We are a group of over 80 European companies, working together for several years with the objective of democratizing CAx technologies for: a) the product development, b) additive manufacturing, and c) productions processes.
The aim of CloudFlow was to enable engineers to access services in the Cloud, spanning domains such as CAD, CAM, CAE (CFD), Systems and PLM, and combining them to integrated workflows leveraging HPC resources. CloudFlow wants to contribute to a wider adaption of Cloud-based platforms, making them a practical option for manufacturing companies. Within the project, several European SMEs were involved with the objective of boosting their competitiveness by means of cloud-based solutions for the product development.
The objective of CAxMan is to establish Cloud-based toolboxes, workflows, and a one-stop-shop for CAx-technologies supporting the design, simulation and process planning for additive manufacturing. Analysis-based process planning for Additive Manufacturing including thermal and stress aspects, and their interoperability with the design phase are key technology aspects within the project. Within the project, several European SMEs are involved with the objective of boosting their competitiveness by means of cloud-based solutions for additive manufacturing.
The mission of CloudiFacturing is to optimize production processes and producibility using Cloud/HPC-based modelling and simulation, leveraging online factory data and advanced data analytics; thus, contributing to the competitiveness and resource efficiency of manufacturing SMEs, ultimately fostering the vision of Factories 4.0 and the circular economy. Within the project, several European SMEs are involved with the objective of boosting their competitiveness by means of cloud-based solutions for production processes.
