Manufacturing Error-free Goods at First Time

Advanced manufacturing processes

General description
The efficiency and sustainability of both the manufacturing of actual and future products is still very much determined by the processes that shape and assemble the components of these products. Innovative products and advanced materials (including nano-materials) are emerging but are not yet developing to their full advantage since robust manufacturing methods to deliver these products and materials are not developed for large scale. Research is needed to ensure that novel manufacturing processes can efficiently exploit the potential of novel products for a wide range of applications.

Specifics for Project MEGaFiT | Manufacturing Error-free Goods at First Time

Title Manufacturing Error-free Goods at First Time
Description The current approach to increase process robustness by applying the well-known Six-Sigma methodology to reduce defects is exhausted for these types of manufacturing processes, due to process and part complexity
Comments Within MEGaFiT we focus on technologies to enable next generation processes Additive manufacturing was one of the 2 demonstrators in this project Micro-foming was one of the 2 demonstrators in this project
 Additive manufacturing demonstration line Result title Additive manufacturing demonstration line Result description The additive manufacturing process uses laser to locally heat up a powder bed. This process is repeated for many layers creating a 3D complex part.
 Micro-forming demonstration line Result comments Manufacturing Manufacture of fabricated metal products, except machinery and equipment
