Horno3 Museum showcases cutting edge industrial technology to students
With UANL as its closest ally, the upcoming Horno3 Industrial Model is the most ambitious educational project of advanced technology in the state.
During the day, the Horno3 Museum will open to students from UANL high schools, Conalep, Cecatis, and Cebetis. At night, workers of the local industry will have specialized training.
President Rogelio Garza joined the museum staff and the industry representatives in a tour through the facilities. The high technology equipment was acquired thanks to the funds of Conacyt and the Ministry of Economy.
The project has technological support from companies like Dassault Systèmes and Festo, local factories such as Ternium and DeAcero, and other universities like UDEM and U-ERRE.
“This partnership with UANL is probably the most important one we have. Our interns and experts will train these students’’, Museum Director Luis Lopez said.
Horno3 Industrial Model laboratories
- Live science
The live science laboratory will be open for certain industry specialists to share their experiences and work methodologies.
- Virtual and augmented reality
This laboratory has super PCs and some computer equipment with the programmatic portfolio 3DExperience by Dassault Systems.
‘’It’s the newest one. The portfolio has design programs, such as SolidWorks, Cenobia, Catia, and Simulia. Mercedes Benz, Audi, and planes are designed with this software”, Luis Lopez mentioned.
- Internet of things
Here you can find a scale model of an intelligent city where cars and trains are controlled by sensors programmed to follow the traffic flow.
‘’By monitoring and controlling the energy consumption, we’ve been able to optimize costs. The system helps make decisions’’, Lopez stated.
- Industry 4.0
It has three robotic modules from Festo. Mechatronics Engineers Gerson and Magdiel explained how the processes are automated to have less human intervention.
‘’The objective is to move this software from informal to formal education. We encourage children and young adults to learn without limits. This is totally disruptive because they can innovate unlimitedly’’, he commented.
