AMaTUC project: New collaboration on Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a trendy topic highly appreciated by Intelligentsia for many reasons such as its potential for numerous industrial applications, the constant improvement of techniques, its capacity to develop innovative products/services and Intelligentsia's network of contacts in the domain. Indeed, since the FP7 AdM-ERA project, Intelligentsia has built a strong relationship with the partners Loughborough University (LbU) in the UK and the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca (TUCN) in Romania. This is why we are really pleased to have recently helped them win the H2020 project AMaTUC.

During the next three years, we will all collaborate to raise the European state-of-the-art in the field of AM and especially improving Selective Laser Melting (SLM) and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) processes to manufacture customised parts for the automotive industry. The consortium will also analyse and define how to integrate AM technologies with suitable rapid tooling methods for small to medium volume production of plastic parts or metal parts, as well as complex parts made from composite materials.

For the coordinator TUCN, the AMaTUC project will support the automotive and customised products' industries representing the bulk part of the Romanian manufacturing sector, employing 28% of the national workforce. At European level, the AMaTUC project's results will also increase the innovation potential and sustainably diversify the products/services portfolio of the targeted industries with high potential for the European economy.  

The kick-off meeting was held in Cluj the 11-12 January 2016, and the event has been promoted on national TV channel, see below a video from DIGI24.
