Planning of test bed for visualized real time monitoring of components via integrated fiber optics

Reference number 2018-00485
Coordinator Swerea IVF AB - Avdelningen för Tillverkning
Funding from Vinnova SEK 500 000
Project duration April 2018 - February 2019
Status Ongoing

Purpose and goal

The aim of the project is to aid in the setting up of a future test bed based on results from the ongoing project ”Uppkoppling och tillståndsmätning av 3D-tillverkade komponenter i krävande applikationer (CoHM-3D)” (Vinnova 2017-01950). CoHM-3D combines additive manufacturing and real-time process monitoring in order to give unique opportunities for process optimization, prediction of component life time and improved component design.

Expected results and effects

A test bed which include AM methods for metals, ceramics and plastics, knowledge and strategies for fiber optical applications, equipment and software for monitoring, and visualization can contribute to spreading of digitalization in the Swedish industry. This could help the Swedish industry improve proactive maintenance and thereby avoiding costly production downtimes.

Planned approach and implementation

The project will be led by Swerea IVF (additive manufacturing, material knowledge) and RISE Acreo (fiber optics and data management) with support from Proximion (preparation, application and reading of fiber optics) and XMReality (visualization concepts).
