« Additive Manufacturing (AM), commonly known as 3D printing, has been growing significantly in the past decades, and nowadays is a field with high impact on European economic growth […]. The breakthroughs of AM over time brought new challenges to Industry, including the need for highly qualified professionals to deal with them. In addition, AM knowledge was scattered among companies, Universities and Research & Development institutions. There was an urgent need to establish a strong connection between those sectors […]. Thus, developing and establishing a solid connection between Universities, Research Centers and Companies working in AM was the main purpose of ADMIRE – Alliance for ADditive Manufacturing between Industry and UniveRsitiEs. »
« In line with this main objective, ADMIRE project focused on creating an innovative European Metal AM Engineer MSc course, with inputs from major key stakeholders from Industry and Education (within and outside ADMIRE consortium) to reply to the urgent industrial need for highly qualified personnel in Metal AM Process Engineering and Metal AM Coordination »
« In addition, ADMIRE project also designed and developed specific exchange of knowledge strategies focused on promoting connections and collaboration between stakeholders from Industry and Education. Among them are “AM World Café Meetings” and “Knowledge Speed-Datings”. »
« ADMIRE partnership comprises eight partners, connected to Education/Research & Technology and to Industry/Business. They are, respectively: Cranfield University and University of Birmingham (UK), University of Bremen (DE), Instituto Superior Técnico (PT), and GKN Aerospace, MTC – Manufacturing Technology Center (UK) IREPA Laser (FR) and EWF – European Federation for Welding, Joining and Cutting. »
IREPA LASER is happy to become one of the technological partners of JANUS Engineering.
IREPA LASER, specialist in laser and additive manufacturing technologies, has invested in the global additive suite of NX: CAO, Simulation, CAM AM (SLM and DED) and will also collaborate with JANUS Engineering and SIEMENS on the development of the process simulation module dedicated to multi-axis deposition.
The European Southern Observatory (ESO) has selected IREPA LASER for the training of its engineers in laser safety.
The system of Four Laser Guide Star Facility is an important part of the adaptive optics system installed on the Very Large Telescope (VLT) of the European Southern Observatory at the Paranal Observatory in Chile.
IREPA LASER is proud to be among the drivers behind the European initiative « INTEGRADDE ».
INTEGRADDE networks already owning AM infrastructure – such as IREPA LASER – will allow a continuous validation and deployment of specific developments towards industrialization, boosting definitive uptake of AM in EU metalworking sector.
IREPA LASER is a key partner in the process development for DED technologies planned in the project, with a main focus on LMD applications.
IREPA LASER is participating in the ADMIRE project to develop a new curriculum, the European Master Degree in Metal Additive Manufacturing (A.M.). The ADMIRE project (knowledge Alliance for Additive Manufacturing between Industry and universities) is a European program, supported by the Erasmus + program of the European Commission. Its goal is to fill the gap in the academical educational system in the field of additive manufacturing. At the same time, it is intended to respond to an urgent industrial need: the qualification of Additive Manufacturing workforce.
This project aims to establish a solid relationship between companies working in the AM supply chain, research centers and universities. Four universities are associated in this project, two in the United Kingdom, one in Germany and one in Portugal. As a recognized expert in additive manufacturing, IREPA LASER is involved in this project for the technological development part.
Laser Processing for Industry (PLI), the annual meeting in France for laser solution providers and decision-makers from the industry will be held from 25 to 26 September 2019 in Colmar exhibition center.
Acknowledged expert for more than 30 years, IREPA LASER has developed a partners’ network with the best specialists in research and innovation related to laser technology : professional organizations, engineering schools, specialized companies …
