Project co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund under the tender Regione Emilia Romagna POR FESR 2014-2020 “call for projects of collaborative research and business development” - DGR 773/2015 and subs. amend.

THE AMOUNT OF ASSISTANCE GRANTED: Euro 872,695.00

PERIOD OF PERFORMANCE: May 2016 – April 2018

DESCRIPTION

The project consists in the study, design, implementation and testing of an advanced multi-station machine tool, called "transfer". The machine will be fitted with technological features that are completely new compared to the state of the art in the field.

The R&D project will be supported by a related industrial project, with considerable investments in terms of workforce growth and establishment of dedicated productive areas.

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the project are as follows:

- increase machine performance in the context of a significant reduction in energy consumption.

- eliminate pollutants from the productive process.

- develop an innovative “Industry 4.0” supervision platform.

- pursue high market competitiveness by reducing investment and operatingt costs and increasing productivity.

RESULTS

The project will involve the construction of a multi-station transfer prototype equipped with technological solutions such as:

- reduce lubricant consumption

- reduce energy consumption

- obtain "warm-up zero"

- increase machining speed

- allow machine monitoring according to "Industry 4.0" standards
