    • 15:30 MEASURING HOT PARTS – A CONDITION EVALUATION15:30 - 16:00Michael Marré - Fachhochschule Südwestfalen

      Quality properties of forged parts are of paramount importance in manufacturing. Already at part creation, quality must be closely controlled. A massive reduction of scrap rates is achieved only when part and process properties are quickly determined and necessary counter measures subsequently initiated. As a result of our research activities, we invented equipment and methods to measure the dimensions of hot parts forged moments before, including a forecast of the part’s measurement once fully cooled down.

      The presentation will guide you through the fundamentals of hot measurement by introducing you to the set-up of a hot measurement device. Examples of measurement tasks and the quality of the results will be provided in connection with a business scenario for the forging industry.

    • 16:00 Introducing data analytics in hot forging 16:00 - 16:30Javier Arribas & Jon Jubin - Alcorta Forging Group

      Hot forging is in continuous developing, passing in a few years from having manual processes to fully automatic forging lines. Simulation has also become essential between the forging companies since last decade. And now is time to go ahead with the next challenge: INTRODUCTION OF DATA ANALYTICS IN HOT FORGING.

      Benefits of a fully sensorized forging process will be studied, trying to understand, analyze, predict and correct all the process deviations. Every captured data is helpful to reduce the manufacturing variability and useful for productivity and quality improvements.

      Data analytics, necessary step to remain forging companies competitiveness in a global market, always offering the maximum guarantee of quality to their customers.

    • 16:30 Industrial 4.0 digitalization in 5G era16:30 - 17:00Tiago Rodrigues - Wireless Broadband Alliance

      5G and Wi-Fi 6/6E advanced capabilities are opening unparallel opportunities for the industrial sector to increase overall productivity and manufacturing quality, to reduce the cost of goods and to improve enterprise access security.

      The first Wi-Fi 6 & 6E trial for the Industrial 4.0 and Internet of Things (IIoT) took place in the UK, as Mettis Aerospace Ltd. explores advanced use cases involving augmented reality (AR), multi-stream live video monitoring, real-time energy monitoring and ultra-reliable, low-latency sensors on critical systems to augment the 5G ecosystem.

      Learn how Mettis, a producer of precision-forged, machined components for companies like Airbus, Boeing and Rolls-Royce, has embraced the Industrial 4.0 Digital Transformation to improve productivity in a challenging manufacturing environment, in partnership with companies including Cisco, Broadcom, Intel and BT.

      Gain insight into the benefits of Wi-Fi 6/6E and 5G convergence for complex IoT environments that have multiple access technologies, especially those that traditionally have presented challenges for deploying wireless technologies.
