Dematerialised Manufacturing Systems: A new way to design, build, use and sell European Machine Tools.

European machine builders are currently producing and selling high-performance machines but, that at the same time involve a great amount of material resources and high energy consumption.

To face this non-sustainable situation, this project will tackle a twofold approach: a) To integrate mechanics, control and machining dynamics for reducing the material amount of manufacturing systems while assuring productivity, accuracy and reliability. b) To integrate the resulting lightweight manufacturing systems with value-adding features such as machine reconfiguration options, information sharing capabilities, lifecycle services and new business models. These dematerialised systems will provide thus a maximum of added value with a minimum of used energy and material resources.


CECIMO launches the DEMAT blog

The DEMAT blog has been created to serve as a dynamic platform for the project. It is regularly updated with articles, events, business proposals and multimedia content relating to the project and provided by consortium partners. Interested stakeholders are invited to utilize the blog for gathering information, but also commenting, networking, and interacting with the partners.
