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: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
