That is how Avio Aero named the Wet Rig project, developed together with Loccioni to test GE Aviation’s new ATP motors (Advanced Turbo Prop).
The control room built at the Avio Aero’s plant in Brindisi (Italy) simulates the atmospheric conditions of every stage of fly in order to verify safety and reliability of a virtual motor, which is recreated by the interaction of hardware modules (the two gearboxes) and the control system called FADEC (Full Authority Digital Engine Control system).
This combination makes it possible to simulate the motor’s behavior while it is still in a development stage, thus boosting the implementation process of this technology.
The Wet Rig project is one of the peaks of Loccioni’s experience in the aerospace sector. Alongside with the Circular Traversing System (read The Giant of the Forest) developed in 2016, it is one of the milestones of Loccioni’s partnership with Avio Aero (a GE Aviation business).
What we are doing today, our work, our choices can make the difference.
Living our time looking to the future, to leave better than we found.
Best wishes to all of you and your families.
On the occasion of the XVI edition of the Business Culture Week organized by Confindustria (the General Confederation of Italian Industry), Museimpresa organizes and promotes a rich calendar of events involving the entire territory, in order to directly live the history of our Country. This year, from 10th to 24th November 2017, it launches a reflection on “the languages of growth: culture, company, territory”.
We do support this initiative! On 22nd November we will open our doors and give the people the opportunity to take a closer look to our way of combining people, technology, business culture and territory.
The Institute of Management of the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies – Pisa, with whom we have been linked for years of partnerships, studies and describes our innovation process as an open and familiar enterprise.
The paper, published in the Journal of Knowledge Management, Vol. 21 Issue: 6, aims to shed light on how family firms execute open innovation strategies by managing internal and external knowledge flows.
Moving from the barriers to the acquisition and transfer of knowledge in open innovation processes, the paper presents and discusses the results of an exploratory case study on our enterprise, focusing on how we overcame these barriers: labelled imprinting and fraternization, two capabilities characterizing family firms, are the ‘secret’ which permeates our daily work.
Innovation is a consequence.
On October 18th, at Simris, a charming little town on the Swedish south-east coast, in the Scania Region, has disconnected the plug. The first energy island in Scandinavia has been inaugurated in the presence of institutions, companies and inhabitants.
With the LES project, Local Energy System, E.ON, the German energy giant, involved the inhabitants of a small town into something that tastes as future. As a matter of fact, the energy that feeds the houses, the shops and the life of this small seaside town will no longer be furnished by the national electrical power system, but it will be produced on site, exclusively renewable, without CO2 emissions and available when necessary.
The energy is produced by a 440 kW photovoltaic plant and a 500 kW wind turbine; in order to make the energy reliable and available also at night, there is a big battery and an intelligent distribution system.
The Internet of things and the intelligence of the energy are real. Intelligent is an increasingly important feature that we attribute to the energy, after accessible, reliable and renewable. In a scenery where the energetic islands and the microgrid will increase in number, where the needed energy is self-produced, where the complete independence from fossil sources is a concrete opportunity by now, where technology that guarantees the quality of the service and its reliability is increasingly important.
Two Loccioni’s projects, selected among national design excellences, show how the world of design holds innovation in all its shapes.
Milan, Monday, October 9th, National Museum of Science and Technology.
This time, the context is different, and this is a sign that time is changing: for the first time, the National Museum of Science and Technology welcomes the introduction of the 2017 ADI Index, the national selection of the best projects of the Italian Industry.
We can state there is no boundaries between arts, technology and social dimension; the excellence project contains all the several aspects of the good Italian industry.
Among the 204 works selected from the over seven hundred candidates, which together with those of last year will compete for the next Compasso d’Oro (The Golden Compass), there are two Loccioni’s projects that properly represents this innovation inside the design concept. Continue reading
