DIGI&MET Laboratory is a multidisciplinary research center of Danieli Automation housed at the UNIUD LAB VILLAGE.
This center, working in close contact with the university, is dedicated to innovation, combining advanced research and know-how in the metals manufacturing process. The laboratory operates in the fields of advanced automation, robotics, process control, numerical modelling, artificial intelligence and power electronics.
DIGI&MET Laboratory introduces a new operating tool: Applications, meant to formulate an entire problem or part of a problem, whose solution is beneficial to the metals manufacturing process.
Danieli Automation R&D personnel is always present in the laboratory to assist professors, researchers, doctoral candidates and students.
