The industry of the future at your fingertips!


The LABO INDUSTRIE is the opportunity to observe the technologies of the industry of the future in operation and attend round tables that can help you decide where your company should invest next!

LABO INDUSTRIe is the result of a close collaboration between the Industry of the Future Alliance, CEA, Symop (the French association for manufacturing technologies), Cetim (the Technical Centre for Mechanical Industry), and the ITC (Industrial Technical Centres) network. It showcases the work done by start-ups and research laboratories in creating and refining the equipment and techniques that SMEs, in particular, can integrate into their factories within the next few months. The four categories are adapted to the challenges of the future and demonstrate the competitive advantages defined by the Industry of the Future Alliance (AIF).



Advanced Manufacturing:

for state-of-the-art eco-friendly processes and materials, production solutions – robotics and additive manufacturing in particular – and new materials.



Digital Factory:

for information transmission media, which are essential for connecting equipment and machinery using secure infrastructures. Discussions will also cover virtual and/or augmented reality, the digital factory, and the interoperability of systems.



Demonstrations prove the absolute necessity to protect ourselves from all manner of malicious attempts to attack the control settings of a production line using a smartphone, and affect the quality and safety of products.



Data Intelligence:

with the connection, optimisation, and control of islands, lines, and factories. These developments require the data retrieved from the Digital Factory to be processed as efficiently as possible. As a result, this space focuses more specifically on data intelligence, artificial intelligence, and the new business models that they generate.

The wide variety of demos will help you find the solutions that are right for you!



CETIM is using concrete achievements to highlight the latest innovations affecting the production of composite parts: design, with a “Design to Cost” approach to parts optimisation; production, with high-performance processes in moulding and filament winding; quality control, with solutions adapted to the latest processes; and recycling, with new technologies for reusing end-of-life thermoplastics


The LNE (a French reference laboratory responsible for carrying out measurement and testing products) presents an innovative solution for measuring the density of additive manufacturing parts and porosity using a pycnometer. The LGCGM laboratory presents an instrumented portable indentation device for the in-situ mechanical characterisation of materials


The Pprime7 laboratory in Poitiers and ITECA present an environment to manage the factory of the future using virtual reality headsets.



Several start-ups are presenting demos, in particular showing the transformation of visual quality inspections using AI (SCORTEX), a new refrigeration technology that uses water as a refrigerant, (LEVIATHAN Dynamics) imaging modelling software for the cutting-edge mechanical sector, (EIKOSIM), an Artificial Intelligence platform to improve the efficiency and performance of your assets, (TELL ME PLUS), a Surface Treatment process for the automobile, electronics, aerospace, and cosmetics sectors, (VECTOR AST), a virtual barrier solution with a vision system, (G SENSING) and (CP3I)



The CEA LIST presents several demonstrations with high technological value:


FlexHand: a new versatile multi-digit gripper. It is a 3-fingered robotic gripping device with 4 motorised joints. You can adjust and control the grips and the power, and the device’s sensitivity is measured in hundreds of grams. This gripper is able to handle or pick up parts of various sizes, shapes, and stiffness. It has a wide variety of uses.


Tridimeo: a multispectral and ultra-fast 3D industrial vision to ensure high-speed quality control or 3D localisation of robotic grippers


Connected moulds (BeInCPPS)

The CEA List and the international mould-maker Georges Pernoud present the connected smart plastic-injection mould: its integrated temperature sensors enable it to detect malfunctions in real time and provide predictive maintenance by data feedback.


Secure predictive maintenance: List’s teams have developed the Cingulata technology, which makes calculation based on homomorphic encryption feasible and realistic. Cingulata enables you to create applications for processing and analysing data on remote servers, while preserving their confidentiality throughout the process, from collection to use. The technology has been implemented in a “predictive maintenance” situation, in which various actors intervene: systems integrator (production data supplier), techno-provider (supplier of machine settings) and service provider in SaaS mode. The demonstrator shows that it is possible to predict the remaining life of a device in less than one second on a standard platform without disclosing the data content of suppliers.


Cybersecurity: Frama-C

The CEA List’s FRAMA-C platform is dedicated to code analysis for the cybersecurity of industrial systems. It uses advanced reasoning techniques to perform exhaustive detection of software vulnerability classes, and is used in particular for the security verification of OPC-UA components.


The digital twin for industrial optimisation (project by SODALITe)

As part of the Factory Lab, CEA List, PSA, and Sherpa Engineering have partnered to develop a methodology for optimising the design of production lines. Targeting the dimensioning of storage areas, this methodology puts the factory’s digital twin at the service of optimisation and simulation.


Manufacturing intelligence: the software demonstration shows how machine learning can predict rejects in production chains and offer a diagnosis of these rejects to enable continuous improvement of the production tool’s performance.
