What is the AM-platform?

The AM-platform is a free of charge virtual central European area for all subject related to Additive Manufacturing (hereafter named AM)

The objective of the AM-platform is to contribute to a coherent strategy, understanding, development, dissemination and exploitation of AM.

AM is fragmented. Lots of organizations are working or doing research in this area but there is no coherent strategy and several interpret the subject differently. There is no central organization or place for peoples to for instance ask questions, to start a discussion, to find expertise, or to up- or download an interesting paper or article.

This platform helps to achieve the Lisbon & Gothenburg objectives as defined by the EC (to become the most dynamic and most competitive knowledge-based economy by 2010 and achieving sustainability by 2030).

The AM-platform is active since 2007 (formerly as the RM-platform)

Funding opportunity: 1st Technology Transfer Experiments Open Call PULSATE

PULSATE targets the greatest impact on potential manufacturing sectors accounting from those with a solid track of use of LBAAM technologies and also from those being currently underrepresented: aerospace (aeronautics), automotive, medical devices, industrial machinery, customised electronics and textile & clothing.

The main results achieved from the execution of the experiments will include the development of innovative laser-based equipment, processes, ancillary equipment, and software, looking for solutions particularly adapted to flexible production environments, typical in SMEs, and the digital tools which improve the productivity, flexibility, and traceability, lowering the entry barriers.

Technology Transfer Experiments (TTEs), the main benefit for each participant will be:
- For the supplier: a new product ready to the manufacturing sector needs
- For the end-user: the validation of a prototype system applied to its specific operational environment.

Selected TTEs will become part of the 13-month PULSATE Support Programme during which PULSATE partners will offer a full set of services to companies around the following pillars:

  • Technical support from industry experts
  • Business development support
  • Up to €150k funding per experiment
  • Media exposure
  • Access to private and public funding

The TTEs have to be proposed by a Consortium including a minimum 2 SMEs and/or slightly bigger companies acting as :

  • Technology provider (System Integrators): any entity which designs, builds or rebuilds, programs, installs, modifies, distributes, or supplies systems and/or technology for LBAAM.
  • Manufacturing company (End-user/Technology adopter): any entity that deals with the physical or chemical transformation of materials or components into new products.

Asturias region, Spain-the Additive manufacturing land

Asturias Region is a great location opportunity for additive manufacturing companies thanks to the advantages it offers for this sector such as available space and its developed R&D+I ecosystem.

The region has multiple industrial parks with the capacity to install companies in the additive manufacturing sector.Moreover, there are several accelerators for AM industrilization and business incubators centers for companies and many examples of applications including sectors such as aerospace adnd heatlh.
