ERTRAC Global Competitiveness Working Group posted this Technology CallSeeking research & innovation centres of excellence in advanced manufacturing technologiesKey for the European automotive industry will be to keep the production within Europe. Enabler for this are novel manufacturing technologies allowing for flexible manufacturing of customised products down to small or medium-size volume. It will be important that such technologies become also feasible for low-cost segments. We are looking for academic centers of excellence capable for future fundamental research on: • Qualifying additive manufacturing for safety-critical automotive parts • Inline control concepts improving quality parts (zero deficient parts) • Flexible manufacturing and assembly lines by utilizing advanced human-machine interactions (robot assisted manufacturing, integration of mobile robots in assembly lines) • Advanced manufacturing technologies for multi-material parts and smart materials
Haier posted this Technology CallSeeking for technologies to reduce frozen meat gravy lossFor current refrigerators, meat and frozen foods are stored under low temperatures (-18℃) for longer preservation. However, after certain period, due to temperature fluctuation (caused by the on-and-off actions of the compressor and defrost, etc.) and sweeping of cold air flow (in air cooled refrigerators), frozen meat may lose water. For example, water on meat surface is removed and food cell is pierced through by ice crystals. Once the meat is thawed, there will be a large amount blood and the meat will taste hard or bad. This will have negative impact on meat quality. To further improve frozen food quality, we are now seeking for a new solution that could be applied on refrigerator products.
