Models of hardening simulation by induction for improvement of components in the renewable energy sector

START: 09/2018

OPEN
The offered thesis is part of the renewable energy sector, in which the reliability of the systems is a key point of competitiveness. The improvement of the reliability of the components is linked to the correct estimation of the state of the pieces due to the manufacturing process to improve their mechanical properties. The main objective is to develop simulation models to calculate the residual stresses generated in the process of induction hardening. These stresses affect...

Spare parts management aftermarket maintenance

START: 09/2018

OPEN
The product manufacturing companies are facing the decision to address, in a strategic way, the path that allows them to offer services to their customers and achieve recurring income and benefits that are not achieved in the sale of products. Among these services, one of the most important is the maintenance of the products sold, where they have a large park after many years of sale. The way to approach the services, besides representing a challenge as an organizational transformation,...

Flexible robotic system geared towards the inspection of surface integration

START: 10/2018

OPEN
Inspections for monitoring the manufacture of parts are unavoidable in industry. This is an area where, even today, inspection is being done manually, either through using penetrant liquids or magnetic-particle methods depending on the manufactured part. In any case, it concerns inspections which are not only completely manual but are also subjective, that"s to say, dependent on the operator performing the inspection.
