SAMMCERS (Self-Guided Additive Manufacturing for Minimum Carbon Emission with Roll-to-Roll-Production Systems) reduce more than 50 percent of carbon emission in the mass production of the most key components used in consumer electronics, solar panels, lighting fixtures, IoT sensor networks, automotive electronics, cloud servers and storages. This is accomplished by three categories of newly developed technologies: high-precision roll-to-roll additive manufacturing, ultra-fast sensors for predictive manufacturing and interactive cloud systems. ITRI’s SAMMCERS mean a revolution in production, featuring with real-time self-guidance mechanism based on interactive cloud system. Through the advanced data-analytic models and machine-learning algorithms for self-guidance production and predictive manufacturing, it can maximize the production yields and minimize the waste.
