EU48685 Smart manufacturing and material technologies competence centre
Applied research: Knowledge base for 3D model based manufacturing process design and redesign (PR1.4)
Period of the sub-project: 01.09.15.-30.06.19.
Amount of support: 141000 EUR
Description of the sub-project
The automatic preparation of technological processes based on 3D features is divided into three stages:
- Recognition of manufacturing features based on 3D model
- Choosing appropriate technologies, using predefined rules
- Generation of manufacturing operations
Recognition of manufacturing features is configurable and it is possible to add user-specific forms there.
Using the knowledge base to save rules helps to accumulate knowledge and then re-use it in standardized way.
Operations are generated using the CAM system NX.
The objective and result of the sub-project
The objective of the sub-project is to increase the efficiency of production processes and optimize the technological parameters. The use of feature based machining software in preparation of a technological process significantly increases the speed of preparation and provides better quality technology. This will be achieved by:
- Using standardized technological processes; and
- Avoiding human mistakes.
The sub-project results in a knowledge base configured for local conditions to generate manufacturing processes in metal cutting industry.
Supporting fund: EU Regional Development Fund
The project is supported by the Competence Centre action and is carried out in cooperation with IMECC OÜ.
