ALSO 4.0 (Automated Laser Scanner Operations)
Fincantieri S.p.A. is Lead Partner of ALSO 4.0 (Automated Laser Scanner Operations) a Research and Development project in the field of Maritime Technologies. The project is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and in the framework of Regional Operational Program (2014-2020) of the Italian Region Friuli Venezia Giulia, Objective “Investments to support Growth and Employment Objective 2014-2020”, Axis 1 – “Strengthening research, technological development and innovation”, Action 1.3 – “Support of collaborative R&D activities for the development of new sustainable technologies, products and services”.
ALSO 4.0 started on the 1st February 2020. The project focuses on the research and development of optoelectronic systems based on the LASER technology. The aim is to realize a prototype for three-dimensional measurement of blocks and sections of ships.
The technology will allow digitalizing some of the manual processes related to controlling the shape and dimensional quality-compliance of the hull-blocks and sections, the flatness tolerance of the surfaces and the dimensional compliance of special products and components.
The project will contribute to enhance the performances of the productive and design systems: firstly, by reducing the time needed to collect and analyze data, secondly by giving the possibility to provide real time feedbacks to the offices working upstream in the process. Moreover, it will be possible to facilitate the production and the storage of the digital test reports.
PROJECT DURATION: 27 months
BUDGET: € 734,106.46
FUNDED CONTRIBUTION: € 475,926.79
PARTNERSHIP: Fincantieri S.p.A. (Lead partner), Marinelab doo, Studio Zerouno S.r.l., Università degli Studi di Udine, Università degli Studi di Trieste.
