The LEVEL-UP project upgrades existing production lines and extends their useful lifetime. Automation, digitalisation and rapid technological development have a common goal - greater added value and competitiveness on global markets. TECOS Slovenian Tool and Die Development Centre recognized one of these opportunities to upgrade existing production machines and joined the international LEVEL-UP consortium.
The TECOS team has adopted specific practical knowledge and purposed innovative solutions in previous national and international R&D projects, as well as in the framework of its own development and project cooperation.
The LEVEL-UP project is funded by Horizon 2020 and brings together 32 partners. It is worth a total of more than €17 million. The project aims to develop innovative solutions, strategies and protocols to extend the life of capital investments and large industrial equipment. After the completion of the project, certain solutions will certainly be patented, while others will be marketed in large numbers in similar areas according to the needs of interested companies.
