D4V – Design for Value Program Report
The focus of DIMECC D4V program has been on door-to-door supply chain which is under digital disruptions and is rapidly changing towards an ecosystem of fully autonomous system-of-systems. The program has worked on autonomous maritime and manufacturing logistics use cases. The research work has been facilitated through joint pilots and concepts. Those concept themes have...
Calibrator heads to the cloud with a wireless interface – created for Beamex by Sasken in DIMECC’s Demobooster
High-tech calibrator producer Beamex found their software solution from DIMECC’s innovative platform, Demobooster. The wireless interface for Beamex was developed in just three months by Sasken Finland, Beamex’s new partner found by Demobooster. The interface verified by Demobooster’s demo proves that the calibration solutions by Beamex can be brought to the cloud as well.
FINAL REPORT: S4Fleet - Service Solutions for Fleet Management
The goal of the Services for Fleet program (2014-2017) was to innovate industrial services that build on the ongoing digital transformation and leverage the existing global fleet of equipment and people. The program results include about 30 business outcomes, almost 200 academic publications, and a large number of internal and public seminars. The program consortium created...
Grant year brings business and academic research closer
PoDoCo program bring postdocs and companies together accelerating the co-creation and cross-disciplinary collaboration. The seamless collaboration between PhD Otto Långvik and Mirka under the PoDoCo program is another example how dynamic business and advanced academic research can learn from each other and build competences for further growth.
PoDoCo project pushed lightweight vessel forward
Ingrit Lillemäe-Avi investigated the fatigue strength of high strength steel with Meyer Turku under the PoDoDo program. The results show significantly improved fatigue strength of this innovative steel pushing lightweight vessel forward. Ingrit is now employed by Meyer Turku and continues the research work with the aim to introduce high strength steel in vessel structures.
FINAL REPORT: HYBRIDS "Hybrid Materials”
The DIMECC HYBRIDS program (2014-2017) was designed to create new capabilities enabling the combination and use of common engineering materials in an innovative way. The mission of the program was to create and to effectively run a unique multidisciplinary knowledge platform for advanced hybrid materials solutions. The highly cross technological industry group of 38...
FINAL REPORT: BSA "Breakthrough Steels and Applications"
The overall goal set for the DIMECC Breakthrough Steels and Applications program (2014-2017) was to enable a renewal of the Finnish metal and engineering industries through major improvements in their offerings and global competitiveness brought about by the intelligent use of novel advanced steel products. The program was built around the entire steel value chain....
Digitalization brings materials research and design to a new level
DIMECC HYBRIDS and BSA programs bring material research and design to a new level by digitalizing materials R&D. The digital design concept takes full advantage of novel materials. The ultimate goal is to enable to product specific design of materials, and exploiting detailed models in design of material solutions and solving materials related problems in products.
Superior bendability of ultra-high-strength steels
The solution enabling the better formability and bendability of ultra-high-strength steels was developed in the DIMECC BSA program. The developed solution enables the utilisation of ultra-high-strength steels in new applications in which the utilisation of such steels was not possible earlier due to poor bendability of the steel. The outstanding properties of...
Automated test method for elastomers
Test method for the fatigue behaviour of elastomers was developed in the DIMECC HYBRIDS programme. The developed test method enables the testing of materials and material combination in various loading conditions without extensive and time consuming laboratory trials resulting in a shortened time-to-market and development processes. The test method also enables the...
