Flexibel manufacturing of functional copper-based products (FAMCOP)

Flexibel manufacturing of functional copper-based products (FAMCOP)

Project time: 2016 – 2018

Budget: 6 300 000 kronor

Funding: SIP Produktion2030

The aim of the project is to demonstrate utilization of additive manufacturing for copper-based products and process solutions and faster adaption

The aim of the project is to contribute to the utilization of emerging technologies such as additive manufacturing as enablers for innovative products and process solutions and faster adaption to market needs. The project addresses the area of Flexible Production, where combination of increased flexibility with novel product realization capability and shortened lead time will provide new competitive solutions when there is significant material cost involved. This will be demonstrated through the selected target applications regarding induction coils and copper-based parts.

The project addresses the powder-bed based AM-techniques selective laser melting and binder jetting. For each target application, the project covers the whole production chain from powder supply, powder tailoring and AM processing to design and end user or product owner assessment. The work includes the design for AM-fabricated Cu-parts, materials-driven process optimization and development of demonstrators and their assessment. Efforts will also include national and international results dissemination.

Sustainable Metal Powder Utilization in Powder Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing

This project intends to design and develop a new test methodology for evaluation of power flowability in powder bed fusion (PBF) systems. The test apparatus will simulate powder flow in PBF machines and can be used for optimizing the powder layering behavior for potential utilization of alternative powder qualities. Additionally, this equipment creates opportunities for both powder producers and AM part manufacturers to minimize powder waste and maximize material utilization.

Infrastructure for Digitalization enabling industrialization of Additive manufacturinG – IDAG

IDAG aim to identify gaps and propose actions for the digital infrastructure necessary to industrialize additive manufacturing technologies. Actors from a new type of value chain of manufacturing companies – from powder to product – collaborate with digital solution providers and researchers to understand the needs and articulate the necessary actions through analysis of industrial cases. The target is to deliver a description in the form of a roadmap for how these actions can be developed and provided in order to ensure flexible and scalable digital platforms for additive manufacturing value chains.

Humle – Human Perspective, Machine-Learning ERP-systems

This project aims to contribute to the development of future ERP-systems. The project will explore how to offer work, redefine work roles and challenge companies to make use of advanced systems support and the technology within and around these. Overall, the project aims to contribute to the development of both the next generation of ERP-systems and a complementary change in the way firms see upon work organization, so that technology can support and meet the needs of the humans within organisations rather than enforcing structures upon them.
