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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
