CECIMO is partner of DIMOFAC, a project funded by H2020, which will run from October 2019 to 2023.
DIMOFAC project deals with the impact of digitalisation in the manufacturing environment. It will enable the modularity, adaptability and responsiveness of a production line by integrating Plug-and-Produce modules in a Closed-Loop Lifecycle Management System. It will therefore support continuous production adaptation, optimization and improvement, in a fast and flexible manner.
DIMOFAC will achive reconfigurability by implementing a Digital Twin of each module and by deploying Digital Thread linking product and process dataflow, enabling seamless secure communication throughout the product lifecycle in factory and connecting it to the management systems in conformance to RAMI4.0.
Six industrial pilot lines, with multi-material manufacturing, additive manufacturing and assembly capabilities, will enable to demonstrate DIMOFAC Modular Factory Solution, with reconfiguration time reduction of production lines, up to 75% expected for interactive displays (SCHALTAG), 50% for cosmetic, aeronautic and additive manufacturing (ALBEA, EIRE COMPOSITES and SCULPTEO); 30% for shavers (PHILIPS) and industrial modules (VDL).
A key result will be the network of open pilot lines, offering R&T and services supporting process validation and implementation in EU SMEs, Midcaps and large organisations in different sectors, spreading knowledge, awareness and adoption of DIMOFAC Modular Factory Solution.
