DigiMAT project featured on Basque TV

Sin categoría
DigiMAT project has recently been featured on Teknopolis TV program (emited by EITB on June 12th) as a part of the reportage "Digital and Green Metallurgy". Among the interviews performed to members from different technology centres, AZTERLAN researcher Argoitz Zabala, coordinator of Intelligent Manufacturing Technologies research line, explained part of the research work performed within the DigiMAT project: "we have focused on the right traceability of manufacturing processes. Capturing data from different parts of the proccess is not enough, on the contrary, correlation between data must be performed to find out which parametres have affected the characteristics of the components manufactured". Researcher Argoitz Zabala, coordinator of Intelligent Manufacturing Processes (AZTERLAN) was inteviewed by Teknopolis TV program. DIGIMAT Smart Module is shown in the screens behind him.

Thermolan® system promotes the industrial manufacturing of CGI

Sin categoría
AZTERLAN Metallurgy Research Centre has created a new technology that reinforces the industrial manufacturing of Compact Graphite Iron (CGI) components, based on Thermolan® system. Based on thermal analysis (using Thermolan® system), the new development from AZTERLAN Metallurgy Research Center correlates the various factors involved in the formation of compact graphite (CGI) and provides a significant boost to the industrial production of compact graphite iron cast components. Compact graphite iron (CGI), also known as vermicular graphite iron, displays outstanding mechanical properties such as high thermal conductivity and vibration damping, comprised between those of lamellar and spheroidal cast iron. These qualities make this material notably attractive for applications that require high thermal conductivity, which are currently manufactured in grey cast iron. Due to its higher mechanical properties, the use of CGI allows…

DyMetriCS

DyMetriCS

Iron, All
What is DyMetriCS? DyMetriCS, is a portable mismatch controller for molds in vertical molding systems that stores and analyzes the calibration measurements of the molds, diagnosing whether the molding machine needs to be readjusted. Compound by a measuring instrument and automated control and analysis software that allows to know, at any time, the status of the molding machine and keep it in optimal conditions throughout the manufacturing process. Why use DyMetriCS? The mismatch of the molds is a problem that it usually generates an extra deposition of metal as of ‘seams or burrs’, which have to be removed by mechanical operations at the end of the process. In the most critical cases, the mismatch can generate molding defects such as stresses or breaks, and produce defective parts defective. To ensure…

Salomon

Salomon

Aluminum, Shaped, Iron, All
Software that allows advanced and efficient multivariate data analysis available, using statistical techniques and algorithms based on Artificial Intelligence. Salomon simplifies the analysis of data through a fully defined and simple methodology to apply. Salomon is ready to be used directly by technicians involved in management or control of the analyzed industrial process. It is not required to be a computer expert. It allows identifying which are the critical variables, discovering how the process variables interact and establishing the optimal parameters for the manufacture of your products, minimizing possible rejection, reducing manufacturing costs and the costs associated with internal quality controls. Some screenshots of the application: An explanatory video of the product https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wa1fAM2Ytc&feature=emb_logo Access Salomon website

Sentinel

Sentinel

Aluminum, Shaped, Iron, All
Sentinel is a real-time data distribution system that allows to provide the correct data, in the correct hands and at the correct moment. Thanks to notifications through subscriptions, Sentinel will send the information and alerts to people and places where they really are useful. Sentinel allows the deployment of “Dashboards” or control panels designed according to the user's needs, adapting to different types of processes and focused on different types of materials, for example, aluminum, iron or steel. In addition, it allows to manage different manufacturing technologies such as casting, HPDC, LPDC, forging, stamping, surface treatments, machining, among others. Some screenshots of the software: Below we attach an explanatory video of the system: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5v9CkzEBYgw&feature=emb_logo Access Sentinel website

Thermolan

Thermolan

Aluminum, Iron, All
Thermolan® is a prediction system of the main properties of castings in real time. With a simple methodology, it allows a correct analysis of the percentage of carbon in real time to avoid shrinkage problems and ensure the mechanical properties of the manufactured parts. Moreover, it monitors the characteristics of the base metal, detects deviations and evaluates if the minimum quality criteria are met to ensure the manufacture of parts without defects. Furthermore, Thermolan can be used to: Determine the effect of different raw materials or fusion methodologies.Check the effect of the different treatments to which the liquid metal is subjected.And measure and compare, the effect of different inoculants. In this way, we are able to define in a more objective way the most suitable and profitable raw materials, additives…
