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...
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.
LeanMES Dashboards—Making Vital Information Visible
In FIMECC MANU program, manufacturing dashboards showing the most important information at one glance were designed and developed to monitor and control organisation’s performance at different operational levels. Dashboards reduce the gap between the humans and systems by turning data collected from processes and machines into Key Performance Indicators presented in visual...
