Abstract: The paper presents some results obtained within the National Research Centre for Performances of Technological Systems - Optimum (CNCPST-Optimum) and implemented in industry.
CNCPST-Optimum ( is a research and consulting unit with an interdisciplinary profile, in the framework of "POLITEHNICA" University of Bucharest, Faculty of Engineering and Management of Technological Systems, Machine and Production Systems department ( The centre was founded in 1993 as the result of a project financed by the Global Bank.
The partners in research and educational projects are: INSA Lyon, Ecole Centrale de Paris and Lyon, ENSAM Aix en Provence, ENSAM Lille, Bordeaux 1, (FR), South Bank University of London (UK), Universite Technique De Darmstadt (DE), Bergamo, Torino (IT), Patras, Piraeus (GR), Porto (PT), KU Leuven (BE), University of Liege (BE) etc.
CNCSPT-Optimum carries on: fundamental and applicative research, consulting, education, development, post-graduate studies and distance studies.
The centre has results in: high speed machine design, study and optimization of the interfaces (hexapod-spindle and robot-hexapod); new design solutions (modelling and simulation); mechanical signature analysis (static, dynamic and temperature analysis); optimization by simulation of manufacturing systems; active and passive control, (SMART) solutions for vibrations damping; actuators and control design.
