APEM is a SMART Eureka Project comprising of 7 partners from Spain and Ireland, with Croom Precision as the technical lead. The project has been awarded €1.9million in funding. The project will run for 24 months from March 2020.
The overall goal of this project is to achieve a step change in the quality and yield of components produced by metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) and as a result, deliver enhanced cost competitiveness.
This will be achieved through the development and improvement of design and simulation workflows, in-process control and post-process finishing tools.
IMR’s role in the project is that of supporting the companies to deliver business critical results that represent a tangible impact.
Integrate the various steps of the metal AM workflow in a continuous and seamless way to achieve improvements in cost and quality.
APEM-AM is a 2-year project funded by Smart Eureka and supported by Enterprise Ireland (EI). The project consortium consists of:
