The Intelligent 4D Moulds project aims to investigate the state-of-the-art of mold production processes and to develop a technological innovative system that will include new processes in mold production using computer vision and augmented reality techniques.
These allow reducing production costs, making companies more competitive in the national and international market. By exploring and combining the potential of both technologies, it will be possible to define and identify in each design and manufacturing process, what problems are found and to support in their resolution.
The consortium is composed of two companies, A.Silva, Godinho & CA LDA and METEORIKEQUAÇÃO, and by a non-corporate entity, Association C.C.G. / ZGDV – Center for Computer Graphics.
Being involved in all stages of the project, the CCG, by its applied research domain CVIG, focuses its participation in three main R&D+i lines:
Financing: Intelligent 4d Moulds (projet nº 33625), supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), through the Competitiveness and Internationalization Operational Program (COMPETE 2020) under the PORTUGAL 2020 Partnership Agreement.
Total eligible cost: 515 174,42€
EU financial support: 322 795,11€
Partners: A. Silva, Godinho & CA Lda; Meteorikequação
