Additive Manufacturing is the future in the frame of Industry 4.0. A number of advantages are benefited: flexibility, rate and reduced environmental impact. Namely, improvements on metals have been achieved, thus allowing to develop specific technologies for high-standard parts.
Redesign in “think additive” approach, job-planning and fabrication are offered by LIAM with eventual dimensional checks, mechanical, metallographic and structural testing. Two state-of-the-art technologies (powder bed and Directed Energy Deposition) are available at LIAM.
