NSERC CANRIMT Advanced Research Project

Memex is working with a consortium of universities in advanced research on monitoring and controlling machining processes for manufacturing automation.  NSERC has announced this project for CANRIMT (Canadian Network for Research and Innovation in Machining Technology), see the web site.

This project is focused on modeling, analysis, monitoring and control of machining processes for manufacturing automation. The group is led by mechanical engineer Dr. Yusuf Altintas of the University of British Columbia, and involves Dr. Allan Spence from McMaster University, as well as Ecole Polytechnique and leading private sector companies in the industry. The analysis and deliverables will involve specialized algorithms working with Memex’s Ax9150 Universal Machine Interface hardware board as a component in monitoring and controlling the machines.

Memex Working with Consortium of Universities on Dynamic Computer Aided Machining (DCAM) Project

Memex announces that it has been awarded a significant grant to work on a state of the industry dynamic computer aided machining (DCAM) project in a consortium with leading universities, aerospace companies and industry partners. This is a five year grant from NSERC and will have Memex’s Ax9150 hardware board as a key component in delivering results. The benefits of this project are to improve quality in the final pass of machining, so as reduce by 50% the cycle time, minimizing broken tools, increase efficiency overall by 35% and provide an accurate audit validation trail. This validates Memex’s position as a leading technology supplier to the machining industry working with the top universites, such as McMaster in delivering advanced products for manufacturing efficiency.
