MADE Competence Center Industry 4.0:
A digital and sustainable factory
MADE is a Competence Center for Industry 4.0 created to implement Orientation, Training, and Finalization activities for technology transfer projects with companies on Industry 4.0 issues.
A technical interlocutor that companies can turn to for support during the digital transition to a smart factory. The first contact with companies that are not aware of the Competence Center’s offerings is that of orientation during which we engage companies to increase their awareness on Industry 4.0 issues with the aim of developing training paths dedicated to technicians, but also to the strategic profiles of companies and carry out technology transfer projects.
The ultimate goal of the Competence Center is to keep the profile of companies high, competitive, and sustainable.
MADE is a reality created by MISE (Italian Ministry of Economic Development) to support manufacturing companies on the path of digital transformation. It guarantees a broad panorama of knowledge, methods, and tools in the area of digital technologies. From design to product engineering, production management, logistics, and end-of-life management, MADE provides its space and expertise to serve businesses.
These are the available technologies
Digitized production chain combines traditional processes and new manufacturing paradigms aimed at producing an increasingly complex and customized product
Big Data Analytics
Big Data Analytics
Collaborative robots (Cobots) are automated systems designed to work safely together with human operators in shared work environments.
Collaborative robotics and intelligent worker assistance systems
Digital Twin and Virtual Commissioning
Digital twin, a virtual representation of a physical element, enables in-depth analysis of the characteristics of the production process and product.
In-line product traceability and inspection
Serialization represents a new standard for encoding product information online that could be adopted in many areas in the near future. Integration of vision and machine learning systems for real-time defect detection enables the identification of nonconformities and defects
Industrial Cyber Security
The push toward industry 4.0 has enabled the collection of an ever-increasing amount of data. Data that is a very important asset that needs to be properly protected on par with applications as well as plants.
IoT smart connected product
The smart connected product is the enabler behind new service-based business models.
Lean production 4.0
Lean manufacturing is a scientific methodology that allows for more efficient and flexible production systems.
Logistics 4.0 is a cluster of technologies supporting the movement of goods in the supply chain.
The digitization of manufacturing supports a new way of making complex, customized products that require a paradigm shift in the way quality is designed.
Smart energy monitoring and control
Smart energy monitoring and control is enabled by real-time acquisition of consumption and power consumption by CNC machines and service equipment.
The real-time collection of data for monitoring enables smart maintenance where advanced data processing algorithms provide the best understanding of plant health.
Smart monitoring and control of industrial processes
Real-time collection of machine and system operating parameters enable smart monitoring and control of industrial processes.
Virtual design and new product development
Digital data, virtual processes, and their integration throughout the product development process are at the core of the Industry 4.0 approach.
