The HTA offers leading Additive Manufacturing platform for innovative process and product development, aiming covering the full-chain manufacturing for polymers and metals.

Enabling Augmented Manufacturing: the goal of the platform

  • Play a pivotal role in AM developments for the successful market uptake in target sectors such as Health, Aerospace, Automotive, Electronics and Energy.
  • Be one of the pillars in 4D-Printing development: combination of the 3D printing and the fourth dimension for integration of functionalities in AM-built parts
  • Fabricate a lightweight and functional complexity 3D parts with a high quality
  • Integrating effectively the Industry 4.0 approaches by increasing process automation and by using digital twin approaches
  • Contribute to the Standardization of AM processes for the long-term perspective and LCA approaches

Areas of focus:

  • energy efficiency and advanced design,
  • modelling and simulations,
  • development of the raw materials
  • material microstructure and material recyclability
  • automated monitoring and control mechanisms
