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: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
