High-Precision micro-forming of complex 3D parts

Objectif

Today, Europe’s leading position in manufacturing of formed, high-precision 3D metal parts is being threatened by developed non-EU countries that catch up quickly on product quality at low cost. If no further action is taken, loss of jobs and GDP are at risk. To face global competition, a breakthrough is needed in tackling the following four challenges: - Continuous product trend for higher quality, smaller features, at simultaneous demand for lower cost price; - Reduced number of finishing operations and consumption of raw materials and energy; - Reduction of machine downtime; - On-line 100% quality control of 3D complex shapes. HiPr will realise this essential breakthrough. The primary goal of HiPr is to develop and integrate all necessary base technologies which create the basis to control and monitor the condition of micro-tooling for complex high-precision 3D parts. This will be achieved by developing and integrating: in-depth process and material knowledge, in-line measurements, real-time predictive maintenance.
Proof will be given on pilot production lines in industrial settings. HiPr will do this with a consortium of partners best-in-class in these fields. The methodology that will be used to come to efficient realisation is the following: Define and describe the process, measure tool performance, model based prediction of tool performance. This methodology will result in reduction of: - cost by >20%; - material and energy consumption by >30%; - development cost reduction >30%. The knowledge-based HiPr results are also applicable in different sectors, leading to low defects, despite customisation trends. HiPr will therefore help in assuring a competitive and sustainable European manufacturing industry.
