PULSATE Network is designed and dedicated to boosting the adoption of laser-based advanced and additive manufacturing (LBAAM) technology that will empower the European Manufacturing industry digitalization has launched its 2nd open call for Technology Transfer Experiments (TTE).

The TTE is an end-user-relevant case study applicable to laser-based equipment for the Advanced and Additive Manufacturing market, within one of the following areas of experimentation:

  • Laser equipment integration, interoperability, and robust automation,
  • Technology for cost-effective laser-based manufacturing,
  • First part right and zero-defect laser-based production,
  • Flexible technology for small to large batches;
  • From CAD to PLM: data integration and flow

Who Can Participate?

  • A consortium of minimum 2 companies acting as Technology Provider (System Integrator) and Adopter / End User (Manufacturing Company)
  • SMEs or Slightly bigger legal status of all consortium partners is required
  • Companies legally established in the EU Member State or Associated Country
  • Experiments should have a minimum TRL level between 5 -7

How to Apply?

  • Proposals should be submitted by the 29th of July 2022 at 17:00 CEST (Brussels Time) through the link here.

We have also prepared a number of useful documents that will support the participants in writing the winning proposal. All the resources including webinars could be found here: https://pulsate-tte.fundingbox.com/pages/OCdocuments.

Why is LBAAM Adoption so Important?

The Laser-Based Advanced and Additive Manufacturing technology (LBAAM) represents a turning point for many industries that are looking to achieve flexible manufacturing solutions and highly digitalized production environments.

Many of these environments, such as robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things that are involving the LBAAM technology, are revealing extremely beneficial outcomes for sectors such as Aerospace, Automotive, Medical Devices, and Industrial Machinery, Customized Electronics, and Textile clothing.

The main drivers when boosting the competitiveness of EU manufacturing are production costs and time-to-market reduction, quality and flexibility improvement, access to skills and knowledge, risk reduction and market access.

Here PULSATE plays a key role as it brings together a strong Consortium comprising six competence centers (AIMEN, FTMC, MTC, SINTEF, Fraunhofer, and CEA) with high-level expertise in LBAAM and digitization, the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC) to support the acceleration of EU innovative scale-up initiatives, and two highly innovative SMEs (CLESGO & Fundingbox).
