Twin-Control aims to develop a simulation system that integrates the different aspects that affect machine tool and machining performance, including lifecycle concepts, providing better estimation of machining performance than single featured simulation packages. This holistic simulation model will be linked to the real machines in order to update itself according to their real condition and to perform control actions that will lead to performance improvements.



Twin-Control plenary meeting at the AMRC

On February 28, the Twin-Control consortium gathered for the 30th month plenary meeting at AMRC facilities in Sheffield, UK.

The AMRC is a research centre linked to the University of Sheffield that works with the most relevant aircraft builders (Boeing, Airbus, etc.) and their complete supply chain (Rolls&Royce, GKN Aerospace, Sandvik, DMG-Mori, etc). In the last years they are expanding their activities to other sectors, such as nuclear or automotive, and they have even created a training centre. Read more

FAG VarioSense Bearings

Source: Schaeffler

FAG VarioSense bearings — a combination of a standard rolling bearing and a sensor cluster — provide several sensor signals for monitoring machines and processes in one compact unit. And they offer a combination of different measured values which can be adapted to specific applications in a standard envelope.

Smart manufacturing must embrace big data

Source: Nature magazine

Manufacturing is getting smart. Companies are increasingly using sensors and wireless technologies to capture data at all stages of a product’s life. These range from material properties and the temperatures and vibrations of equipment to the logistics of supply chains and customer details. Truck engines beam back data on speed, fuel consumption and oil temperature to manufacturers and fleet operators. Optical scanners are used to spot defects in printed electronics circuits1.
