Why LBAAM Adoption is so important?
The Laser-Based Advanced and Additive Manufacturing technology (LBAAM) represents a turning point for many industries that are looking to achieve flexible manufacturing solutions and highly digitalised production environments.
Many of these environments, such as robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things that are involving the LBAAM technology, are revealing extremely beneficial outcomes for sectors such as Aerospace, Automotive, Medical Devices, Industrial Machinery, Customised Electronics, and Textile clothing.
The main drivers when boosting the competitiveness of EU manufacturing are production costs and time-to-market reduction, quality and flexibility improvement, access to skills and knowledge, risk reduction and market access.
Here PULSATE plays a key role as it brings together a strong Consortium comprising six competence centres (AIMEN, FTMC, MTC, SINTEF, Fraunhofer and CEA) with high-level expertise in LBAAM and digitisation, the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC) to support the acceleration of EU innovative scale-up initiatives, and two highly innovative SMEs (CLESGO &Fundingbox).
