Machining 4.0 is an Interreg project comprising of 13 partners across Europe, with Sirris as lead partner. The project has been awarded €2.55m EU funding and it will run between 2018-2021.
The project aims to increase the knowledge level of machining SMEs and transform them into more innovative enterprises by transferring knowledge on innovative technologies, stimulating hands-on experimenting and supporting the transformation process.
IMR will demonstrate how dynamic planning and scheduling can greatly help machining SMEs. To do this, IMR will set up a demonstrator in Mullingar so any company can visit and understand its benefits. IMR also offers, in collaboration with UCD, 15 vouchers of €12.000 to Irish SMEs to transform their production systems.
1000 SMEs will acquire knowledge on innovative machining technologies, 250 SMEs will experiment with new technologies and collaborate with R&D partners, and 50 SMEs will receive intensive business support. This increases the knowledge/innovation level for machining in NWE.
