ADMIRE successfully achieved its goals

Posted on

« 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. »

ADMIRE results

« 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”. »

Project partners

« 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. »

Machine FormUp 700

Posted on

The new PBF machine FormUp 700 of AddUp was unveiled at Formnext 2019, the leading exhibition and conference dedicated to additive manufacturing and all of its upstream and downstream processes.

This new machine is equipped with 4 lasers 500W for up to +300% productivity increase. With a build enveloppe of 700 x 350 x 500, it allows extra large build volume in additive manufacturing.

This first 4 lasers machine demonstrator was developed for IREPA LASER.

ESO engineers trained in laser safety

Posted on

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.

ADMIRE project – Newsletter #2

Posted on

Discover the July newsletter of the ADMIRE project: ADMIRE – Newsletter # 2

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.
