DAT4.ᴢᴇʀᴏ is a project supported by the European Union. The project has 20 European partners who will work to improve quality in European factories. Innovative technologies will gather and analyse data from manufacturing processes and give businesses greater control of what happens during production.
OPTIMAI aims to create a new European industry ecosystem focused on innovative solutions to optimise production, reduce defects and improve quality to safeguard European industry for generations to come.
i4Q (Industrial Data Services for Quality Control in Smart Manufacturing) is a Horizon 2020 project that aims to assist manufacturing enterprises (small, medium, or micro) with moving towards Industry 4.0 while overcoming the hurdles preventing them to do so.
PENELOPE is a flagship project for the implementation of Pilot lines for large-part high-precision manufacturing, involving a consortium of 31 Partners from 10 EU countries. PENELOPE aims the development of a novel methodology linking product-centric data management and production planning and scheduling in a closed-loop digital pipeline by ensuring an accurate and precise manufacturability from the initial product design.
The InterQ project aims to measure, predict, control and manage the quality of the manufactured products, manufacturing processes and gathered data to assure Zero-Defect-Manufacturing through all the value chain. It proposes a new generation of digital solutions based on intelligent systems, hybrid digital twins and AI-driven optimization tools, powered with meaningful and reliable data, to assure the quality in smart factories in a holistic manner.
Zero Defects Manufacturing Platform
Zero Defects Manufacturing Platform (ZDMP) – is a multi-partner project that aims at providing an open platform to support factories to reach a zero defects goal. In this context, ZDMP will allow end-users to interconnect their systems (e.g. shop floor and ERP Systems) through ZDMP Applications (zApps), to improve product and process quality assurance.
Wind turbines are already part of everyday European life and are an essential element of the strategy to meet the Green Deal targets. Wind turbine blade size is steadily increasing with the largest new offshore blades >100 m in length. Composite blades are manufactured using resin infusion and coating processes. Even using modern manufacturing methods, these are subject to defects which result in re-work, scrap and repair. TURBO will reduce defect formation through better process simulation, monitoring and control, improve defect identification with new methods of non-destructive testing and introduce novel repair strategies in composites and coatings.
ZDZW develops digital non-destructive inspection (NDI) services as a set of strategic technologies to improve production efficiency, zero-defect, and sustainable manufacturing of European industries.
The aim of the project is to bring novel digital technologies to the liquid resin infusion process (LRI), one of the most widely used manufacturing processes using composite materials. By bringing advanced automated controls and in-line defect monitoring and detection to the LRI process, FLASH-COMP will allow industry to cut material waste significantly, while also improving efficiencies in the process and the quality of products produced.
The overall goal of the ENGINE project is to reduce the environmental impact and improve competitiveness of metal product manufacturers by developing a novel metal product design and manufacturing system, which integrates life-cycle analysis and business decisions, reduces defects, waste, and shrinks product time-to-market. The project will develop a first-time-right and zero-defect metal product design and manufacturing system, which will be applied on marine engine supply chain.
