H2020-NMBP-2016-2017 - seeking manufacturing facilities and end-users from automotive and aerospace industries to complete the consortium and develop additive manufacturing process for high strength aluminium composites
Summary:
A German university is planning to submit a proposal in the H2020-NMBP-2016-2017 call, topic: Architectured/Advanced material concepts for intelligent bulk material structures. The project aim is the development of an additive manufacturing process for high strength aluminium composites. To complete the consortium it seeks additive manufacturing facilities and end-users from automotive and aerospace industries who want to replace current parts by light-weight and high performance materials.
Description:
German university specializes in materials test engineering, particularly in modern additive manufacturing processes using laser or electron beams.

The university is experienced in European projects and it is now preparing a project proposal for the Call for Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology and Production H2020-NMBP-2016-2017, topic: Architectured /Advanced material concepts for intelligent bulk material structures.

Project idea:
The project is related to development of aluminium matrix composites by additive manufacturing for improving cyclic strength as well as the potential of light-weighting the components.

Aluminium structures are being increasingly employed in industry due to favorable combination of their strength and weight, corrosion and wear resistance as well as flowability. These properties enable their application in aerospace, automotive as well as construction industries.

Powder-based additive manufacturing offers the potential of light-weighting the structures. The process imparts a peculiar very fine microstructure due to high cooling rates involved in the process which can increase the strength of the structures.

Metal-matrix composites enhance the mechanical properties by adding reinforcement particles in µm or nm range. However, after reinforcement with the particles, the resulting materials are difficult to be machined.

The project aims at combining reinforcements in aluminium matrix and processing them with additive manufacturing, which is expected to give synergic benefits of both the procedures. Manufacturing of these parts to the final component by additive manufacturing offers a potential process for the combination of light-weighting and functional enhancement. The cooling rate in additive manufacturing also introduces in-process precipitation which can further improve the strength.

Anticipated Project Budget: -Y-euro; 1-2 million
Project Duration: 3-4 years

Consortium:
The planned consortium will consist of the value chain from powder manufacturing, processing, design, reliability testing to end-users. Current consortium consists of powder developers, additive manufacturing facilities, end-users and partners specialized on reliability testing.

The university is still looking for partners to complete the consortium: additional additive manufacturing facilities and end-users from automotive / aerospace industries for research collaboration.

Deadline for call is 27. October 2016.
Deadline for expressions of interest is 15. August 2016.
Stage of Development:
Proposal under development

Partner sought

Partner Sought:
German university is looking for following partners to complete the existing consortium: · additive manufacturing facilities · end-users Partners sought are expected from automotive / aerospace industries and their suppliers who want to replace current parts by light-weight and high performance materials. Partners can be SMEs or big enterprises. However, SMEs are preferred. Partner should be willing to invest in the research project, where partial grant will be requested for each partners from the funding agency. The role of partner will be to select the parts to be replaced, their integration with joining components and functional testing after the parts are built.
