Intelligent data-driven pipeline for the manufacturing of certified metal parts through Direct Energy Deposition process (INTEGRADDE)
INTEGRADDE aims to develop an end-to-end Digital Additive Manufacturing (AM) solution, based on DED technologies [i.e. Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) for manufacturing of complex geometries in medium-sized components with higher accuracy, and Wire-Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) for simpler geometries with higher deposition rates] enabling a cybersecured bidirectional dataflow for a seamless integration across the entire AM chain.
The goal is to develop a new manufacturing methodology capable of ensuring the manufacturability, reliability and quality of a target metal component from the initial product design.
INTEGRADDE combines research on building strategy optimisation, multi-scale and multi-physics modelling, hardware-independent building process, automatic building strategy generation, online self-adaptative control and inline quality assurance for the manufacturing of certified metal parts, addressing mass customisation manufacturing approach.
