  • Fine equiaxed dendritic structure of a medium carbon steel cast using
           pulsed magneto-oscillation melt treatment
    • Authors: Jie Sun; Cheng Sheng; Ding-Pu Wang; Jing Zhao; Yun-Hu Zhang; Hong-Gang Zhong; Gui Wang; Qi-jie Zhai
      Abstract: Abstract The application of a pulsed magneto-oscillation (PMO) technique during the solidification of a commercial high melting point medium carbon steel ingot (φ140 mm × 450 mm) produced fully equiaxed grains in the cast ingot, indicating that the PMO process significantly promotes heterogeneous nucleation near the solid-liquid interface. The vigorous convection induced by PMO forced the partly solidified grains to move from the solid-liquid interface and became randomly distributed throughout the melt, which resulted in the formation of uniformly sized equiaxed dendrites throughout the whole ingot. Building on the developed nucleation mechanism and a flow field simulation of pure aluminum, a PMO-induced grain refinement model for steel is proposed.

  • Deep digital maintenance
    • Authors: Harald Rødseth; Per Schjølberg; Andreas Marhaug
      Pages: 299 - 310
      Abstract: Abstract With the emergence of Industry 4.0, maintenance is considered to be a specific area of action that is needed to successfully sustain a competitive advantage. For instance, predictive maintenance will be central for asset utilization, service, and after-sales in realizing Industry 4.0. Moreover, artificial intelligence (AI) is also central for Industry 4.0, and offers data-driven methods. The aim of this article is to develop a new maintenance model called deep digital maintenance (DDM). With the support of theoretical foundations in cyber-physical systems (CPS) and maintenance, a concept for DDM is proposed. In this paper, the planning module of DDM is investigated in more detail with realistic industrial data from earlier case studies. It is expected that this planning module will enable integrated planning (IPL) where maintenance and production planning can be more integrated. The result of the testing shows that both the remaining useful life (RUL) and the expected profit loss indicator (PLI) of ignoring the failure can be calculated for the planning module. The article concludes that further research is needed in testing the accuracy of RUL, classifying PLI for different failure modes, and testing of other DDM modules with industrial case studies.

  • Industry 4.0: a way from mass customization to mass personalization
    • Authors: Yi Wang; Hai-Shu Ma; Jing-Hui Yang; Ke-Sheng Wang
      Pages: 311 - 320
      Abstract: Abstract Although mass customization, which utilizes modularization to simultaneously increase product variety and maintain mass production (MP) efficiency, has become a trend in recent times, there are some limitations to mass customization. Firstly, customers do not participate wholeheartedly in the design phase. Secondly, potential combinations are predetermined by designers. Thirdly, the concept of mass customization is not necessary to satisfy individual requirements and is not capable of providing personalized services and goods. Industry 4.0 is a collective term for technologies and concepts of value chain organization. Based on the technological concepts of radio frequency identification, cyber-physical system, the Internet of things, Internet of service, and data mining, Industry 4.0 will enable novel forms of personalization. Direct customer input to design will enable companies to increasingly produce customized products with shorter cycle-times and lower costs than those associated with standardization and MP. The producer and the customer will share in the new value created. To overcome the gaps between mass customization and mass personalization, this paper presents a framework for mass personalization production based on the concepts of Industry 4.0. Several industrial practices and a lab demonstration show how we can realize mass personalization.

  • Thinking process rules extraction for manufacturing process design
    • Authors: Jing-Tao Zhou; Xiang-Qian Li; Ming-Wei Wang; Rui Niu; Qing Xu
      Pages: 321 - 334
      Abstract: Abstract To realize the reuse of process design knowledge and improve the efficiency and quality of process design, a method for extracting thinking process rules for process design is proposed. An instance representation model of the process planning reflecting the thinking process of technicians is established to achieve an effective representation of the process documents. The related process attributes are extracted from the model to form the related events. The manifold learning algorithm and clustering analysis are used to preprocess the process instance data. A rule extraction mechanism of process design is introduced, which is based on the related events after dimension reduction and clustering, and uses the association rule mining algorithm to realize the similar process information extraction in the same cluster. Through the vectorization description of the related events, the final process design rules are formed. Finally, an example is given to evaluate the method of process design rules extraction.

    • Authors: C. K. M. Lee; S. Z. Zhang; K. K. H. Ng
      Pages: 335 - 343
      Abstract: Abstract Re-industrialization, which supports industrial upgrading and transformation, promotes smart production and high value-added manufacturing processes, and helps to create new momentum for the economic. Under the current situation, industrialists encounter several challenges to achieve re-industrialization. Firstly, the cost and technical thresholds for industrialists to leverage emerging technologies are high. Secondly, there are huge quantities and numerous types of Internet of things (IoT) devices in smart factories, warehouses and offices. The enormous extents of data exchange and communication, management, monitoring and control of IoT devices as well as the establishment and maintenance of a reliable cloud platform hinder industrialists to implement an integrated smart production management. Therefore, to achieve re-industrialization, an industrial Internet of things (IIoT) suite consisting of a micro-services-based IIoT cloud platform and IIoT-based smart hub is proposed, which helps to materialize re-industrialization and to conduct industrial upgrading and transformation to achieve smart production and high value-added manufacturing processes.

  • The fit of Industry 4.0 applications in manufacturing logistics: a
           multiple case study
    • Authors: Jo Wessel Strandhagen; Erlend Alfnes; Jan Ola Strandhagen; Logan Reed Vallandingham
      Pages: 344 - 358
      Abstract: Abstract The fourth industrial revolution, Industry 4.0, is expected to cause disruptive changes in industrial production. It is driven by rapid technological developments and the need for manufacturing companies to make themselves independent of high labor costs. Industry 4.0 concerns several aspects of industrial production, including manufacturing logistics, business models and products and services. The applications of Industry 4.0 have been vastly outlined. However, the fit of Industry 4.0 applications in different production environments is not clear. The purpose of this paper is to identify and investigate the Industry 4.0 technologies that are applicable to manufacturing logistics, and how the production environment influences the applicability of these technologies. This is done through a multiple case study of four Norwegian manufacturing companies. The findings from the study indicate that the applicability of Industry 4.0 in manufacturing logistics is dependent on the production environment. Companies with a low degree of production repetitiveness see less potential in applying Industry 4.0 technologies in manufacturing logistics, while companies with a highly repetitive production see a higher potential.

  • A novel method for the evaluation of fashion product design based on data
    • Authors: Bao-Rui Li; Yi Wang; Ke-Sheng Wang
      Pages: 370 - 376
      Abstract: Abstract It is difficult to qualitatively evaluate the design effects of product appearance. Electroencephalograph (EEG) and eye-tracking data can serve as reflection of the subconscious activities of human beings. The application of advanced neuroscience technology in industrial operation management has become a new research hot spot. This study uses EEG equipment and an eye-tracking device to record a subject’s brain activity and eye-gaze data, and then uses data mining methods to analyze the correlation between the two types of signals. The fuzzy theory is then applied to create a fuzzy comprehensive evaluation model. The neural attributes are used to quantify the factors affected by product appearance and evaluation indicators. We use women’s shirts as research subjects for a case study. The EEG Emotiv device and Tobii mobile eye-tracking glasses are used to record a subject’s brain activity and eye-gaze data in order to quantify the evaluation factors related to product appearance. This method not only scientifically evaluates the uniqueness of product appearance but also provides an objective reference for improving product appearance design.

           machine centers: Industry 4.0 scenario
    • Authors: Zhe Li; Yi Wang; Ke-Sheng Wang
      Pages: 377 - 387
      Abstract: Abstract Fault diagnosis and prognosis in mechanical systems have been researched and developed in the last few decades at a very rapid rate. However, owing to the high complexity of machine centers, research on improving the accuracy and reliability of fault diagnosis and prognosis via data mining remains a prominent issue in this field. This study investigates fault diagnosis and prognosis in machine centers based on data mining approaches to formulate a systematic approach and obtain knowledge for predictive maintenance in Industry 4.0 era. We introduce a system framework based on Industry 4.0 concepts, which includes the process of fault analysis and treatment for predictive maintenance in machine centers. The framework includes five modules: sensor selection and data acquisition module, data preprocessing module, data mining module, decision support module, and maintenance implementation module. Furthermore, a case study is presented to illustrate the application of the data mining methods for fault diagnosis and prognosis in machine centers as an Industry 4.0 scenario.

  • Impact of Industry 4.0 in service oriented firm
    • Authors: Wladimir Bodrow
      Pages: 394 - 400
      Abstract: Abstract The first part of this study is devoted to concepts, approaches and some examples of the fourth industrial revolution. The basis of this revolution also well known as Industry 4.0 builds so called cyber-physical systems. They contain the integrated smart software systems including the internet address to enable the communication with environment as for product itself as for means of production and employees. All these enable the next level of efficiency and flexibility for both organizing and controlling of the value-creation chain over the whole lifecycle of products. In the first three chapters several Internet references and documents published by German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy were used. Because of multiple cross references in documents, this report is written without detailed references in each paragraph of mentioned chapters. The last three chapters of the research presented undertake the short review of interdependencies between the Industry 4.0 and the well-known approach of computer-supported-cooperative-work established in the late 1980s. Long list of publications can be found in Wikipedia, and in many proceedings of ACM conferences on computer supported cooperative work (CSCW).

  • Hybrid laser/arc welding of thick high-strength steel in different
    • Authors: M. Mazar Atabaki; N. Yazdian; R. Kovacevic
      Abstract: Abstract In this investigation, hybrid laser/arc welding (HLAW) was employed to join 8-mm-thick high-strength quenched and tempered steel (HSQTS) plates in the butt- and T-joint configurations. The influences of welding parameters, such as laser power, welding speed, stand-off distance (SD) between the arc of gas metal arc welding, and the laser heat source on the weld quality and mechanical properties of joints, were studied to obtain non-porous and crack-free fully-penetrated welds. The weld microstructure, cross-section, and mechanical properties were evaluated by an optical microscope, and microhardness and tensile tests. In addition, a finite element model was developed to investigate the thermal history and molten pool geometry of the HLAW process to join the HSQTS. The numerical study demonstrated that the SD had a paramount role in good synergy between the heat sources and the stability of the keyhole. For the butt-joint configuration, the results showed that, at a higher welding speed (35 mm/s) and optimum SD between the arc and laser, a fully-penetrated sound weld could be achieved. A non-porous weld in the T-joint configuration was obtained at a lower welding speed (10 mm/s). Microstructural evaluations indicated that the formation of residual austenite and the continuous network of martensitic structure along the grain boundary through the heat affected zone were the primary reasons of the softening behavior of this area. This was confirmed by the sharp hardness reduction and failure behavior of the tensile coupons in this area.

  • Evaluation and analysis of cutting speed, wire wear ratio, and dimensional
           deviation of wire electric discharge machining of super alloy Udimet-L605
           using support vector machine and grey relational analysis
    • Authors: Somvir Singh Nain; Dixit Garg; Sanjeev Kumar
      Abstract: Abstract The current study investigates the behavior of wire electric discharge machining (WEDM) of the super alloy Udimet-L605 by employing sophisticated machine learning approaches. The experimental work was designed on the basis of the Taguchi orthogonal L27 array, considering six explanatory variables and evaluating their influences on the cutting speed, wire wear ratio (WWR), and dimensional deviation (DD). A support vector machine (SVM) algorithm using a normalized poly-kernel and a radial-basis flow kernel is recommended for modeling the wire electric discharge machining process. The grey relational analysis (GRA) approach was utilized to obtain the optimal combination of process variables simultaneously, providing the desirable outcome for the cutting speed, WWR, and DD. Scanning electron microscope and energy dispersive X-ray analyses of the samples were performed for the confirmation of the results. An SVM based on the radial-basis kernel model dominated the normalized poly-kernel model. The optimal combination of process variables for a mutually desirable outcome for the cutting speed, WWR, and DD was determined as T on1, T off2, I P1, WT3, SV1, and WF3. The pulse-on time is the significant variable influencing the cutting speed, WWR, and DD. The largest percentage of copper (8.66%) was observed at the highest cutting speed setting of the machine compared to 7.05% of copper at the low cutting speed setting of the machine.

  • An approach to net-centric control automation of technological processes
           within industrial IoT systems
    • Authors: Nikita Voinov; Igor Chernorutsky; Pavel Drobintsev; Vsevolod Kotlyarov
      Abstract: Abstract The use of industrial internet networks with net-centric control is the driving trend behind the future material manufacturing of goods and services. The promising future of this approach is provided by these complex net-centric systems functioning with high reliability. The problem of intelligent net-centric control and reliable network functioning is fundamental, with the additional requirement that the system should preserve stakeholder security and privacy according to policies. The issue is that such systems are characterized by complex multi-parameter operability modes controlled by various criteria. This study considers an approach to providing reliable management of complicated Internet of things (IoT) systems. This is achieved by solving multi-criteria tasks over many processes of various physical natures. Corresponding methods of hierarchical decomposition of multi-criteria tasks, process levels of multi-criteria optimization, specifics of aggregation levels, and the master equation of the optimization process are described.

  • Effect of machining parameters on edge-chipping during drilling of glass
           using grinding-aided electrochemical discharge machining (G-ECDM)
    • Authors: V. G. Ladeesh; R. Manu
      Abstract: Abstract The problem of eliminating edge-chipping at the entrance and exit of the hole while drilling brittle materials is still a challenging task in different industries. Grinding-aided electrochemical discharge machining (G-ECDM) is a promising technology for drilling advanced hard-to-machine ceramics, glass, composites, and other brittle materials. Edge-chipping at the entrance of the hole can be fully eliminated by optimizing the machining parameters of G-ECDM. However, edge-chipping at the exit of the hole is difficult to eliminate during the drilling of ceramics and glass. This investigation suggests some practical ways to reduce edge-chipping at the exit of the hole. For this purpose, a three-dimensional finite element model was developed, and a coupled field analysis was conducted to study the effect of four parameters, i.e., cutting depth, support length, applied voltage, and pulse-on time, on the maximum normal stress in the region where the edge-chipping initiates. The model is capable of predicting the edge-chipping thickness, and the results predicted by the model are in close agreement with the experiment results. This investigation recommends the use of a low voltage and low pulse-on time at the hole entrance and exit when applying G-ECDM to reduce the edge-chipping thickness. Moreover, the use of a full rigid support in the form of a base plate or sacrificial plate beneath the workpiece can postpone the initiation of chipping by providing support when the tool reaches the bottom layer of the workpiece, thereby reducing the edge-chipping thickness.

  • Surface texture formation in precision machining of direct laser deposited
           tungsten carbide
    • Authors: Szymon Wojciechowski; Zbigniew Nowakowski; Radomir Majchrowski; Grzegorz Królczyk
      Abstract: Abstract This paper focuses on an analysis of the surface texture formed during precision machining of tungsten carbide. The work material was fabricated using direct laser deposition (DLD) technology. The experiment included precision milling of tungsten carbide samples with a monolithic torus cubic boron nitride tool and grinding with diamond and alumina cup wheels. An optical surface profiler was applied to the measurements of surface textures and roughness profiles. In addition, the micro-geometry of the milling cutter was measured with the application of an optical device. The surface roughness height was also estimated with the application of a model, which included kinematic-geometric parameters and minimum uncut chip thickness. The research revealed the occurrence of micro-grooves on the machined surface. The surface roughness height calculated on the basis of the traditional kinematic-geometric model was incompatible with the measurements. However, better agreement between the theoretical and experimental values was observed for the minimum uncut chip thickness model.

  • Optimization of rollover stability for a three-wheeler vehicle
    • Authors: S. A. Sree Ram; P. Raja; K. Sreedaran
      Abstract: Abstract An auto rickshaw is a three-wheeled motor vehicle commonly found in Asia, with one front steering wheel and two driven wheels at the back. In automobiles, suspension is used to keep the wheels planted during motion. The trailing arm suspension generally found in Indian automobiles has its roll center on the ground. The vehicle’s center of gravity is above the ground, which creates a moment during vehicle turning known as the roll moment. When this roll moment exceeds a certain limit, the vehicle becomes unstable. Roll rate can be expressed as degrees per lateral acceleration of the vehicle’s sprung mass, and is influenced by factors such as wheel rate, motion ratio, and suspension rate. In order to determine an optimized three-wheeler suspension setup, a matrix selection method was used, in which every available suspension type in the market is rated based on selected suspension parameters such as handling, dynamics, and simplicity. From the overall weightage, each suspension type is analyzed and the most appropriate is selected. In order to achieve the objective of improving the overall rollover stability, certain modifications have been applied in the selected suspension design. Generally, if the roll rate of a specific vehicle axle is high, the percentage of weight transfer on the axle will also be high. By improving roll stiffness, the amount of roll can be decreased, and by optimizing the motion ratio, the roll moment can be controlled, thereby increasing the overall rollover stability.

  • Recognition results classification and post-processing methods for painted
           characters on billet surface
    • Authors: Qi-Jie Zhao; Chun-Hui Huang; Zhen-Nan Ke; Jin-Gang Yi
      Abstract: Abstract Automatic identification of characters marked on billets is very important for steelworks to achieve manufacturing and logistics informatization management. Due to the presence of adhesions, fractures, blurs, and other problems in characters painted on billets, character recognition accuracy with machine vision is relatively low, and hardly meets practical application requirements. To make the character recognition results more reliable and accurate, an identification results classification and post-processing method has been proposed in this paper. By analyzing issues in the image segmentation and recognition stage, the recognition result classification model, based on character encoding rules and recognition confidence, is built, and the character recognition results can be classified as correct, suspect, or wrong. In the post-processing stage, a human-machine-cooperation mechanism with a post-processing interface is designed to eliminate error information in suspect and wrong types. The system was developed and experiments conducted with images acquired in an iron and steel factory. The results show the character recognition accuracy to be approximately 89% using the character recognizer. However, this result cannot be directly applied in information management systems. With the proposed post-processing method, a human worker will query the suspect and wrong results classified by the system, determine whether the result is correct or wrong, and then, correct the wrong result through the post-processing interface. Using this method, the character recognition accuracy ultimately improves to 99.4%. Thus, the results will be more reliable applied in a practical system.

  • Haptic and visual augmented reality interface for programming welding
    • Authors: D. Ni; A. W. W. Yew; S. K. Ong; A. Y. C. Nee
      Abstract: Abstract It is a challenging task for operators to program a remote robot for welding manipulation depending only on the visual information from the remote site. This paper proposes an intuitive user interface for programming welding robots remotely using augmented reality (AR) with haptic feedback. The proposed system uses a depth camera to reconstruct the surfaces of workpieces. A haptic input device is used to allow users to define welding paths along these surfaces. An AR user interface is developed to allow users to visualize and adjust the orientation of the welding torch. Compared with the traditional robotic welding path programming methods which rely on prior CAD models or contact between the robot end-effector and the workpiece, this proposed approach allows for fast and intuitive remote robotic welding path programming without prior knowledge of CAD models of the workpieces. The experimental results show that the proposed approach is a user-friendly interface and can assist users in obtaining an accurate welding path.

  • Effect of flow control mold on flow field during high-speed continuous
    • Authors: Zhan Yu; Zheng-Qiang Zhang; Zhong-Ming Ren
      Abstract: Abstract An experimental mold was built to study the flow in a flow control mold under high speed continuous casting. The effect of the magnetic field on the flow was investigated using mercury. The results show that the magnetic field can not only dampen the flow of liquid metal but also change its direction, and then redistribute the flow in the mold. When maintaining a constant distance between magnets, the fluctuation of the free surface is dampened because of the increasing magnetic flux density. The flow at the free surface is improved, and the penetration depth of the downward stream is reduced. The decrease in the distance between magnets promotes the brake effect and the flow is dampened in the upper eddy.
