NAIA: New equipment and eco-efficient tools for 4.0 Industry
NAIA: New equipment and eco-efficient tools for industry 4.0
This project, developed in collaboration with the Gestamp Group, Betico and Tecnalia technology center, aims to develop new equipment and tools that allow not only an efficient management of the consumptions of furnaces and compressors, but also have a solution that allows the automation of the detection of energy inefficiencies at the plant level based on the reading and processing of energy consumption data and global production data.
Next, the new furnace model resulting from the project is described:
- ECO SMART Furnace NAIA. Virtual oven model towards an Industry 4.0 control.
It will be developed a virtual hot stamping furnace model and an optimized control of it. The proposed control, based on Data Analytics techniques, will base the operation on the target temperature of the piece instead of on the target furnace temperature, with the consequent energy saving.
This project, NAIA, has been co-financed by the SPRI, Business Development Agency of the Basque Government.
