IDAG is an initiation project with the aim to understand and identify both needs and mitigation strategies that will enable industrialisation of additive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing create new value chains where new actors need to collaborate and information need to be shared and processes effectively, securely and in a traceable way. At present, intense development activities are underway within several domains, including e.g. materials technology, manufacturing technology, simulation technology and design technology. There are today apparent flaws in the way information is being processed between the actors and the IT systems. Making use of the extensive amount of data being produced and captured cannot be effectively used without a well defined digital infrastructure.
In IDAG, several complementary actors in a value chain are brought together. Höganäs produces powder for AM, Brogrens manufacture components that entirely, or partially, are candidates to use additive manufacturing and GKN Aerospace have already first experience of introducing additive manufacturing into products. Chalmers conduct research and development of digital, platform based, development and RISE provide physical manufacturing resources and environment capable of demonstrating additive manufacturing value chains. Eurostep and Value Chain provide digital envirmonments that have the capability and potential to provide digital processing necessary, such as traceability of information and additive manufacturing data processing.
IDAG collect and analyses industrial cases and prepare a demonstration studie with the aim to develop, demonstrate and evaluate a digital infrastructure for industrialization of additive manufacturing together with more partners in the DISAM and DISAM test beds.
Ph.D. Mechanical Engineering
This project intends to design and develop a new test methodology for evaluation of power flowability in powder bed fusion (PBF) systems. The test apparatus will simulate powder flow in PBF machines and can be used for optimizing the powder layering behavior for potential utilization of alternative powder qualities. Additionally, this equipment creates opportunities for both powder producers and AM part manufacturers to minimize powder waste and maximize material utilization.
The project's main goal is to develop a design and manufacturing methodology, for resource efficient additive manufacturing of components in the automotive industry.
The goal is to demonstrate the additive manufacturing of micrometer/millimeter wave components.
The overall goal of DiSAM is to create a unique test AM Hub in Sweden for metal and polymer based additive manufacturing processes.
DiLAM strengthens the competitiveness of the Swedish manufacturing industry by aligning the digital and physical supply chains for additive manufacturing of large parts.
Design process from concept to printable stl-file for AM including surface based networks in the structure.
Reduced lead times and improved performance for tooling through innovative manufacturing and assembly strategies as well as optimised design enabled by use of additive manufacturing (AM).
The project aims to test the idea of an effective circulation system for material waste from additive manufacturing. Our goal is to map the prerequisites for closer collaboration between material suppliers and additive manufacturers, including new business models, partnerships and logistics solutions.
The aim of the project is to demonstrate utilization of additive manufacturing for copper-based products and process solutions and faster adaption
