High performance Production line for Small Series Metal Parts

Objective

The general objective of Hyproline is to strengthen the competitiveness of the European industry by introducing manufacturing methods, which will allow companies to 1) reduce time-to-market and number of rejects, 2) make more customized and innovative products with a higher market value, and 3) make products > 20% more accurate with considerable savings (>30%) in consump-tion of waste metal, fluids and services, with an equivalent reduction of CO2 emission.
By further developing the manufacturing process itself as well as by research and application work on materials, pre and post treatment of the parts produced and supporting software Hyproline adds capabilities to commercially available manufacturing systems, in terms of speed, product quality and versatility.
By keeping focus on the entire process from conceptual outline of the product via product design, engineering and production planning to actual manufacturing and control of quality, the project contributes to the development of a versatile manufacturing process, suited for industrial produc-tion by SMEs of complex custom made metal (meso scale = order 10 mm) parts in small batches or even in one-of-a-kind production mode.
The Hyproline manufacturing concept will be demonstrated by its pilot implementation for
serial production of customized high quality meso parts for two different industrial sectors of (1) electronics and (2) aerospace.
