Digitalizing supply network operations and development
Offering new products to markets in a profitable and fast way necessitates transferring the focus towards early phases of development process, systematization of all processes and high-performing supplier network. This is a significant reformation for participating supply network. Besides supplying components, supplier early involvement is needed more often to participate...
Robot welding unit with full digital measuring data
Innovative robot welding unit with full digital measuring data was develop under the DIMECC MANU programme. The developed solution turns the quality checking of weld profiles in automated production systems into digital era creating prerequisites for high productivity and quality welded structure manufacturing.
Speeding up the new product development process with the digital fatigue strength simulation tools
There is a need for shortening the design and development time spans of new products in the Finnish machinery industry. One way to shorten the time to market is introduce modern integrated digital design tools to support the machinery industry´s product design and development. As a result of the development work done under FIMECC MANU programme new digital fatigue strength...
Virtual testing of steel ductility
In FIMECC BSA program VTT has developed together with Ruukki Construction and SSAB, acceptance criteria for new constructional high-strength steel grades. A new method to define the requirements for determination of material ductility parameters was described. The method was applied for the verification of local failure of structural parts with holes. The criteria developed...
Digital design concept takes full advantage of novel HYBRID materials
FIMECC HYBRIDS programme brings material research and design to a new level by digitalizing materials R&D. The digital design concept takes full advantage of novel hybrid materials and speeds up product design significantly.
Mobile service technician 4.0
FIMECC S-STEP program has developed augmented reality based concepts of data and knowledge sharing solutions for mobile service technicians. The concepts introduce both new maintenance practises and new interaction tools to provide fluent access to data and knowledge relevant for the task at hand. The solutions will increase work satisfaction of service technicians, improve...
Speeding up solutions business development through piloting
Solutions business holds great promise to industrial companies. Yet, developing solutions also takes a long time, it is costly and its outcomes are uncertain. What if we could make solutions business development faster, more cost-efficient and less likely to fail? VTT has developed a novel approach to piloting in FIMECC FutIS program.
Developing wear control technology for severe slurry mineral handling conditions
A model for elastomer wear behavior in demanding condition was developed to create a deeper understanding of the polymers as wear resistant materials. The developed model can be utilized in the industry by doing better material choices in applications and by developing better rubber compounds.
Building blocks for operations and maintenance
From various machines and processes different variables relating to their state, operational environment, production process etc. are continuously measured. Very large amounts of measurement data are thus generated and they should be processed into useful information. Tools and methods developed in the TOLKKU project facilitate turning data masses to information...
Video series on UX
Positive user experience as a philosophy is a powerful way to re-think business. Video series on UX (in Finnish) offer insight into UX-driven design and the role of user experience (UX) in business. Videos also includes examples how user experience philosophy has been deployed in companies.
