ReFreeDrive, developing new electric motor technologies

11/07/2017 by cidaut

ReFreeDrive is our most recently approved H2020 project. With the title “Rare earth free e-Drives featuring low cost manufacturing”, ReFreeDrive is focused on developing rare earth‐free traction technologies beyond their current state-of‐art, with a strong focus on industrial feasibility for mass production, targeting lower costs with higher specific torque and power density. The project was kicked off last 17th and 18th of October.

The new, revolutionary technology that can optimise your company’s productivity, reduce risks and bring down costs.

11/07/2017 by cidaut

Digital twins are an enormous advance in engineering simulation. By using simulation software in conjunction with real-time operational data transmitted from a working product, and integrating this with digital information about the product, businesses can analyse how their products operate in real-world conditions, and make reliable predictions about future operation. Product performance and productivity can be optimised, while risks and costs are reduced.

Remaghic, two years running!

11/07/2017 by cidaut

Last September in San Sebastian, the Remaghic Project partners held the 24 month meeting general assembly. During the last months many decisions have been taken on the best chain of processes to recycle rare earths and on the design of the currently manufactured facility to recycle Mg and produce the Remaghic magnesium alloy. Currently, casting tests with different alloying elements have been done, corrosion and mechanical testing campaigns are ongoing, and the project faces the last project year where the industrial validation and the LCA will highlight the results achieved.

Launch of SAFE STRIP project with the participation of CIDAUT.

09/12/2017 by cidaut

Safe Strip is the natural continuation of Safe Spot, where CIDAUT also played an important role.

SAFE STRIP aims to introduce a disruptive technology that will achieve to embed C-ITS applications in existing road infrastructure, including novel I2V and V2I, as well as VMS/VSL functions into low-cost, integrated strips markers on the road; to make roads self-explanatory (with personalised in-vehicle messages) and forgiving (due to advanced cooperative functions) for all road users (trucks, cars and vulnerable road users, such as PTWs riders) and all vehicle generations (non-equipped, C-ITS equipped, autonomous), with reduced maintenance cost, full recyclability and
