V okviru projekta Povezovanje simulacij, strojev in orodij za optimizacijo procesa proizvodnje polimernih izdelkov (CoSiMa) parterji posvečamo pozornost tudi simulaciji temperaturnega obnašanja dvognezdnega orodja med izdelavo plastičnega izdelka.

The Energy Globe Award is one of the most prestigious environmental prizes received by the projects focusing on energy efficiency, renewable energy and resource conservation. Awards are granted on national and international level. Among the national winners for 2020 is LIFE CEPLAFIB project, coordinated by Slovenian research centre TECOS.

Kako lahko za tretjino vrednosti investicije v novo proizvodno linijo podaljšate življenjsko dobo obstoječe za 15 let? Odgovor se skriva v protokolih in strategijah za podaljšanje življenjske dobe kapitalskih naložb in velike industrijske opreme, ki jih s partnerji razvijamo v okviru projekta LEVEL-UP.

LIFE BioTHOP project addresses the challenge of developing a new cross-sector value chain to produce biodegradable, compostable and recyclable products with enhanced environmental sustainability and mechanical functionality. These new bioplastic products will compete with the fossil-based counterparts in terms of price by utilising low cost waste-derived hop fillers; in mechanical functionality, through the use of a composite approach; and in sustainability terms, through the vertical energy integration of mass site production pathways.

Two of the first results of the SAMANTHA project (Skills in Additive MANufacturing for the Toolmaking and HAbitat Sectors) are a project leaflet and a report in which the partners identify what technical knowledge and cross-related skills are desirable in employee training curricula and whether the current training offer is in line with labor market needs. 

LIFE BioTHOP project, in which TECOS is participating as a project partner, announces the first photo contest, through which you can win some practical awards. The thematic of this competition is HOPS & ENVIRONMENT, which covers the importance of the sustainable production for our beautiful and healthy environment and the co-existence of the agriculture, residents and animals.

From September 2019 until April 2020 partners of SAMANTHA project: Skills in Additive MANufacturing for the Toolmaking and HAbitat Sectors will be involved in the realization of the first intellectual product of the project. Specifically, in a report on the situation and evolution of additive Manufacturing in the toolmaking and Habitat sectors and related VET training offer: high-tech T-shaped skills and competences in different occupations (mismatches).

As part of the ADMA (European Advanced Manufacturing Support Center) project, of which TECOS is also a partner, three Learning Network events will be organized in March to showcase the latest technologies within the Factories of the Future. Participation is mainly recommended for directors and executives.

The kick off meeting of the project SAMANTHA took place between 24th and 25th September 2019 in Karlsruhe at KIT (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology), Germany. 

Environmental Summit was held on the 7th of November, 2019 at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia in Ljubljana. The meeting has a tradition of more than 20 years, and it has a rich professional program and a diverse selection of local and foreign speakers. The emphasis of the program held on the presentation of good and environmentally friendly practices in Slovenian companies.

TECOS, Slovenian Tool and Die Development Centre has presented the latests results of LIFE CEPLAFIB on the 17th International Waste Management and Landfill Symposium, held from the 30th September to 4th of October, 2019, in Sardinia, Italy.

The European Commission has launched an importan pan-European project to establish a European Advanced Manufacturing (ADMA) Support Centre to help SMEs assess the possibility of adopting advanced manufacturing solutions and transforming their organisation towards next-generation factories with more competitive, modern and sustainable production.

The third project meeting within the LIFE CEPLAFIB consortium was held between on 11th and 12th of July, 2019. It was organized by our industrial partner ADRIA MOBIL, which is responsible for the implementation of final prototype products for the automotive sector.

Sample Project

Quickly to precise 3D model of a mill for manufacturing of replacement parts

Quickly to precise 3D model of a mill for manufacturing of replacement parts

The client had to renew a wore down rotor with knife segments for which they didn't have any documentation. With precise 3D scanning of the original and creation of functional CAD model we provided them with data for production of replacement.

Thermoplastic oil filter housing warpage prediction due to injection moulding

Thermoplastic oil filter housing warpage prediction due to injection moulding

The customer has presumed problems with excessive warpage in the stage of tool design. The material is PA66 with 30% of glass fibers. With the help of advanced injection moulding analysis we predicted the trend and values of warpage and thus successfully eliminated the problems.

Analysis of Deep Drawing Process

Analysis of Deep Drawing Process

Our client has planned a single phase deep drawing process for the presented case, however several doubts about manufacturability arose. The conducted analysis has cleared all doubts.

With Autodesk Advanced Material Exchange and Abaqus to precise results of structural FEM for fiber reinforced materials

With Autodesk Advanced Material Exchange and Abaqus to precise results of structural FEM for fiber reinforced materials

We made a comparative study between experimentaly and numerically determined strength of a fibre reinforced product, which yielded extremely good match of the results from both methods.
