

Sustainability and Competiveness: New technologies to provide indicators of economic, environmental and social performances

In close cooperation with various regional companies, CRIT is organising an open seminar on November 16 to discuss the impact as well as potential benefits of new technologies when it comes to corporate social responsibility and competitiveness.

The seminar will approach sustainabiilty integration within companies’ strategy, with particular focus on how Innovation and Key Enabling Technologies can contribute to it. Therefore, both of these assist decision makers monitor in real time operation fluxes and performances, so as to improve the quality of decisions, making competiveness and Corporate Social Responsibility fully compatible.

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.



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).
