Implementation OF THE PROJECT

By creating new hybrid machines, equipped with both subtractive and additive manufacturing technologies, OpenHybrid will be a game changer for faster creation of new opportunities and applications for Additive Manufacturing (AM). This new solution, when implemented, will increase the level of robustness and repeatability of such industrial processes, will optimise and evaluate the increased performance of production lines in terms of productivity and cost-effectiveness and, finally, it will assess the sustainability, functionality and performance of the produced new materials. Beyond new parts production, this new manufacturing method will also allow for a very effective repair technique.

  • Defining the problem in greater technical detail and in agreeing a test methodology that meets the needs of the industrial partners.
  • Simultaneous development of the hybrid tools, modelling, control software and NDT solutions that will compromise the final system.
  • Integration and validation of the novel OpenHybrid system into a GF Mikron HPM800UST CNC machine and then on a large-scale industrial Güdel gantry system at MTC.
  • The performance of the OpenHybrid systems will be utilised to manufacture or repair a number of defined components within the power generation, mining and automotive sectors.
