Smart Process Optimised Tool (SPOT), an Industry 4.0 world first approach for reliable and repeatable crimping and cutting hand tool technology

Project description

Robot to the rescue in the factory

Production plants are getting smarter. Human-machine interface (HMI) technologies, which have evolved dramatically in recent years, have made it possible for factories to replace manual monitoring and control of machines and equipment with automated systems. The EU-funded SPOT project has developed an Industry 4.0 solution that improves process reliability to an impressive 0 % fail rate (currently at 20-25 %). It includes sensor technology – a patented force distribution system and an advanced intelligent central unit. The goal is for SPOT to become the industry standard. As such, the project is refining its market knowledge, planning its scale-up for manufacturing, and helping partners produce an elaborated business plan.
