NAME

Cell of additive manufacturing by SLM

DESCRIPTION

Pilot cell for the application and integral development of metallic additive manufacturing in powder bed tehcnologies.

It is provided companies with:
- Equipment (SLM equipment, generation1 (2007, upgrading 2015), generation 2 (2014, upgrading 2017), generation 3 (multilaser system, up to 4 lasers).
- Resources (systems for sieving and controlling the metallic powder flowability, sieve analysis…).
- Software (for the preprocess based on .STL and native CAD, Materialise, Autodesk). Software for the process simulation and distortion prediction (developed by IK4-LORTEK and commercial softwares GEONX, (GE Electric), Netfabb and Dassault 3D

Monitoring of SLM processes: this infrastructure is currently providing a series of sensors to the process data capture (process monitoring in a real time with thermal systems, image and acoustic emission systems). It is ready to stablish the required connectivity to ICTs platforms.

This facility can also improve by adding sensor systems and logic assets of other assets of the network.

The type of projects can cover from the introduction to the technology, testing, services and R&D projects.
