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.

Offre d'emploi - thèse robotique

PhD proposal:

Robotic cell development for hybridization of multiple additive manufacturing process in view of large parts manufacturing.

The PhD will be commonly supervised by IREPA LASER, research and development center based in Strasbourg, offering industrial laser R&D and pioneer in metallic additive manufacturing; and by Pascal Institute, based in Clermont-Ferrand, within Machines, Mechanisms and Industrial Systems (MMSI) theme of the M3G axis.

The PhD is intended to be carried out jointly with a national industry-oriented 3 years project. It aims at developing a multi robot and multi processes system enabling large metallic parts (> 1 m) additive manufacturing. End users, partners in this project, are major industry leaders of energy, aeronautics and space.

In this scope, the main PhD objectives are:

  • To define the architecture of the cell and distribute robot/ parts mobilities
  • To optimize path planning of robots (for each process)
  • To implement monitoring means of the robot cell.

Applicant is expected to own strong skills concerning modelling of robotic systems and have good knowledges about metal AM processes.

>> 36 months employment contract / Approx. 2000 € gross earning + luncheon vouchers

Starting date: ASAP.

Amelie Thiriet, national winner for Best Master internship SF2M

Posted on


Amélie Thiriet, ENIM 2018 master trainee who did her internship at LEM3 under the direction of Laurent WEISS and Pascal LAHEURTE was national laureate of the best master course of the French Society of Mechanics and Materials (SF2M).

She will represent France in the European competition at the Euromat 2019 congress in Stockholm from September 1st to 5th!

This course was realized in collaboration between LEM3 and IREPA LASER. His subject was the crystallographic analysis of interfaces in gradient metal materials obtained by additive manufacturing. His work, both scientific and industrial, led to his first scientific publication.

To note that another enimienne is co-author of this study, Catherine SCHNEIDER-MAUNOURY who defended her thesis last December under the co-direction of Pascal LAHEURTE and Laurent WEISS. This CIFRE thesis focused on the study of function gradient materials obtained by the DED-CLAD process, and was carried out at IREPA LASER in ILLKIRCH.
