AFM continues to be a benchmark entity in R&D&i for machine tooling and advanced manufacturing, as evidenced by its participation in 5 HAZITEK projects with the Basque Government-SPRI during 2020. The projects cover highly interesting and relevant topics for the sector, such as the balance between Edge and Cloud solutions for the factory of the future, connectivity of old machine tools, sovereign identity in Industry 4.0 or the generation of value-added services in the sector.

EDGE4FoF – Research into balanced hybrid EDGE and Cloud architectures for the Factory of the Future

The EDGE4FoF project seeks to develop a new benchmark architecture in Edge/Cloud Computing to generate innovative products and services capable of automatic load balancing to offer solutions to the factory of the future.

SMARTCON – Integration of digital identity and BlockChain to create value-added services based on Industrial Smartcontracts

SMARTCON aims to research and develop digitalisation solutions that will enable machine tool companies to maximise the added-value of their current industrial products, optimising efficiency, availability, interoperability and the quality of their resources, maintenance services, design and manufacturing processes, as well as creating innovative business models for their multiple customers and suppliers in the new global digital ecosystem of the processes industry.

SSI4.0 – Sovereign Digital Identity and Data Sovereignty in Industry 4.0

SSI4.0 is all about experimental research and development of technologies for reaching a new realm of digitalisation, optimisation and enhancement of industry, focusing on building relationships of trust between players and systems within the industrial ecosystem, as well as managing the sovereignty, integrity and confidentiality of the information exchanged by these (credentials, designs, production data, etc.).

MADINET – Digital Value Network for Advanced Services based on connected Machines

MADINET seeks to provide the machine tool sector with an interoperable and cybersecure digital ecosystem to connect the different assets in the value network. This digital ecosystem will be based on the latest industrial standards and will involve disruptive technologies in CPS/IoT, Cloud Computing or Cybersecurity, facilitating the creation of Industry 4.0 services and products that can be replicated and monetised to maximise efficiency in industrial manufacturing, as well as control and maintenance of assets throughout the entire technology vertical.


RETRO-CONNECT tackles the issue of obsolescence faced by older machine tools in industrial parks, which impacts on the production needs of the companies using them.

All of these activities have been co-financed by the Basque Government and the European Union through the 2014-2020 European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
