Assisting companies with all their digital transformation projects

During the Global Industrieevent, Cetim and its partners will use concrete examples to present their offers intended to help companies to achieve their digital transformation.

No matter their projects or their level of maturity regarding digital transformation, companies will have the opportunity to discover the tailor-made solutions offered by Cetim and its partners during Global Industrie2019. 

At stand No. 4N125, Cetim’s experts will present our support services provided to companies in conjunction with our partners, among which Siemens, a world leader in production digitalisation technologies. A comprehensive package, from the implementation of a project to modernise their production tool to a general reflection on their future and market positioning, including the integration of the technological bricks of the industry of the future

Advanced NDT at Midest

These technological bricks will be showcased on many occasions during the whole trade fair. At Midest2019, Cetim Grand Est (on the CCI Grand Est space, stand No. 5B114) will give a demonstration of non-destructive testing based on the phased array ultrasonic testing technology. Such an imaging technology can be used either on metals or on composite materials and features many advantages, among which: time saving and improved accuracy when compared to conventional ultrasonic testing, better detection of flaws in the parts and possibility to test parts with complex shapes, etc.

Carnot Institutes: focus on additive manufacturing

In the “Village 3D” at Industrie Lyon, stand No. 4E80, run by the Carnot Institute, will be dedicated to another technological brick of the future: additive manufacturing. The agenda will include pragmatic solutions focused around the needs and objectives of industrial manufacturers, such as diagnosis, design and redesign of parts to make the most of the available technology, evaluation of solutions, testing and validation, characterisation of materials and parts, assistance to project owners, integration of new resources, management for change and transfer of skills. Last but not least, many demonstrators of technical solutions implemented by the Carnot Institutes will also be presented.

Mastering various types of materials (metallic, polymer, composite...) and their particular implementation through processing and assembly processes is the very base of mechanical engineering industry. The technologies used in this sector gradually evolve but remain critical for everybody.
This technological focus includes projects relating to : virtual simulation of manufacturing processes, implementation of innovative manufacturing processes or improvement of existing ones, innovative assembly processes (mechanical ones, but also processes using adhesive bonding or welding), characterization and definition of using conditions for new materials (metallic or non-metallic ones) and nanostructured materials or surfaces.

Hot topics

To help the mechanical engineering industry to anticipate and make the best strategic choices, Cetim, with support from its partners, has identified 53 technologies which are considered as priorities for the mechanical engineering sector for 2020.

  1. Micro-fabrication
  2. Agile and adaptive manufacturing systems
  3. Nanofilled elastomers
  4. Integration of robots during production
  5. Near Net Shape forming methods
  6. Light and titanium alloys
  7. Superalloys and ultrahigh performance steels
  8. Thermoplastic composites
  9. Welding of high-performance materials
  10. Multi-material joining
