Tailored heat treatment through digitalized process chain

Reference number
Coordinator Swerim AB - Swerim AB, Kista
Funding from Vinnova SEK 300 000
Project duration September 2018 - April 2019
Status Completed
Venture Strategic innovation programme for process industrial IT and automation – PiiA

Purpose and goal

The purpose of the project was to investigate the possibilities for digitalization of the heat treatment industry. Within the project, a gas process was studied at Bodycote Värmebehandling. A more general methodology for digitalization has been developed. The prerequisites for successful digitization are considered to be good.

Expected results and effects

The expected result of the project was to lay the ground for a successive application for a larger FUI project.

Planned approach and implementation

We have used methods based on statistical machine learning and artificial intelligence to analyze quality data collected by Bodycote during the entire project period. Within the project, we have also developed a more general methodology for digitizing industrial processes, which means combining available process knowledge with collected process data for maximum yield.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
