Caractérisation mécanique des cornières MULTIFOLD 4.0 et étude de l’effet du type de carton, du type de colle et de l’humidité sur leurs propriétés mécaniques

Les cornières en carton sont utilisées afin de protéger les angles de colis ou de palettes, pendant leurs manutentions. Afin de réduire son empreinte environnementale, le groupe Abzac a introduit une nouvelle gamme de cornières au design innovateur, appelée MULTIFOLD. Les nouvelles cornières développées par Abzac sont plus résistance, plus légère, moins coûteuse, et nécessite moins de matière première pour la fabrication réduisant ainsi leur coût environnemental.

CONCEPTION ET FABRICATION D’UN BANC D’ESSAI POUR UN RÉCOLTEUR D’ÉNERGIE PROVENANT DU ROTOR D’UN HÉLICOPTÈRE

La récolte d’énergie ("energy harvesting" ou "energy scavenging") a connu une croissance importante au cours des dernières années. C’est le processus de récupération de l’énergie (voir Figure 1) des sources externes (solaire, thermique, éolienne, acoustique, mécanique/cinétique, etc.) et de conversion en électricité utile à petite échelle.

Development of robust and innovative designs for pet products aiming at positively affecting pet behavior

In most cases, the overwhelming reason behind pet abandonment is because of behavioral problems. Often, these behavioral problems are common issues that could be corrected if owners were to better understand their pets. Beonebreed, a young Canadian company active in the pet products’ market, proposes the development of two products aiming at the resolution of this problem. The desensitizer will be a unique product on the market, an interconnected product that will partly imitate the methods of a pet behaviorist by rewarding the animal when a positive event happens.

Antireflective nano-patterned surface treatment for glass

Based at Montréal, Canada, Edgehog specializes in anti-reflection and other light management solutions for displays and lighting applications. Their nanostructuring technology aims to enable full display readability from all angles in direct sunlight and reduced power consumption through lowered screen brightness. As their current technology proofs the concept at lab scale, further research is needed to find scalable fabrication processes for successful technology transfer to industry level.

Étude d’un système de portes palières automatiques pour le réaménagement de stations de métro

Les portes palières sont des portes automatiques situées généralement en bordure des voies le long des quais des stations de métro, pour séparer physiquement le quai des voitures du train. Les portes palières sont de plus en plus intégrées directement en amont de la conception des nouvelles stations de métro, ou alors elles sont rétrofitées pour pouvoir s’adapter aux quais des stations de métro déjà existantes.

Prediction of distortions and residual stresses during intensive quench of long Forged steel bar

Water quench of steels consists to cool heated steel by sudden immersion in water.During the quench of large steel components, the part experiences a fast drop in temperature at the surface while the center is still hot. This huge difference in temperature within the part triggers material heterogeneities that induces shape change or even initiate cracks in severe cases.Unfortunately, the forging companies couldn’t always avoid this failures caused by the above process.

Successful implementation of agile techniques on manufacturing processes for a fast growing robotics start-up

Agile management techniques are designed to be responsive to unpredictable project changes along the manufacturing process. Such changes result from the sensitivity and particular requirements of different projects. These projects require multiple dependencies that evolve during the project execution. Agile techniques aim to prevent costly (i.e., inefficient) and wasteful planning (i.e., ineffective) that can lead to overrun time and budget. This is particularly important for fast-growing companies with multi-disciplinary operations that are difficult to plan reliably.

Process-integrated post-processing of high-precision additive manufactured metal parts

Located in Montréal, Canada, Nanogrande is a pioneer in the high-precision metal additive manufacturing market and the premier Canadian metal 3D printer provider. To solidify their unique market position, it is key to increase their deposition process expertise and explore technologies for process performance improvement and added value proposition. The proposed project aims to support this mission by developing post-processing integration in Nanogrande’s additive manufacturing technology and characterize the deposition process.

Towards a circular end-to-end process for fully 3D printed footwear – assessment of additive manufacturing processes, material selection and mechanical characterization

The fashion industry has recently shifted toward better environmental practices but focus has been on apparel because shoes are complex products. ARSHAE, located in Montréal, proposes an end-to-end solution that accounts for the entire life cycle of shoes by building a closed loop system that enables zero waste. ARSHAE focuses on using ecological materials in hyper-localized mini factories powered by 3D printing.
3D printing is a highly interesting and disruptive solution presenting unlimited potential for the footwear industry.

Démonstration d’outils pour la récolte d’échantillons foliaires par drones dans des environnements réalistes

De nombreux écosystèmes sur la terre sont encore extrêmement difficiles, voire impossibles, d'accès pour la communauté scientifique. Cela affecte considérablement la quantité et la qualité des recherches en cours, ainsi que les efforts de conservation pouvant être déployés. Ces environnements difficiles d’accès comprennent entre autres la canopée des forêts et les falaises. Pour atteindre la cime d’arbre mature, les techniques d’échantillonnage couramment utilisées sont archaïques.
