Purpose and goal
The project has developed a platform that connects machining system´s capability with performance. The project also developed the existing innovative instruments (LDBB, CERS) and the concept of utilization of the machines built-in sensors that enable the identification of machine tool capability during operation like conditions. This means that companies and researchers have unprecedented opportunities to create new knowledge through the careful analysis of machines and processes physical properties. Knowledge that can be used for production and maintenance.
Expected results and effects
By using the developed CIM-PIM platform and the industry adopted measuring instruments, companies can identify and select those indicators that best reflect the specifications for their products (eg quasi-static stiffness effect on the component geometry). The use of CIM-PIM concept will increase the understanding of the industry on the factors that influence e.g. deformations. Researchers can also develop new knowledge that can be used to better predict system behavior and lead to knowledge-based development.
Planned approach and implementation
The project consortium comprised partners with long experience in manufacturing processes including two research and four industrial partners namely KTH Royal Institute of Technology, University West, Scania CV AB, AB Volvo, Leax Mekaniska AB Falun, GKN Aerospace Sweden AB and SAAB Aeronautics. While the research partners, KTH and University West, was responsible for the development work, the industrial partners played a vital role in supporting the research work through appropriate case studies. The project activities were distributed in six work packages.
