Gorenje ORODJARNA is one of the biggest Slovenian manufacturers of tools for sheet metal processing working with very high energy-intensive processes. DENiM will support the identification of the most promising optimisations in terms of energy usage by extensively integrating digital twins of machining processes for production planning optimisation.

Objectives & Technologies

  • Implement machine-based energy and compressed air consumption monitoring
  • Introduce energy optimisation variable for optimal production set up and schedule
  • Integrate new sensors with existing monitoring systems to feed this information into the digital twin
  • Analyse the role of each machine

Expected Targets


50% increase of energy intensive machines monitored

Energy Efficiency

25% reduction of electrical energy via optimal scheduling and planning

Cost Savings

LCC Reduction of at least 15% of final product due to process optimisation
