Final Report - MULTILAYER (Rolled multi material layered 3D shaping technology)

Project ID: 214122
Funded under: FP7-NMP

Abstract

This is the final report of the MULTILAYER project which received funding under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The aim of the project was to develop a new platform for the large-scale production of micro devices based on a technology termed 'Rolled multi material layered 3D shaping technology', which uses the concept of tape casting combined with advanced printing techniques. The report begins by describing the background and parameters of the project notes that the MULTILAYER project did not intend to fully develop new production technologies, which would have been far too expensive, but to adapt, hybridise and further integrate technologies that have been already demonstrated. The bulk of the report is devoted to describing the main innovation brought by the project which lies in the integration of technologies that are seen as very promising from an industrial point of view but that are not yet compatible with large scale and low cost manufacturing of ceramic multifunctional micro devices. The report concludes with potential impact and noting that the approach guarantees the impact of the MULTILAYER project on the industrial participants by reducing the cost of development.
