Project: Shape MemOry aLloys for stonE maChining and compUter aided Technology

The SOLE-CUT project will provide advanced technical devices (tools and machine tools) and competitive ready-to-market solutions for the stone machining sector. SOLE-CUT will develop shared knowledge, practical know-how and a modern background of simulation methodologies and codes capable of designing and creating new families of high performing stone-cutting-machines. Innovative Shape Memory Alloys and Super-elastic materials will be considered for wire rope (substituting conventional steels) and technical, economic and ecological consistency of materials will be considered, thus producing innovative and green solutions for a more sustainable cutting process. SOLE-CUT proposes an innovative monitoring system, which applies machine vision technology for automatic surface inspection and fault / anomaly prevention in the cutting / carving process. SOLE-CUT groups 5 SMEs and 1 RTO, from 4 Regions and 3 countries and integrates scientific and technological expertise with multi-year experience in stone manufacturing.
