AIT: Digital Assistance Systems For Process Optimisation in Continuous Aluminium Casting

casting machine

Aluminium as well as other light metals play a crucial role in achieving the climate targets since they are necessary for lightweight yet robust vehicle components. At the same time, their production and processing require high amounts of energy. However, the energy efficiency of these processes can be greatly improved by establishing cyber physical systems (CPS).

RISC & LCM: Reengineering: Ingenieurslösung erstrahlt durch Web-Portierung in neuem Glanz

Ein bekanntes Sprichwort sagt: „Nichts ist so beständig wie der Wandel“ (Heraklit von Ephesus). Das gilt natürlich auch für Software und insbesondere für dessen Benutzeroberflächen. Diese Anwendungen verschieben sich zunehmend in Richtung Web-Technologien, weil sie dadurch ohne Installation für einen breiten Anwender:innenkreis auf allen Plattformen zur Verfügung stehen. Auch erfolgreiche Desktop-Anwendungen müssen sich diesem Modernisierungsdruck stellen, da sie sonst Gefahr laufen, nicht weiter verwendet zu werden, und damit die Ressourcen für Weiterentwicklungen verlieren.

AIT: On the way to climate-friendly utility vehicles

The transport sector accounts for 30 per cent of CO2 emissions, making it one of the biggest pollution sources. Action is needed not just in private transport, but for municipal and commercial vehicles too. The recently concluded eCVT project led to the development of an electrified drive concept that not only successfully prevents emissions but also increases efficiency at the same time.
