Modelling induction heating process of forging billets for automotive crankshafts

At Transvalor Tech Day Spain held on October 18th in Bilbao, TECNALIA presented the induction heating simulation model applied to the CIE Galfor crankshaft forging process that it is developing as part of the DENIM project (Digital intelligence for collaborative Energy management in Manufacturing). In this project, TECNALIA is generating models based on real and simulation data to predict and optimize the energy consumption of the entire crankshaft manufacturing chain for the automotive sector. The model created by TECNALIA with the FORGE software makes it possible to obtain the temperature profile of the forging billets during heating in the induction furnace, providing information on the heating…

Presentation at WCEAM 2022 – the 16th world congress on Engineering Asset Management

After 2 years of online events, the 16th World Congress on Engineering Asset Management (WCEAM) was held on 5-7 October 2022 in Seville, Spain. At the congress, VTT presented the framework for life-cycle cost and environmental impact indicators developed in the DENiM project and used the opportunity to inform the industry and research community about the LCC (Life Cycle Costing) and LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) research in DENiM.  The conference paper focused on smart energy efficiency improvements in the manufacturing processes and examined the cost and environmental indicators from several angles at the process and machine levels. In addition to the conference proceedings, the…

DENiM Workshop at Sustainable Places 2021

DENiM will participate in the Sustainable Places Conference 2021 to be held in Rome from 28 September to 1 October 2021.DENiM will be present in the “Pathways to Energy Efficient Manufacturing” workshop scheduled for September 28th from 15:30 to 18:30 CET.This workshop will increase collaboration between projects for sister projects FoF-09-2020 (DENiM, ENERMAN, ECOFACT and E2COMATION). To support the development of a more sustainable and energy efficient manufacturing industry, cross-cutting challenges such as digitization for energy efficient production (integration, data management and sharing, information modeling) need to be addressed, the energy twins for production systems (modeling, simulation) and monitoring and…
