Data-driven modelling in the era of Industry 4.0: A case study of friction modelling in sheet metal forming simulations

ABSTRACT With growing demands on quality of produced parts, concepts like zero-defect manufacturing are gaining increasing importance. As one of the means to achieve this, industries strive to attain the ability to control product/process parameters through connected manufacturing technologies and model-based control systems that utilize process/machine data for predicting optimum system conditions without human intervention.

Introductory study of sheet metal forming simulations to evaluate process robustness

ABSTRACT The ability to control quality of a part is gaining increased importance with desires to achieve zero-defect manufacturing. Two significant factors affecting process robustness in production of deep drawn automotive parts are variations in material properties of the blanks and the tribology conditions of the process. It is imperative to understand how these factors […]

Samverkande robotar utvecklade av samarbetande ingenjörsteam

Studenterna i årskurs två har under vårterminen jobbat med en mekatronisk utmaning där uppgiften var att konstruera, bygga och programmera en autonom robot. Årets utmaning i projektkursen MT1458 fokuserade på samarbete, roboten skulle lösa en given uppgift så bra som möjligt genom att samarbeta med en robot konstruerad av en annan grupp studenter. En viktig […]

Öppet Hus på BTH

Under lördagen hade BTH öppet hus för att intresserade skulle få inblick i vilka studiealternativ som finns samt hur utbildningen är upplagd, samverkan med näringsliv och vilka labb-resurser mm som finns. Makerspacet hade öppet under dagen för att besökare skulle få se och känna på tekniken som våra studenter har access till.
