Eureka SMART I-Stamp

Reference number
Coordinator RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 2 653 574
Project duration January 2022 - June 2024
Status Ongoing
Venture Eureka Cluster within sustainable development

Purpose and goal

To be competitive in the future, Industry 4.0 is a necessary step for Swedish industry. The objective of the I-Stamp project is therefore to create an intelligent and sustainable stamping process. Presses and tools are large costs for the automotive industry, so efficient production is important to maintain a good return on these investments. The I-Stamp project´s intelligent system will drastically increase the OEE ("Overall Equipment Effectiveness") number and reduce the amount of scrap. The goal is to increase the OEE number by 5% and reduce the amount of scrap by 50%.

Expected results and effects

The Swedish consortium has a value chain that can independently develop and exploit the intelligent control system. Swedish companies will implement the control system in production or sell developed services and products in the project. Since I-Stamp develops a complete solution with sensors, actuators and control system, this will lead to strong positioning in Industry 4.0 for participating universities and institutes participating in the project, ie. RISE, BTH and Mondragon.

Planned approach and implementation

The I-Stamp project will be developed and operated in four stages. In the first step, requirements specifications for systems and demonstrators are produced. In the next step, the project´s innovations are developed in the form of meta-models for the hybrid control unit, development of actuators and measurement technology of the material flow. These components are integrated with the hybrid control system in step 3. Initially, the system is tuned in a lab environment. In the fourth and final step, hardware and software are implemented in a real production environment.
