Redesign and execution of destructive Test Tubes
One of the lines of work in this company is the preparation and machining of test tests for the railway and aeronautical industries, and when manufacturing them, in the case of certain tests, the requirements of the standard are difficult to meet from the point of view of adjustments and measures.
For this reason, the analysis of current machining strategies has been replaced by a rethink, with new parameterizations and applications.
3D scan of an artistic sculpture
This company needs to create the digital twin of a large sculpture that it has in its hands, and for this, with the knowledge and resources that we have in our center, the complete piece has been scanned and the CAM file to be created to be able to carry out 3D printing later.
It has been a complex job, due to the holes and complex shapes of the piece, but also attractive since it is a beautiful challenge to take steps in this learning process.
Collaboration in the construction of a 3D printing machine
This company, for an emerging 3D printing machine, once the design and structure had been determined, an aluminum structure had to be created, and taking advantage of the knowledge and resources of the welding teachers at our school, the structure had been built. Since it's not normal material, it's been a nice challenge.
Assembly, conditioning and commissioning of special cold rooms for the fertilisation of agricultural seeds
A centre that carries out agricultural studies needs special adapted cold rooms that are able to control the exact temperatures and humidity for the fertilisation of agricultural seeds, and that are able to control the exact temperatures and humidity, and to see the process.
For this purpose, a preparation process has been organised for 4 special cold rooms for the fertilisation and conservation of seeds, taking into account that each of them must be able to control the specific conditions of temperature and humidity.
It is then put into operation and given the manuals and explanations of parameterisation for the control of the process.
Suspension protection for an BTT
For mountain bikes known as Btt, the design and manufacture of suspension toothpaste protection parts in 3D printed polymer.
Because of the use given to it, the material must be hard, but equally it cannot be fragile, and the adjustment of the measures must be very precise.
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.).
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.
