The 3-year European project unites a consortium of 33 tech-parties and an even larger community throughout the continent. The integral and joint approach is to make AM scalable and a production method suitable for high-volume production. As several end-users are part of the consortium, there will be a strong focus on productivity of the manufacturingprint process. This includes the integration of the post-production workflow and factory automization - needed for industrialisation - from the very start. These productivity enhancements will be
applied to metal printing, printing of moulds with the integration of electronics, and the automization of AM-factories, service-bureaus and dental clinics.
Besides investments for specific innovations, major resources have been reserved for new project development with the industry. As such, it will become the stepping stone to a community of dedicated partners with a joint strategy to bring AM to high volume production.
