ESKALA 4.0– Optimización del tiempo de escala en el entorno aeroportuario en base al paradigma Industry 4.0 (ZE-2017/00042)

Eskala4

El objetivo general del proyecto ESKALA 4.0 es avanzar en la provisión de tecnologías estratégicas que nos acerquen al aeropuerto del futuro comenzando por la optimización de los tiempos de escala, aunque extensibles a otros entornos, como la única manera de satisfacer las crecientes demandas de eficiencia, economía, seguridad y compatibilidad ambiental según el concepto “Industria 4.0” y con las más altas cotas de automatización, como son las requeridas en los escenarios que integren diferentes vehículos automatizados de transporte terrestre (GVs) en operaciones aeroportuarias.

Ecolac - Prevention of dairy product's environmental impact through ecodesign

ECOLAC logo

Project’s aim is to prevent and reduce the environmental impact associated with the production of dairy products favoring the Ecodesign of food products by the design and use of software specially adapted to the special features of the sector.

It is within “Strategic Approaches” area of the LIFE+ Environment Policy and Governance program to promote the implementation of environmental policies associated to the food eco-design and to improve the environmental competitiveness of companies.

Aims

  • – Design a tool capable of improving existing products and processes.

    – Develop a Protocol for the Ecodesign of new products.

    – Promote the use of methodologies for design and manufacture of foodstuffs with environmental responsibility criteria.

    – Sensitize consumers towards eco-designed products.

Results

  • Environmental analysis
    • – Identification of the sources of environmental impact of dairy products
    • – Observation of Life cycle analysis of 5 significant dairy products
 
  • Ecodesign
    • – Ecodesign software linked to the main ERP tools
    • – 5.000 units of an ecodesigned dairy product with less environmental impact
    • – Ecodesign guide of new dairy products
  • Consumers
    • – Identification of green or responsible purchasing claims throug online surveys
    • – Study of consumers behaviour towards ecodesign through focus groups
    • – Education and sensitization campaign targeted towards consumers

Robotic cell for inspection by artificial vision chassis

gestamp1

Robotic system for dimensional inspection of the cabin cross several models of VW, Audi and Skoda.

The solution is automated part handling and dimensional machine vision inspection robot along checkpoints of the piece. Holes 30 and 40 welds are inspected.

The system includes:

  • A table of ABB turn 2 positions: loading / unloading and inspection.
    – Tools for fxing.
  • Robot ABB. Equipped with double gripper for placement of the two inspection systems.
  • Inspection system machine vision. The solution has two vision systems: one with linear camera and laser illumination and the other area camera and LED lighting.

Operation mode

  • Setting up an inspection system that ensures repeatability and accuracy of measurements.
  • Earn inspection time. The idea is to approaching the 100% inspection of production.

Plates-Slabs scanner equipment

plates1

Check the cutting depth of the plates prior to lamination

Using laser triangulation is obtained in real time the relief map of the upper side of the plate by determining the maximum depth dimension.

Communication to the control milling of such dimension so that drill at that depth avoiding waste aluminum.

Operation mode

Once the plate is in the inspection area, the lights go down and with the value that measures the distance meter the cameras are positioned (before it reaches the top of the plate). The system measures the deformation of the laser line (relief plate), and determines the profile of the plate.

Another key factor in obtaining the desired resolution is the power of the lasers. These are capable of shaping the plate sharply on the relief thereof, covering the entire width of the plate. This requires that the distance between the surface of the plate and the frame on which are mounted lasers and cameras are always the same for each different thickness of each plate. This involves having to position the height of the frame each time you will check a plate. To this end, on the same frame where the cameras are mounted, but in a more forward than the cameras position, a distance meter to inform us of the height at which the plate comes, to be able the system vision to position in height before the top of the plate reaches the vertical of the cameras.

The system capture images of the laser every 20ms and store the information associated to the value of the X axis encoder at that moment. After that, in the PC, a 3D reconstruction of the pieces made. Capturing an image every 20ms, assuming a large amount of images per second.

Features

From the software point of view, the application has the following utilities or features:

  • Calibration Module: Guide us during system calibration.
  • Module for testing: Normal operation mode in which the dimensional matrices obtained plate. The graphic presentation of the values obtained can be a color-coded two-dimensional plane or a three dimensional image of the profile of the plate.
  • Storage and processing of data module: Each of the matrixes obtained is stored in a SQL database, so you can query data from a particular plate after it has been processed. These data can be imported from a spreadsheet.
  • Communication module with the computer system of production planning: For each of the plates being inspected its identifier is sent (if entered by the operator), its maximum and minimum values and the date and time of verification.

Advantages

  • ROBUST
  • ACCURATE & REPETITIVITY
  • AUTOMATIC.
