Presently the physical & digital worlds are merging & revolutionizing manufacturing processes dramatically. We call this Industry 4.0 or the 4th industrial revolution. Industry 4.0 is an amalgamation of various emerging technologies in making factories smarter and customer-centric. This revolution will have a similar effect on our entire society as the steam, electricity, automation and computerization had in earlier decades.
Industry 4.0 center is established to develop bonding with manufacturing industries and create manpower and resources for smart manufacturing setups. The center will also sensitize people at large in disruptive technologies required to implement Industry 4.0.
Creating Industry 4.0 (I4.0) Knowledge-Center For Industries & Academia
Delivering Training On Various I4.0 Skills
Producing I4.0 Ready Graduates
Establishing I4.0 Learning Lab And Research Center
Undertaking Industry-Driven Funded Projects & Research
The Department of heavy industries, Government of India has set up C4i4 Lab Pune as part of a national initiative named SAMARTH (Smart Automated Manufacturing and Rapid Transformation Hub) Udyog. Vishwakarma University is the founder member and education partner of C4i4 Labs Pune. Various projects were undertaken by this center under this collaboration.
● Factory Assessment Internship
Around 25 manufacturing industries around Pune were assessed using an innovative tool developed by C4i4 labs for their readiness in adopting Industry 4.0. Students got a chance to visit factories and meet higher authorities to gather the assessment data. It even facilitated their factory visit and shadowing activity with factory authorities
● Participation in Knowledge Series Lectures
Students attended master classes in the form of lectures by experts in Industry 4.0 under the knowledge series lectures at C4i4 Labs. It benefited students as well as faculty in developing awareness about industry 4.0 terminologies and technologies.
● Remote Product Monitoring System Project
(i) A smart sensor based system was developed around an old traditional lathe machine as a digitalization experiment. This helped in monitoring the health of the machine and its production throughput and all other types of data on a computerised dashboard. This setup could be used as an experimental resource for gathering manufacturing data smartly and using data-analytics to gain further insights.
(ii) Visit to C4i4 Labs was conducted for sensitizing students about developments taking place in industries.
(i) WorkshopsA 3D printing workshop was conducted for members of Industry 4.0 students club in which students got hands-on experience of 3D printing for parts designed by them.
(ii) Knowledge Series Lectures
