Abstract
Shortening of delivery times, increasing the number of product variants, individualisation of customers' demands, and more and more complex products lead to the conception of ever more intelligent, flexible and integrated manufacturing systems, which demand an interdisciplinary approach and good connections among research organisations and production enterprises. Time to production has to be heavily shortened. Therefore, in the present project proposal, we propose an interdisciplinary approach for solving research and development as well as production problems. Our research aims to: Development and production of prototypes and forming tools by use of rapid prototyping and vacuum casting, development and production of prototypes and tools for injection moulding of plastics, thermoforming and rotational casting by use of rapid prototyping and high-speed cutting, optimisation of surface roughness of products and tools by use of genetic methods and neural networks, prediction of production costs for forming tools by use of evolutionary and genetic algorithms, introduction of reverse engineering into the production of forming tools and prototypes. Results of the proposed project will be transferred into the production environment as well as into the studying process.
Significance for science
The results (solutions) obtained during execution of our programme showed that they have high scientific meaning because they include development and the usage the state-of-the-art technologies for manufacturing of products (e.g., additive manufacturing technologies, laser technologies, advanced CNC-machines and peripheral devices, intelligent robotic cells, cooperative robots) and for the control of complex manufacturing systems. Also the more international established research institutions and the advanced enterprises devote a lot of financial means for development of such advanced technologies. Our research programme was also oriented towards development and the usage of the state-of-the-art methodology for modelling and optimization of systems/processes mostly with some of the artificial intelligence approaches including artificial neural networks (ANN), different evolutionary algorithms (genetic programming - GP, genetic algorithms - GA), swarm intelligence (particle swarm optimization - PSO, artificial bee colony algorithm - ABC, ant colony optimization - ACO, gravitational search algorithm - GSA), fuzzy logic, hybrid methods, and approaches for multi-objective optimization (e.g., NSGA-II algorithm). A part of our research has a strong interdisciplinary character as it integrates advanced solutions in the fields of additive manufacturing technologies and the medical applications (e.g., development of biocompatible and orthopedic implants by the additive manufacturing technologies). Our scientific achievement can be seen in the development of opto-electronic control system of the milling process, which will adapt cutting parameters during machining based on the visual process control and measurement of forces. Voice control and intelligent machine control will enable optimizing, alarming and stopping of the process in case of abnormal operating conditions. By making the simulator we will prove in an original way that it is possible with multi-loop compensation of cutting parameters monitoring the quality of machined surface, tool condition and ensuring optimal machining. Simulator for testing the control algorithms will be in conjunction with developed software important from a scientific perspective, since it represents the most advanced technology for the development of autonomous manufacturing systems. The research results in the field of hydraulic power technology are a part of global research achievements, as evidenced by numerous publications in reputable international journals with high impact factor and number of citations. Of special importance are research activities related to understanding the ageing mechanisms of different types of hydraulic fluids and their interactions. Of particular importance is the search for new hydraulic fluids with specific physico-chemical properties that would eliminate the problems related to the fluids used today, and thus remain at the forefront of research and development in its research field,
Significance for the country
The solutions achieved have the following social and economic impact: - Increase of the technological level of the collaborative Slovenian companies, shortening of the time-to-market, rationalization of production costs, and achievement of the environment-friendly production were reached, - Increase of the technological level of the Slovenian society and the improvement of the life quality index, - Shift towards post-industrial society based on high technologies and knowledge (information society, society of knowledge, etc.), - Increase of recognition and reputation of Slovenia in the world through the international scientific and economic collaboration (our programme group collaborate with more than 50 top-ranked international universities, companies, institutes and associations), - International exchange of researches, lectures, and students through various projects and programmes decreased the gap between the domestic knowledge and the knowledge in the world's more developed countries, - Participation on international scientific conferences and symposiums intensified international collaboration, - Our programme group organized international scientific conferences and workshops in the field of additive manufacturing technologies; thus internationally-recognized researches visited Slovenia which intensified dissemination of knowledge, - The international scientific journal published quarterly by our institution increases the reputation of the faculty, university and the state of Slovenia.
