A revolutionary Lithography-based Metal Manufacturing (LMM) machine for 3D printing of high-quality functional metal parts

Project description

3D printing of high-quality metal parts in manufacturing lines

The design limitations and high tooling costs of casting and injection moulding make them unsuitable for manufacturing a customisable short series of complex parts. Additive manufacturing (AM) is expected to address this need with faster production times while keeping down costs per part. However, high set-up costs, lengthy manual post-processing and unpredictable defects in final products are preventing the full adoption of AM in the manufacturing of final products. As a solution, the EU-funded LMM project proposes lithography-based metal manufacturing (LMM). LMM is an innovative automated AM machine that can 3D-print any metal parts of any design with unparalleled accuracy. LMM can be easily used in existing metal injection moulding manufacturing lines, thereby reducing total production costs and time.
