Joining forces to influence standardisation

The results of professional studies dedicated to transmission shafts in lifting equipment led to the completion of the draft standard EN 13001-3-8 “Cranes - General Design - Limit States - Shafts”. This is a prime example of the value of collective work in this field.

How can you contribute to the development of a standard so that it is in line with your needs upon publication? Through collective work! A prime example of this is the draft standard EN 13001-3-8 “Cranes - General Design - Limit States - Shafts” which recently passed the CEN’s (European Committee for Standardisation) investigation with flying colours. This draft standard which sets out the conditions, instructions and general methods making it possible, via the design and theoretical verification, to avoid the mechanical risks on cranes, stems from of a collective approach. As a matter of fact, its development, which was initiated in 2017, is based on the results of many studies undertaken at the request of Cetim’s “Handling, lifting and storage” professional commission for over 15 years. Standard EN 13001-3-8 is scheduled to be published in early 2020.

An international presence

Cetim plays a prominent role in the French standardisation work for the mechanical engineering sector providing over 50% of the budget for the Union de normalisation de la mécanique(UNM - French mechanical engineering standardisation office) and constant technological support with over 210 seats held by its experts in national and international commissions.

Presentation

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
