Demonstration of Infrastructure for Digitalization enabling industrialization of Additive Manufacturing – DiDAM

Project time: 2020 – 2023

Budget: 25 407 953 kr

DIDAM develops and demonstrates digitalization solutions to industrialize Additive Manufacturing

Manufacturers, suppliers of digital platforms, together with institutes and universities represent actors in a complex value chain that together demonstrate ways to ensure traceability (digital threads) and improved product and process quality through modeling / simulation with digital twins which will lead to fewer errors in printing, shorter set up times and lead times in product realization processes using additive manufacturing in complex value chains.

DIDAM demonstrate digital solutions to achieve
1. Efficient digital information flow using, and establishing, standards
2. Efficient sharing of information for new industrial value chains
3. Deploying resource efficient production and remanufacturing of products
Demonstrations are an important step to realise the potential existing with additive manufacturing and to show best practice.

The industrial participants contribute with realistic use cases, where Chalmers and Rise together with Eurostep, Value Chain and Printsys utilize research results and available software to demonstrate solutions. The project also collaborate with the EU project Manuela.

SCARCE II – Sensible Value Chain through Digitalised Planning, Materialhandling and Circular Economy

SCARCE II will develop a demonstrator to show how SMEs and associated value flows can increase efficiency, competitiveness, sustainability and internal collaboration through digitalisation. The goal is to show the value of a new digital solution. SCARCE focuses on two subcontractors in the value chain linked to Scania and Volvo. The demonstrator is a cloud-based solution that connects three test beds in the industry; Stena Industry Innovation Lab, Chalmers, RISE IVF lab, Mölndal and KTH's test bed in Södertälje with the help of Siemens, AFRY, Qbim, Virtual Manufacturing and EQPack.

SCARCE II – Sensible Value Chain through Digitalised Planning, Materialhandling and Circular Economy

Sensible Value Chain: Material Flows, Roles and Circular Economy – SCARCE

SCARCE will investigate the needs, possibilities and obstacles in value chains up- and down-stream from a focal SME company. SCARCE will explore what data to measure and visualize, and how this data can enable more automated execution, as well as, more dynamic and proactive planning of production capacity and material flows across the companies in the value chain. In addition, we will study organizational capabilities, especially the future human role, for implementing and managing in a digital and data-driven value chain.

Two major disruptive trends – electrification and digitalization are changing customer preferences, leading to the probably most substantial transformation in the automotive industry we observed in decades. Finding a balance between customer’s requirements towards “zero-emission vehicle,” “connected car,” choice of materials, clarity of functions, and interface modes under the pressure of production time and cost are not easy. The AttributDo-project aims to help engineers create, define, verify and validate new and existing design features for new product development.

Sustainable Metal Powder Utilization in Powder Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing

This project intends to design and develop a new test methodology for evaluation of power flowability in powder bed fusion (PBF) systems. The test apparatus will simulate powder flow in PBF machines and can be used for optimizing the powder layering behavior for potential utilization of alternative powder qualities. Additionally, this equipment creates opportunities for both powder producers and AM part manufacturers to minimize powder waste and maximize material utilization.

Infrastructure for Digitalization enabling industrialization of Additive manufacturinG – IDAG

IDAG aim to identify gaps and propose actions for the digital infrastructure necessary to industrialize additive manufacturing technologies. Actors from a new type of value chain of manufacturing companies – from powder to product – collaborate with digital solution providers and researchers to understand the needs and articulate the necessary actions through analysis of industrial cases. The target is to deliver a description in the form of a roadmap for how these actions can be developed and provided in order to ensure flexible and scalable digital platforms for additive manufacturing value chains.

Humle – Human Perspective, Machine-Learning ERP-systems

This project aims to contribute to the development of future ERP-systems. The project will explore how to offer work, redefine work roles and challenge companies to make use of advanced systems support and the technology within and around these. Overall, the project aims to contribute to the development of both the next generation of ERP-systems and a complementary change in the way firms see upon work organization, so that technology can support and meet the needs of the humans within organisations rather than enforcing structures upon them.

Virtual PaintShop – Simulation of Oven Curing

The paintshop is often a bottleneck in production and the processes are fine-tuned based on testing on numerous prototypes. To meet the future demands there is a great need to improve the product preparation process. The aim is to develop methods, techniques and software, and supporting measurement methodology, for simulation of paint curing in IR and convective ovens. The goal is to assist the industry to further develop and optimize their surface treatment to be more energy and cost efficient; to have a shorter lead time in product development; and to give a higher product quality.
