Arquimea Ingenieria was in Bremen last week for the european edition of Space Tech Expo. Space Tech Expo is Europe's premier engineering event for space related technologies and is a meeting place for thousands of companies, investors, engineers, manifacturers and buyers for civil, military and commercial space applications. For the first time the Pre2Pos project [...]
Phi Drive hosted the first annual meeting of Pre2Pos project in its headquarter in Vimercate. In this fundamental moment of discussion, Phi Drive technicians and their partners from Arquimea Ingenieria laid the foundation of the incoming rotary actuator for the space market, thanks to the support of the European Union. Project Officer Gregor Novak payed [...]
As we are nearing the end of the first year of Pre2Pos project, Arquimea will soon pay Phi Drive a visit in their office in Vimercate, in order to discuss the technological achievements accomplished so far. The goal of Pre2Pos Project is the commercialization of a rotary actuator for space applications, based on a Phi [...]
We are excited to announce that Pre2Pos second piezo-drive, AG-LT, has finally been prototyped, and will soon begin its first experimental campaign. AG-LT is very different from the previous AG-HT drive, using a completely different working principle that will preserve all the advantages of AG-HT, while achieving higher rotational speed at the expense of a [...]
PRE2POS has eventually reached the end of its first semester, and our team is pleasingly impressed by the results hitherto accomplished. Since Phi Drive and Arquimea began their collaboration in October 2016, the project accomplished remarkable results in the design of AG-HT drive. Its concept was first introduced by Nicola Cau and Paolo Bonfiglio, Phi Drive cofounders, and [...]
The latest prototype of AG-HT has been successfully tested in Phi Drive lab. Torque and speed performances follow the project specifics, and are in agreement with our numerical simulation, carried out with FEM. Phi Drive team will now focus on further increasing the performances and consolidate the technology.
Early this week Phi Drive met with Arquimea in Madrid to sign the Consortium Agreement for the Pre2Pos project. The agreement will ensure the project is implemented properly, serving as a guide for the work to come. With this act, Deliverable D6.1 has been completed.
PhiDrive and Arquimea met in Vimercate to ratify the beginning of Pre2Pos project. It was a brilliant opportunity for the technicians of both parties to exchange their knowledge, consolidating the consortium and defining the line of work for the following months.
