DIGILOG – DIGITAL AND PHYSICAL TESTBED FOR LOGISTIC OPERATIONS IN THE PRODUCTION

Purpose and goal

DigiLog builds on three existing testbeds that will be interconnected via a digital model and simulates a typical logistics working environment. The combination of digital and physical models creates new opportunities for system innovation. The aims are to contribute to learning about system thinking & innovation and to improve logistics systems in industry. It allows experimenting with different configuration of components and their interconnection, allowing investigation forms of HMI and HRI interaction. It will support a step-wise transition towards digitised logistics.

Results and expected effects

The experimentation with different configuration of components (different transport vehicles e.g. forklift till AGV, level of manual vs automated handling) and their interconnecting these
(using IoT) will lead to improved systemd design. The mix of physical and virtual makes it possible to export and import collected data from actuators and sensors in multiple environments identifying possible improvements at process, organisational (layouts and operational issues) levels as well as on how digitalisation technologies can support the human in executing the daily task.

Approach and implementation

The testbed is located in Södertälje south of Stockholm. In a first step (till month 3) we will define the main requirements and needs. This is followed by a deifintion of the physical and virtual components. Already at the end of month 2 it will be possible to test different technologies related to production logistics. In parallell the physical environment will be mapped and digitised, and by the end of month 18 both parts will be fully integrated. Along these activities, we will introduce a different ways of bringing material and human and/or robots together at different maturity levels.

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.

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.
