3D Printing Offers a New Way to Manufacture Hydraulic Manifolds with Greater Operational Performance
3D printing can be utilized for manufacturing hydraulic manifolds which are lighter, smaller and more functional than conventionally manufactured manifolds. A case study of re-designing a hydraulic manifold led to 72 % weight reduction compared to the original model. The solution reduces power loss and hydraulics noise in machines.
Welding opens new possibilities to utilize 3D-printing in industrial applications
The research done in FIMECC MANU program revealed that 3D-printed metal objects can be welded with good quality. The result ensures the fully utilisation of 3D-printing technology in production offering totally new opportunities and significant savings.
With new process data treatment less time in laboratory
A new procedure for identification of impurities in process stream without laboratory analyses has been develop in FIMECC SIMP program. The new procedure enables online control increasing the productivity of metal processes.
Science Recovers the Lost Sensory Feedbacks
Remote operation of unmanned machines lack of sensory information which is essential in carrying out various tasks in traditional manual control. This results in low production capacity and overloading of machines. Haptic control recovers the lost sensory feedback in remote operation and enables operation from cabin with high productivity, better damage avoidance and good...
