Pilot manufacturing line for production of highly innovative materials

Objective

The vision of PilotManu is the upscale of the current mechanical alloying technological facility into a powder manufacturing pilot line by further developing existing IPR-covered results owned by the SMEs in the consortium related to mechanical alloying technology and to innovative powder materials for different applications.
The baseline technology that will be upscaled from a technological facility status into pilot scale, is the High Energy Ball Milling machine, able to deliver innovative materials for new product lines developed by SMEs and industrial partnership that will lead the technological upscale.
The project will demonstrate the technological and economical viability of the pilot line by implementing advanced materials into coatings, abrasive tool and additive manufacturing applications.
Additional application sectors will be represented in the business cases by analyzing the cost/benefits of using the following new materials: Mg hydrides for hydrogen storage, thermoelectrics for energy harvesting, flame retardant textile and polymer nanocomposite for rapid prototyping.
The potential impact brought by the new HEBM pilot production will be transversal also in all those technological sectors demanding high performance and outstanding material properties not achievable by conventional products. These huge un-exploited knowledge reservoir related to materials produced via HEBM or Mechanical Alloying will be unlocked by the Pilot Manu production system able to bring these results into the market.
