Strengthening the Excellence of Additive Manufacturing Capabilities

Objective

Additive manufacturing (AM) has the potential to drive novel industry development as well as to transform current industries, but exploiting it to the fullest requires professionals with advanced degrees who have received the highest-level training in both technical and non-technical competences. The University of Ljubljana has expertise in the direct laser deposition (DLD) process, but has several weaknesses in the areas addressed in the SEAMAC project, including material behaviour especially to master the manufacturing of functionally graded materials and to perform postprocessing of AM parts to improve surface roughness. Hence, leading scientific institutions, namely Technion - Israel Institute of Technology and Technische Universiteat Bergakademie Freiberg take part in the consortium. The former brings expertise in material science and the latter the knowledge on plasma electrolytic polishing. Both institutions are very active in the AM field, have a lot of cooperation with industrial partners, and are skilled in research management. The project activities encompass technical and non-technical cooperation and exchange of knowledge through the workshops and organisation of summer schools.
