Flexible communication network in the field of industrial production systems integrated in company operations to develop competitiveness in mfg. Methods/design, mfg.Systems/ technology and organisation/human resource development.
Friction stir welding (fsw) will be applied to a range of materials/be researched to achieve high welding speeds in increased joint thickness. Processes will be industrialised for real components and applied in commercial production.
To develop a new method for the manufacturing of complex-shaped functional prototyopes, based on the optimized combination of rapid prototyping with conventional and innovative finishing techniques, in order to divide cost and lead time by 2.
Development of a new prototype of high cadence laser welding system for short stitches substituting resistance spots for 3d automotive components.
A latest generation urban traffic control system is being developed, with high performance and composed of adaptive, dynamic autocalibration, expertise, and artificial vision modules.
Industry-driven cooperative r & d programme for maintaining european leadership in software-intensive systems (in which software represents a significant segment in system functionality, system development cost & risk, system dev. Time).
Kb i electric-hybrid is a project involving the full conceptual and technological development of a new urban recollector truck, characterised by a series of highly innovative features, including its motor, batteries and even the very dimensions.
To develop a new generation of smart hydrostatic bearings, combining ferrofluids and active valves with intelligent control strategies. The research will address ferrofluids, valves and sensors.
There are two main challenges: 1. To become sustainable by reducing resource consumption, managing transport and utility networks in a sustainable way, reducing environmental and man-made impacts, improving safety and security and protecting cultural heritage; 2. To become a demand-driven sector.
The aim of the project is the development, optimisation and validation of new technology for aluminium high pressure die casting intended for the manufacturing of structural components where there are high tightness requirements.
