With their new FreiForm initiative Schaeffler Technologies, mircoTEC, Lust Hybrid, nanotron Technologies, GED, AMIC, Fraunhofer IZM and TU Berlin are targeting Industrie 4.0 (I4.0) efficiency and flexibility gains.

FreiForm is a modular set of hardware and software tools that helps to create small, arbitrarily shaped, autonomous sensor systems for production facilities and workpiece integration.

Harsh industry environments with elevated temperatures, severe mechanical impacts, and a multitude of substances are posing several challenges to both the mechanical and electrical robustness of wireless sensors. To validate FreiForm the partners create and implement a sensor system for a workpiece driven manufacturing process. Candidate products include axels, shafts or bearings.

“Nanotron is proud to work with Schaeffler Technologies, mircoTEC and a team of highly skilled partners to prove its technology-agnostic approach to location-aware wireless sensor networks under the real conditions of a high volume production process.” explains Dr. Jens Albers, CEO of nanotron Technologies. “We all share the vision of Industrie 4.0 that will take efficiency and flexibility of production processes to the next level.”

The new technology platform enables easy to manufacture and easy to integrate, intelligent wireless location-aware sensors of any shape or form. These sensors help to control production processes and thus form the basis that will make the I4.0 vision a reality.
