PROJECT INFORMATION

HyProCell is about combining already available laser-based additive manufacturing (LBAM) machines with ICT modules resulting in integrated multiprocess production cells.

HyProCell is demonstrated in the context of two pilot applications and three business cases. Each pilot application includes the combination of at least one additive and one subtractive manufacturing machine. The pilots are organised according to the additive technology: Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) and Selective Laser Melting (SLM).

The target industrial sectors are Power Generation, Aerospace and General Manufacturing.

OBJECTIVES

.

objectives

HyProCell’s general objectives are:

  • To develop and demonstrate a new concept of multiprocess production cell.
  • To implement them at industrial level and validate them in pilot facilities.

CHALLENGES

challenges

HyProCell tackles both technological and industrial challenges, as it aims to implement lab validated technologies in industrial facilities.

HyProCell has direct technological and industrial impacts, as well as indirect environmental and social ones.

IMPACT

impact

HyProCell has direct technological and industrial impacts, as well as indirect environmental and social ones. All of them are timely considering the need to increase Europe’s competitiveness in global markets, comply with environmental policies and creation of highly skilled jobs.
