Project description:

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is here, are we ready?

Companies across the globe are digitally transforming as they are challenged to improve business processes and develop new capabilities and business models. 4IR technology patent applications are on the rise, Industry 4.0 ambitions are high, manufacturing and manufacturing technologies do well, spending on the Internet of Things in industrial markets in 2018 looks promising and the list goes on. The so-called fourth industrial revolution is of course not just a matter of technology. It is also a matter of cooperation between European regions! But while large companies are anticipating the changes arising from the digital revolution in the production and value creation process, SMEs are struggling to embrace the Industry 4.0 revolution. The uptake of advanced manufacturing solutions is still a challenge to SMEs: only one in five manufacturing companies have already used advanced manufacturing solutions. Partners from regions across Europe have decided to join forces to exchange experience on how policies related to Structural Funds can unlock the full potential of Industry 4.0, fully convinced that the success of digital transformation will greatly depend on the SMEs, which feels in need of more practical support.

SMEs4I4.0 project is born to establish a common basis for policy learning among its members to overcome fragmentation of Industry 4.0 solutions and their enabling potential by dealing with main challenges hampering their diffusion into the European Union ecosystem. It is therefore key to bring together and to connect best capabilities across the EU as to foster the development, upscale, and commercialization but also diffusion of Industry 4.0 solutions – whether these are new technologies, products, services, business models, etc.

The time has come to implement Industry 4.0, let’s cooperate!

TECOS's role:

Schnell zu einem präzisen 3D-Modell der Schneidevorrichtung zur Fertigung der Ersatzstücke

Schnell zu einem präzisen 3D-Modell der Schneidevorrichtung zur Fertigung der Ersatzstücke

Ein Kunde musste den abgenutzten Rotor mit Messern erneuern, für den es keine Dokumente und kein 3D-Modell gab. Mit einem präzisen 3D-Scannen des Originals und mit der Fertigung des funktionalen CAD-Modells wurden genaue Daten zur Fertigung des Ersatzrotors und der Messer gewonnen.

Vorhersage der Deformationen am thermoplastischen Ölfiltergehäuse nach dem Spritzguss

Vorhersage der Deformationen am thermoplastischen Ölfiltergehäuse nach dem Spritzguss

Der Kunde sah bei der Werkzeugentwicklung etwaige übermäßige Biegung des Spritzgussprodukts bei der Abkühlung (Werkstoff PA66 mit 30% der Glasfaser) vorher. Mit der Spritzgusssimulation wurden die Deformationen vorhergesehen und das Problem wurde erfolgreich gelöst.

Analyse des Tiefziehens von Blech in einer Phase

Analyse des Tiefziehens von Blech in einer Phase

Für das dargestellte Beispiel sah der Auftraggeber nur eine Phase vorher, aber es gab Zweifel in Bezug auf die Fehler beim Tiefziehen. Mit der Analyse wurden die Zweifel entkräftet.

Mit Moldflow und Abaqus zu den präzisen FEM-Festigkeitsberechnungen

Mit Moldflow und Abaqus zu den präzisen FEM-Festigkeitsberechnungen

Wir führten eine Vergleichsstudie zwischen der experimentell gemessenen Tragfähigkeit des behandelten Produkts und der Vorhersage der FEM-Festigkeitsberechnung unter Berücksichtigung der tatsächlichen Faserorientierung aus.
