Intelligent network-enabled Devices (“NETDEVs”) for fast ramp-up

10.08.2015

The vision of I-RAMP³ is to enable the European manufacturing industry towards smart manufacturing systems in conventional production by providing solutions for significant reduction of time and efforts during the setup and re-configuration of production plants. We developed intelligent devices, sensors and actuators having capabilities for plug'n produce and self-optimization integrated in a large communication and negotiation network.

The partners of the ‘Factories of the Future’ project I-RAMP³ invite you to their final demonstration event from the 22nd - 23rd September 2015 in Harderwijk (the Netherlands) in which the impressive results will be demonstrated to the public!

The vision of I-RAMP³ is to enable the European manufacturing industry towards smart manufacturing systems in conventional production by providing solutions for significant reduction of time and efforts during the setup and re-configuration of production plants. We developed intelligent devices, sensors and actuators having capabilities for plug'n produce and self-optimization integrated in a large communication and negotiation network.

What you can expect:
- Live and hands-on I-RAMP3 technology demonstration in three real industrial setups (robotic handling and welding cell, servo press application and assembly machine)
- Industry-proven solutions for plug'n product devices such as robots, servo presses, welding controls; various wired and wireless actuators&sensors, MES, as well as production optimization
- Talks and discussions with the project partners and experts from the field of advanced manufacturing
- Time to discuss your individual use cases, how can the solution be implemented in your environment or scientific discussions on the approaches and future activities
- Company tour at the host AWL Techniek and evening program in the nice city of Harderwijk, Netherlands

The event is free of charge but requires prior registration.
Don't wait too long with your registration! Seat capacity is limited (first come, first served). Registration will close on 1st of September 2015.
For further information about I-RAMP3 or your registration, please visit the website at http://www.i-ramp3.eu or contact Mrs. Eileen Ridders (ridders@steinbeis-europa.de , 0049 721 935 19 134)

About the project:

I-RAMP³ proposes the transformation of conventional production equipment into Network-enabled Devices (NETDEVs) which form the building blocks of a heterogeneous production network. NETDEVs are able to adopt themselves to varying production setup and production conditions by negotiating with each other on optimal configuration. This holistic approach enables fast component integration and exchange as well as rapid adaption of the entire manufacturing system on changing customer demands.

Steinbeis-Europa-Zentrum assisted the coordinator Harms&Wende in writing the proposal and during the contract negotiations in Brussels and is now, as project partner, responsible for the management of knowledge as well as administrative and financial project management. It also assumes the clarification of intellectual property, exploitation of research results and training for the consortium.

Project duration: 10/2012 – 09/2015
Countries involved: Germany, France, Greece, Netherlands, Portugal, and Hungary

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
