EFFORT 4.0 - Advanced and energy EFFicient digital architecture for components and products manufacturing, based on new sensORs, and prepared to exTreme industrial environments

 

Consortium

 

effort 4.0

 

EFFORT 4.0, is a R+D+i project funded by the Basque Hazitek 2018 programme, oriented to Artificial Intelligence and advanced sensors development to be applied im forging and foundry industrial processes

 

EFFORT 4.0 will strengthen Basque industry, critically collaborating to improve Basque industrial fabric competitivity, due to the participation of Basque Country leading companies representing a big portion of industry. ALCORTA is the leader of EFFORT 4.0 project, and being a international model company forging metallic components for the automotive sector, and having a big R&D experience

Enterprise consortium is multidisciplinar and composed of Basque leading enterprises and world referents in forging and foundry, inclidung specialists in ITC and Energy:

  • Forging and Foundry: CIE AUTOMOTIVE, ULMA PIPING, FUCHOSA, ALINAR y SIFE
  • ITC: LARRAIOZ, EKIDE, ULMA EMBEDDED, DOMINION, AYS, INGETEK y TITANIUM
  • Energy efficiency: CEIBER

All of them will collaborate to develop the new architecture and energy efficient production processes.

Enterprise consortium will benefit from the scientific and technologic collaboration of 9 Basque technology agents from the Basque Science, Technology and Innovation Network (RVCTI): IK4-AZTERLAN, IKERGUNE, UNIVERSIDAD DE DEUSTO, MONDRAGON UNIBERTSITATEA (MGEP), VICOMTECH, DOMINION I+D, ACE4C, CIE R&D e IK4-IKERLAN.

EFFORT 4.0 project perfectly fits on Sife mission, as 3 consortium enterprises (ALCORTA, CIE AUTOMOTIVE y ULMA PIPING) are members of the Association. EFFORT 4.0 performs a research in industry 4.0 paradigm for the forging and foundry sectors and develops predictive models. That is a world innovation, not existing any technological precedent in those sectors, allowing the enterprise competitivity increasing (Sife main objective).
