Final Report - NU-WAVE (Leveraging on new knowledge and latest advances in science and technology to allow large communities of EU textile machinery SMEs to innovate their products(…))

Project ID: 218479
Funded under: FP7-SME

Abstract

This is the final report of the NU-WAVE project which was funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The aim of the project was to improve the flexibility and the productivity of machines, to stress the resource efficient use and the sustainability of processes, to improve the work conditions and safety. The introductory chapters covers the preliminary Research and Development (R&D) activities which revealed the most active fields of worldwide industrial researches and highlighted, for the main textile machinery sub-sectors, the most promising technologies that could be implemented in the next generation of textile machinery. The following chapters cover the set of demonstrators which were, studied, designed and realised, in close cooperation with the involved small and medium-sized entreprises (SME). The report concludes by noting that based on the interesting results of the project, several follow-up actions have already started, coordinated by the involved SMEs and SME-AGs, to maintain continuity and bring to a increased level the demonstrators and the developed tools. Images are included.
