Strategiskt innovationsprogram: Samlar Sverige för hållbar och konkurrenskraftig produktion

Digital Sågverkstvilling för effektiv produktion och underhåll – MillTwin

The digital twin for sawmills project focuses on collecting, structuring and sharing data for increased efficiency and up-time of the bandsaw line in Moelvens Valåsen sawmill.

The digital twin will be used to achieve higher production efficiency together with partners SKF and OPTIWARE that provide industrial equipment as well as services for maintenance of equipment. Moelven already has a significant amount of sensor data and production related data for these parts of the plank production from a previous project “Det Digitala Sågverket” (the digital sawmill). In this project we will continue working with this data but instead of analysing it only at Moelven, it will be structured for sharing with the equipment and maintenance supply-chain partners. During the project more data will be added, including 3D scans of the sawmill, video-data from the production line, and additional sensor data that are needed for the specific equipment and maintenance tasks that are selected for demonstration in the second part of the project.

The research partners, RISE and FCC, provide expertise and many years of experience in Internet of Things, AI, machine learning, AR, industrial production, and the wood industry. The project will assess the applicability of the concept of ‘material passport’ in the manufacturing industry by involving a cross functional group represented by researchers, manufacturers, software developers and recycling experts.
