Ferrari S.p.A. is an Italian luxury sports car manufacturer based in Maranello. Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1929, as Scuderia Ferrari, the company sponsored drivers and manufactured race cars before moving into production of street-legal vehicles as Ferrari S.p.A. in 1947. Fiat acquired 50% of Ferrari in 1969 and expanded its stake to 85% in 2008. In 2014 Fiat announced its intentions to sell its share in Ferrari, as of the announcement Fiat owned 90% of Ferrari.Throughout its history, the company has been noted for its continued participation in racing, especially in Formula One, where it has had great success. Ferrari road cars are generally seen as a symbol of speed, luxury and wealth. Wikipedia.

Patent
Ferrari | Date: 2017-01-04

A reclosable stopper revealing a first opening, (11) positioned on a threaded mouth (12) of a container (10) essentially comprises a base body, from which a pouring element (17) extends upwardly, and a protection and closing cap (19) produced integrally therewith in a single piece and connected to the base body by means of a connecting bridge (18) in the form of a strip, acting as a hinge, wherein the base body also comprises a guarantee ring (14) connected by means of frangible bridges (15) to a collar (16), provided in its interior with an internal threading (13), complementary to that of the threaded mouth (12), wherein the protection and closing cap (19) is firmly positioned on the base body for closure, wherein in said stopper, between the base body with the pouring element (17), and the protection and closing cap (19), a group is envisaged, which reveals that there has been a first opening, comprising a double frangible connection system (22, 23, 24; 25, 30, 29, 31).


Patent
Ferrari and Maioli | Date: 2017-03-15

A debeading device for tire changing machines (81) comprising: a swing arm (11) having a hinging end (11A) hinged to a base (2) of a tire changing machine (1) and swinging in a swing plane between an active debeading position toward the base (2) and an inactive position away from the base (2); a debeading tool (14) supported at a free end (11B) of said arm (11), opposite to said hinging end (11A); actuator means for reciprocatingly rotating said arm (11) between said active and inactive positions, which comprise externally screw-threaded means (18) supported by said base (2) and rotatably actuated by motor means and screwingly/unscrewingly engaged in matingly threaded hollow means associated with said arm (1 1 ).


Patent
Ferrari | Date: 2017-01-04

A reclosable stopper (11) for revealing a first opening comprises a base body (16) for positioning on a container mouth (12), from which base body a pouring element (17) extends upwardly, and a protection and closing cap (19) integrally and hingedly connected to the base body. The base body also comprises a guarantee ring (14) connected by means of frangible bridges (15) to a collar. The cap (19) is firmly positioned on the base body for closure. A tamper-proof feature is provided between said base body with said pouring element (17), and said cap (19), for revealing a first opening, which comprises a double frangible connection system (22, 23, 24; 25, 37, 38) which can be actuated towards the inside of the cap (19).

The aim of DREAM is to significantly improve the performances of laser Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) of titanium, aluminium and steel components in terms of speed, costs, material use and reliability, also using a LCA/LCC approach, whilst producing work pieces with controlled and significantly increased fatigue life, as well with higher strength-to-weight ratios. DREAM targets the development of a competitive supply chain to increase the productivity of laser-based AM and to bring it a significant step further towards larger scale industrial manufacturing. In order to upscale the results and to reach an industrial relevant level of productivity, the project is focused on the following four main challenges (i) Part modeling and topology optimization (ii) Raw material optimization to avoid powder contamination (iii) Process optimization, including innovations of the control software of the AM machine, to enable high throughput production (iv) Setup of laser-PBF of nanostructured Titanium alloys with unchanged granulometric dimension for an additional push to higher productivity, since nanostructured metal powders can be sintered with lower energy input and faster speed. The project, thanks to the three end-users involved, is focused on components for prosthetic, automotive and moulding applications to optimize the procedure for three different materials, respectively titanium, aluminium and steel.

Manutelligence targets the product-service emerging trend; aiming at providing to EU manufacturing companies: - Efficiency in the design process, through ubiquitous cross-disciplinary collaborative management of P-S engineering knowledge across the entire life-cycle phases; - Complete integration of Product Lifecycle Management and Service Lifecycle Management, using methodologies and tools to support cross development; - Involvement of all the key partakers in the supply chain, including customers; - The ability to Search, retrieve and reuse data from heterogeneous data sources during design, manufacturing, testing and usage; - To manage, reuse and optimize designs, promoting modularity and Engineering Design Codified Knowledge, through KBE and design automation; - Close knowledge loop cycles between design, manufacturing, testing and use of products; - To extend and improve the use of Simulation and optimize it through comparison with test bench and real usage data; - Precise and quick measures and simulations of Cost and Sustainability issues, through Life Cycle Cost (LCC), Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) and CO2 footprint. To achieve these needs, ManuTelligence aims to integrate best in class methodology and tools from research and industry, resulting in a secure, cross disciplinary collaborative Product/Service Design and Manufacturing Engineering Platform. This platform will enable designers and engineers to access through natural 3D experiences to data from both the traditional enterprise IT systems (CAD, CAX, PLM, MES, etc.) and IoT enabled systems for physical products information and knowledge management. Such a platform, to have success on the market, needs to be inclusive, facilitating the cooperation and collaboration of enterprises. For this reason, it has been decided from the draft architecture, that it will have interfaces based on Open Standard (e.g. STEP and the OpenGroup QLM.
