Skills in Additive MANufacturing for the Toolmaking and HAbitat Sectors - SAMANTHA

SAMANTHA project wants to anticipate with this up/reskilling strategy, especially in VET (Vocational Education and Training) field because the current European VET offer has to respond to such challenges and take advantage of great opportunities ahead as the gap that exists in the Toolmaking and Habitat sector.

Project description:

SAMANTHA project wants to anticipate with this up/reskilling strategy, especially in VET (Vocational Education and Training) field because the current European VET offer has to respond to such challenges and take advantage of great opportunities ahead as the gap that exists in the Toolmaking and Habitat sector. For this reason, SAMANTHA aims to develop a novel training program addressing the mismatched high-tech T-shaped skills for proper implementation of AM in the value chains of such sectors through high qualified workers.

Project partners will develop and test 5 Intellectual Outputs (IO) over the project period:
• IO1- Create flexible learning pathways and didactic tools based on the learning outcomes approach, able to provide, assess and recognize the key competences identified in target groups.
• IO2- To ensure good alignment of VET programmes with the requirements of the Toolmaking industry and Habitat sector regarding AM.
• IO3- To boost the Digital Transformation and the Smart Industrial Specialisation of these manufacturing sectors with a competent implementation of AM in their value chains.
• IO4- To increase competitiveness and productivity of these sectors with a continuous up/re-skilling of the workforce with the required high-tech T-shaped skills needed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
• IO5- To raise awareness and to improve the image of KETs and STEM graduates in society as a field to work in.

TECOS's role:

TECOS role in the SAMANTHA project is to primary cover the Toolmaking sector during the development of intellectual outputs and to provide adequate dissemination among their members that come from Toolmaking sector. Among that, TECOS will help to strengthen needed key skills and competences through up/re-skilling of the current workers of the Toolmaking industry and Habitat sector (continuous VET) and students willing to focus on their professional careers in such sectors (initial VET).

This project has been funded with support from the European Commission. For more information stay tuned on the website of the project.

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.
