Description and objectives:
The FAR project aims at researching and developing of high-value grinding technologies to meet the new challenges of precision, productivity, versatility, reliability, integrity and stability presented strategic sectors for the economy such as aeronautics, railroads, power generations and automotive.
To this end, the initiative addresses the development of grinding technologies focuses on four areas of action: machine, components, Digital Grinding and processes.
The main objectives of the project are:
- In the process area, work will be carried out on the development of a new variable speed application technology, on the grinding of HVOF coatings with complex geometry, on peel grinding and on the grinding of curved gears.
- In the machine area, thermally dynamically stable structures as well as multitasking grinding machine concepts will be achieved.
- Advances in Digital Grinding are also expected with the integration of in-process NDT inspection, hybrid expert systems and advanced HMI.
- Finally, progress will be made in the development of new peripherals and components such as in-process multicount diameter gauges, precision rulers, intelligent heads and quick reference change solutions.
