This event at the company’s UK Demonstration Campus will explore some of its recent application inventions for virtual manufacturing and how they will impact production lines to increase accuracy, reduce training time and create a digital twin of operations.
Demos during the tour of Holovis will include:
Industry 4 is at the convergence of emerging enabling technologies. It is the union of advanced production, operation, and smart digital technologies, to create intelligent and interconnected digital enterprises with the promise of self-managing and self-optimising automation. Digital Twin, a pre-requisite to the Industrie 4 vision, is often described as a digital replica of a physical environment or process. However, it should be more accurately described as a digital mirror, where the Digital Twin not a mere copy but a faithful reflection of a physical environment.
In this session, Henry Chow of Holovis deconstructs the Digital Twin concept to provide guidance on how businesses may embark on the Industry 4 journey and how Augmented Reality technologies could provide a key to unlocking the digital frontier.
Victoria Tews, Commercial Director at HSSMI will give a high level summary of how HSSMI’s work streams are integral to the SME manufacturing market.
Aanand Dave, Virtual Engineering Manager at HSSMI will present a piece of HSSMI’s technical work on a “digital twin for automotive production” with a focus on modularity and adaptation of this type of model for an SME market.
Dr Toby Maw of the The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) will deliver a presentation on the use of metrology in advanced manufacturing.
Metrology is a key manufacturing process step that adds value to the component and process chain by increased knowledge on the component (i.e. quality) and upstream manufacturing processes and is an enabler of the Digital Twin. Computer Aided Inspection (CAI) techniques are in-line with developments toward Industry 4.0 concepts. Part of CAI is Digital Measurement Planning (DMP), which brings inspection information forward into the component design stage of manufacturing.
The presentation will cover the concept of DMP as well as example use-cases involving current capabilities that can lead to reduction of manual processes in measurement planning, shorter inspection lead times, standardisation of measurement planning and traceability of results and reports.
The iNet will outline the support and funding for SME Innovation and Growth from The iNet, and programmes SMEs can take advantage of. It will also provide examples of successful bids for funding.
