HPCwire Readers' and Editors' Choice Awards for Fortissimo.

Fortissimo has been awarded with both the 2015 HPCwire Editors' and Readers' Choice Awards in the area "Best use of HPC in the cloud"!

Introducing Fortissimo II

Fortissimo 2 – the follow up project to Fortissimo – has been launched November 1st, 2015. Like Fortissimo the project will enable European SMEs to benefit from HPC cloud based simulation solutions. Fortissimo 2 is funded by the European Commission under the H2020 program and will run until October 2018. Soon the first set of experiments will start and two open calls for experiment proposals are planned for 2016. Read more.

A Reconfigurable robot workCell for fast set-up of automated assembly processes in SMEs

SMEs would benefit from robotic automation for automated assembly, but often cannot use it due to long set-up times & maintenance complexity. Set-up and maintenance require expert knowledge and time for configuration and programming, which is too costly for SMEs. The aim of the ReconCell project is to develop an easy to (re-)configure and (re-)program robotic workcell, making robot solutions commercially viable even for small batch sizes by reducing set-up & maintenance effort substantially.

Smart integrated Robotics system for SMEs controlled by Internet of Things based on dynamic manufacturing processes

The HORSE consortium met in Athens-Greece during 9-11 Nov 2015. The meeting completed successfully, and detailed timeplan has been created for the architecture specification as well as the end-user requirements collection. Pilot scenarios were thoroughly presented by the end-users, in addition to all different technological components to be addressed in the HORSE platform. More information

APPOLO Workshop -High Throughput and High Precision Laser Micro Machining with Ultra Short Pulses

On 4th of November 2015 APPOLO workshop was held in Bern University of Applied Sciences BUAS, Switzerland. The actual APPOLO workshop on high throughput and high precision laser micro machining with ultrashort pulses follows this idea and brings together researchers, laser and laser equipment manufacturers as well as integrators and end users.
