Speeding innovation for industry
Manufacturing and retail
The factory of the future (FoF) will be digital, functional, flexible, and profitable, making it a key factor in business performance.
People are at the center of this new breed of factory, starting by making the end customer an integral part of the production cycle. Factory staff will also play a key role, delivering their unique know-how with the assistance of flexible technologies that will make their work both safer and more efficient.
CEA Tech offers a number of solutions for the factory of the future that leverage digital technologies, connectivity, automation, data processing, Big Data, and IoT, driving the new industrial revolution that is now solidly underway.
List, a CEA Tech institute, recently set up a startup called Isybot to develop and commercialize the institute’s most powerful command-control and actuator solutions for the collaborative robotics market.
Bag-Era has developed an application that interconnects the components of complex industrial and service systems to ensure that these systems are coherent and robust.
List, a CEA Tech institute, is investigating ways to increase the use of X-ray tomography in non-destructive testing (NDT). The institute’s Gerim 2 platform has a new robotic cell to help further this research.
CIVA simulation software now includes a new module that can generate ultrasound generation models via the interaction of laser pulses with composite materials. This advance will contribute to faster production and assembly of composite structures for the aeronautics industry.
Researchers at List, a CEA Tech institute, have combined two guided ultrasonic wave inspection techniques. The innovative method developed is effective at detecting corrosion damage to pipes in areas that cannot be accessed using traditional methods.
How to collaborate with the CEA
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
