Technical advice and support for the implementation of an ERP in the digitisation of the company.

The objective of this project is for the company to make the leap from its traditional way of working to digital, our centre must help it in this process of digitisation of documentation and subsequently create the organisation process of this ERP.

To do this, we had to start with the digitisation of their documentation from the beginning, and then design and build an information architecture, in order to subsequently organise a proper connection with the ERP.

Finally, the entire process has been implemented and put into operation in the company.

Assembly and application to the quality control of highly complex and large-sized forming assemblies based on advanced manufacturing and digitalisation.

The main objective of the project is the application of technological solutions that simultaneously guarantee the manufacturing process and the dimensional measurement of highly complex, precise and large-sized forming parts, using technologies based on Industry 4.0. In other words, the development of technological solutions that guarantee dimensional control in the manufacturing and assembly process itself, based on image digitalisation.

In the majority of metal manufacturing processes (machining, forging, stamping, cutting, melting, boiler making, etc.), significant progress is being made in adapting technologies to the challenges of each sector and in integrating the different areas of existing Industry 4.0. However, in the production of large and complex parts, it is often necessary to combine the manufacturing processes mentioned above, and the combination itself and the difficulties presented by the size of the parts that do not find an answer in the classic 4.0 technological solutions.

The close relationship with the SMEs of Tolosaldea has led us to be aware of the common problems of the companies in the area and to participate in partial solutions through the Tkgune projects. Therefore, the aim is to achieve the most appropriate technological solution by combining the companies' own experience and resources, in which technological solutions are applied that simultaneously guarantee the manufacture and dimensional measurement of highly complex, precise and large forming parts, based on technologies based on Industry 4.0. That is to say, the development of technological solutions that guarantee dimensional control in the manufacturing and assembly process itself, based on image digitalisation (artificial vision, non-destructive inspection, scanners, tomography, etc.).

Passive shower

What is it?

It is a heat recovery unit integrated in the shower tray that allows us to recover the heat energy from the water used for showering by preheating the cold water from the supply network.

How does the Passive Show save energy?

We start from the premise that the water used is a mixture of hot water from the heating system and cold water from the supply network; the proportion of use of each depends on the consumption temperature and the cold water temperature; the colder the water of the network is, the more hot water is consumed to compensate for the lower temperature. Our system heats the cold water from the network to reduce the consumption of hot water. For that, the shower tray channels the hot water used and directs it from the outside of a heat exchanger located on the surface of the tray. The cold water flows out of the heat exchanger and is heated from the front before mixing with hot water. This reduces the amount of hot water needed to obtain the temperature required for consumption, resulting in energy and cost savings.

Speech recognition systems with artificial intelligence for Integration of new modes of communication between humans and industrial machines.

Nowadays, Computers can perform tasks previously considered impossible for a machine and they can also automate activities that require human perceptual skills, such as face and language awareness or automatic learning. This project aims to interact with automatisms through voice detection.

This project, in which research and the incorporation of technology will be developed, will analyse different voice detection systems by using Artificial Intelligence in the industrial world, taking into account their particular characteristics (noise, different controllers, etc.) and making the most suitable system choices. In this way, the technology developed could be incorporated in the different vocational training centres.

Other important objectives to achieve with this project are as follows:

- To develop the field of Artificial Intelligence Voice Detection in industry.

- To open a new channel between different human and industrial controllers (PLC, CNC, Robot,... ).

- To be able to use language, in a natural way, in a natural way, to collaborate with installations, machines and robots in the industrial world.

The schools MIGUEL ALTUNA from Bergara and LHII TOLOSALDEA from Tolosa have taken part in this project.

SAFEM- OKOBIO: Design of a new machining strategy to be implemented in the company

This company, in certain parts to be produced, because of the material and geometry used, has difficulty in machining the parts, both in process and in measure. For this reason, he has been assisted by a teacher from our school, working with his staff to achieve the goals.

Tolosaldea LH ikastetxea eta Tknika-ko WAAM proiektua

This academic year 22-23, Tolosaldea FP school continues taking part in the WAAM project, within Metallic Additive Manufacturing specialization field led by Tknika.

In this project, which belongs to the field of "Additive Manufacturing", work is being carried out on the manufacture of medium and large parts.

The main objective is to gain knowledge of the process by the development of practical cases, identifying the main variables involved in the process, the most appropriate manufacturing strategies and the critical points or aspects to be controlled. This type of Additive Manufacturing processes forms the family of DED (Directed Energy Deposition) processes and within this we can distinguish the WAAM and LMD processes.

The WAAM process (Wire and Arc Additive Manufacturing), as described in its acronym, is a process in which a metallic thread wire is melted under the effect of an electric arc, forming welding points or beads that are deposited layer by layer until the preform is obtained, which is very close to the final target part. Final machining operations are necessary in all cases. It is a process particularly suitable for obtaining medium or large parts thanks to the high effective feed rates of between 1 and 4 kg/h, depending on the material, type and size of the part.

Within WAAM we can distinguish between plasma arc based processes and MIG based processes. Either of them can be integrated in a robotic cell or in a machine environment depending on the process requirements. The robots provide flexibility while the machines (Addilan V0.1) provide the possibility of working in protected atmospheres and much higher levels of process control.

As an example, we can see below the Teknopolis programme broadcasted last June

Additive Metal Manufacturing technologies are booming and proof of this is the activity that is being developed at Technology Centres and Universities around us. Along with that, companies have started either developing solutions or incorporating these processes into their manufacturing processes. The goal set from FP-Euskadi is to contribute to this process of technological development by transferring the knowledge acquired to the entire network and training our students in this type of technology with a promising future.

STEAM SCHOOL: Promoting science and technology education among young people.

This is an initiative to promote STEAM culture that combines science and technology among today's young people who will be the future of our society.

For that reason, in collaboration with the Development Agency of Tolosaldea and the City Council, this offer has been opened to the ESO students of Tolosaldea, taking advantage of the facilities and resources of our centre in the afternoons in order to develop the STEAM culture. This group of young people will spend the whole course with the help of a teacher from our centre.

Digitaldea, promoting sustainable digital transformation

The implementation and development of the Maturity Model is led by the Directorate of Technology and Advanced Learning of the Vice-Ministry of Vocational Training of the Basque Country, coordinated by a team called Digitaldea.

The Digitaldea team is made up of several Vocational Training teachers, including members of our centre Iñigo Balerdi (promoter of the digital transformation) and Andoni Berasategi (responsible for IT infrastructures), and its aim is to adapt the design of the implementation strategy of the Maturity Model itself to the pace and real needs of both the centres and the Vocational Training system.

The experience accumulated in the Vocational Training centres in deploying such strategic initiatives has shown us that success is based on a coordinated teamwork. For this reason, teams for digital transformation have been created in each vocational training centre, called eraldi, so that, in coordination with the Digitaldea team, they can contribute to the design and deployment of the centre's digital strategy.

The main objective of this Maturity Model is to position both the Basque Vocational Training system and its centres at the forefront of digital transformation.
