DANOBATGROUP awards the prize to the TECNUN best work

With the aim of developing closer links between academia and the business world, the machine tool manufacturer DANOBATGROUP has recognised like the best industrial development project on “Turning of pipes and couplings in a machining environment” carried out by the students of the TECNUN (the University of Navarra Higher School of Engineering) Industrial Engineering Masters course.

This prize falls within the collaboration agreement framework signed by DANOBATGROUP and TECNUN in December 2015. The aim of this agreement is to promote the involvement of students in the professional world and offer them the opportunity to develop and transfer the knowledge acquired in the classroom to real industrial manufacturing environments.

Zero-defect manufacturing of composite parts in the aerospace industry

In the aerospace industry very high quality standards have to be met. For the manufacturing of carbon fibre parts this is currently solved through extended end-of-line inspection in combination with re-work processes to deal with defective parts. Also, in-situ visual inspection is used for quality control, which is currently causing huge productivity losses during lay-up and has become a real bottleneck in carbon fibre parts manufacturing. ZAero project will provide a solution by developing inline quality control methods for the key process steps: automatic lay-up (dry fibre placement and automatic dry material placement) and curing.

SORALUCE participates in the consortium for the development of the European project MC-SUITE

MC - Suite

MC - Suite

It searches to increase the competence of the European manufacturing industry, reducing the gap between the programmed process and the real part.

The MC-SUITE project proposes a new generation of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) which enables process simulation and optimization of tools enhanced by physical measurements and monitoring, thus reducing educes the distance between the virtual and the manufacturing process.

The advances in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) are revolutionizing our everyday life. However, the manufacturing industry has not taken complete advantage of this huge potential yet. The final aim of the MC-SUITE project is to open the doors of the manufacturing workshops to this new revolution. Indeed, the MC-SUITE project consortium strongly thinks that the current ICT can have a tremendous impact in the productivity increasing the competence and expertise of the European manufacturing companies and especially the SMEs.

SORALUCE creates system capable of increasing productivity by up to 300%

The European machine-tool manufacturer, which specialises in milling, boring and turning, is revolutionising its sector with DAS (Dynamics Active Stabiliser) technology, which has just earned it the European Quality Innovation of the Year and Best of Industry awards.

 DAS technology, which is set to be a revolution in the machine-tool sector, consists of a device that actively increases the dynamic rigidity of machines, thus increasing cutting capability by up to 300% due to the reduction of the risk of chatter during machining process. The system increases cutting capability in general, improves surface quality and reduces the risk of tool breakages, increasing tool lifetime under extreme conditions.

The system has been tested on all types of machining processes, such as press heads, motor pole shoes and dies, and in all cases its use has resulted in reductions of up to 45% in the machining times tested. Read more

SORALUCE receives “BEST OF INDUSTRY” award in “metal cutting machine tools” category

SORALUCE receives “BEST OF INDUSTRY” award

The Vogel Convention Centre in Würzburg hosted the presentation of the renowned ‘Best of Industry Award’ for 2015. SORALUCE received the ‘Best of Industry Award’ for industrial products for 2015 in the metal cutting machine tools category. With the innovative DAS (Dynamics Active Stabiliser) system (patent pending) created by SORALUCE’s R&D Department it is possible not only to increase the dynamic stability of machines but also to increase the chip removal capacity by up to 300%.

The DAS system breaks through physical limitations for the first time. It was developed thanks to a four-year cooperation project between SORALUCE and its IK4-IDEKO technology centre. Stringent practical trials were carried out on many different machining systems, based first and foremost on suggestions by users, e.g. in machinery construction, press heads, pole shoes for generators and the manufacture of large, high-strength components. In all these cases it proved possible to reduce machining time almost in half. Read more

DANOBATGROUP collaborates in the training for the TECNUN Industrial Engineering Masters

DANOBATGROUP has awarded the prize for the best conceptual design and precision engineering project to the students of the TECNUN Industrial Engineering Masters course.  The project involved taking on a practical challenge by the 33 students, who had the opportunity to develop their knowledge and put it into practice. The project was of technological value for the Machine-Tool sector within the area of Design and Precision Engineering of a grinder.

This activity is included within the collaboration framework signed between DANOBATGROUP and TECNUN last December, through which theoretical training is combined with projects and experiences in a real environment as the final objective.  University and company go hand-in-hand to demonstrate to future engineers the activities developed in the area of Research and Industry.  They are informed of the need of a high qualification and other necessary competencies to participate in and successfully meet the new future challenges within the machine tool sector.
