CloudFlow Open Call to be launched on 30/06/2014

Computational Cloud Services and Workflows for Agile Engineering is a European Integrating Project (IP) in the framework of Factories of the Future (FoF) that aims at making Cloud infrastructures a practical solution for manufacturing industries, esp. small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). The objective of CloudFlow is to ease the access to computationally demanding virtual product development and simulation tools, such as CAD, CAM, CAE, and make their use more affordable by providing them as engineering Cloud services.

Advances in the INTEFIX Case Study 1.2 : Turning of Low Pressure Turbine Casing

This case study covers one experiment within the INTEFIX project (FP7 Grant Agreement 609306). This application is proposed by ITP (Industria de Turbopro-pulsores, S.A.) and it deals with the reduction of vibrations in the manufacturing of a component of an aircraft engine: the case of the Low Pressure Turbine (LPT). The participants in this case study include the following companies: ITP, IK4-Tekni-ker, Invent GmbH, Cedrat Technologies, Compotech s.r.o., Alava Ingenieros and Adaptronics International GmbH.

Fortissimo: Second Open Call on going

The second open call has been opened May 5th 2014. This call for proposals seeks to broaden the portfolio of application experiments currently being carried out within Fortissimo focusing on simulation services for the benefit of manufacturing SMEs.
I4MS hosted two webinars about the 2nd Open Call of Fortissimo. Guy Lonsdale, manager of the Open Calls for Fortissimo, gave an overview of Fortissimo, the open call and details about how to propose an experiment. The slides of the webinar available for download from the Fortissimo web page and a replay can be seen at Youtube.

CloudSME Open Call is launched

CloudSME is developing a cloud-based, one-stop-shop simulation software platform solution that significantly lowers these barriers, thus enabling much wider take-up of simulation software technologies by engineering and manufacturing SMEs.Simulation software service providers may use the platform in the form of a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), enabling them to quickly create customised software applications in the cloud for their clients – engineering/ manufacturing SMEs - who see their customised application running as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) in the cloud.

LASHARE has initialised a first set of Laser based Equipment Assessments (LEA‘s)

The LASHARE project uses an approach called Laser based Equipment Assessment to advance demonstrated solutions in technology readiness level. As such, 14 assessments deal with equipment such as laser sources, processing heads, user interfaces for process setup or sensor equipment to control manufacturing processes. The assessments are conducted in a so called Assessment Circle, which includes four phases. More information
