ROBust Optimisation in Design for Additive Manufacturing

ROBust Optimisation in Design for Additive Manufacturing

The project aims at further develop and validate a fully integrated design optimization process for additive manufactured components taking into account both product requirements and manufacturing process requirements and limitations especially for products using surface based networks as a design element. The project will also build knowledge on properties of networks, e.g. stiffness, strength, and how to integrate these into topology optimized structures. Further, the project will also build knowledge on the function of networks as support structure during the build. This to minimize the need for post build processing.

Sustainable Metal Powder Utilization in Powder Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing


3D-Printing, Additive Manufacturing, Assembly, Powder Bed Fusion

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.

Infrastructure for Digitalization enabling industrialization of Additive manufacturinG – IDAG


Additive Manufacturing, Digital Platform, Industrialisation, Industrialisation

IDAG aim to identify gaps and propose actions for the digital infrastructure necessary to industrialize additive manufacturing technologies. Actors from a new type of value chain of manufacturing companies – from powder to product – collaborate with digital solution providers and researchers to understand the needs and articulate the necessary actions through analysis of industrial cases. The target is to deliver a description in the form of a roadmap for how these actions can be developed and provided in order to ensure flexible and scalable digital platforms for additive manufacturing value chains.
