Demonstraing and testing smart digitalisation for sustainable human-centred automation in production

Purpose and goal

The project will evaluate and validate new user-adapted and digital solutions for information sharing, work instructions, and resource planning in manufacturing contexts. An existing testbed environment, Chalmers Smart Industry Lab,  will be utilized by the consortium to test increased efficiency and flexibility of implemented information and production systems.

Results and expected effects

Expected industrial impacts are e.g. reduced cycle-time; operator empowerment; reduced time from idea to implementation of digital solutions integrating hard- and software solutions.

Approach and implementation

The different strategies and technologies for digitalisation will be tested in the lab as a first step, in pilot plant with company adjustments as a second step and the final step will be to test the chosen solutions within the production environment. The demonstrators in each projects will also be used for education for a broader range of companies outside the consortium and also for education of engineers at Chalmers.

Tailored Tool Surfaces for Robust and Sustainable Hot Stamping

2015-2018

2030, Resource-efficient production

Tooling constitutes a significant part in the economical investment of the hot stamping process. Significant benefits in production economy and environmental benefits can be attained by improving the tribological performance in hot forming operations of automotive components. The main idea of this project is to create tailored tool surfaces on dies made from cheaper and easier to manufacture tool steel for the hot stamping of ultra-high strength steels.

PADOK – Study Visit to India 2016

2016-2016

2030, FFI

With globalization and other megatrends as demographic changes and climate change, more knowledge is needed regarding production in an international perspective. PADOK Study Visit in India 2016 have given an increased knowledge regarding how production is conducted in India, some of the challenges producing companies in that region is facing and how Swedish companies interested in investing in production in India could act to establish themselves in the region.
