The proposed CEFC is envisaged as a multi-utility center. It will comprise a set of smart machinery that will be interconnected to represent a miniature, but feature-rich production system. The National CEFC will act as a primary body to support Demonstration, Skilling, Prototyping and Integrated Solutions Facility for Smart Technology Enabled Manufacturing.
As a part of CEFC, it is proposed to set up a Cyber Physical Lab for Smart Manufacturing Research at IIT Delhi, Hauz Khas campus (proposed floor area 1,500 sq. ft.) and a full-fledged Cyber-Physical Factory at IIT Delhi Sonepat campus (proposed floor area 30,000 sq. ft.).
The Cyber-Physical Factory will house the Discrete Manufacturing Cell. A Cyber-Physical Smart Factory for Hybrid Manufacturing will also be setup for Food & Beverages and Bottling plants. All modules required for manufacturing a customized batch of food/beverage items are included in the facility.
The following technologies are being included at the CEFC - Cyber-Physical Systems, Collaborative Robots, Industry 4.0 Compliant Sensors, Actuators & Controllers, Rapid Prototyping & Tooling, Augmented Reality, Advance Simulation and Digital Twin, Analytics, Remote Maintenance, Wireless Instrumentation, Industrial Safety and Cyber Security.
