Razvoj večosnega robotskega 3D tiskanja kompozitnih materialov / Entwicklung eines roboterunterstützten mehrachsigen 3D-Druckverfahrens für Verbundwerkstoffe

The main output of the project will be a robot cell for 3D printing of composite, light and natural materials. For this purpose, a new technology of 6-axial printing with fiber manipulator will be developed, which will enable manufacturing of geometrically more complex products from high-strength lightweight materials. The overall challenge of the program area we are solving with the cross-border cooperation in the project is the strengthening of research and technological development, competitiveness and innovation through synergic cooperation of R&D stakeholders (companies, R & D centres and higher education institutions). The overall objective of the project is, on the promising fields of mechanical engineering and robotics, to connect competent R&D stakeholders and existing knowledge in the program area and encourage the transfer of technology and expertise for developing new products, technologies and services, and thus contribute to improving economic cohesion and region’s competitiveness. Currently, R&D players are insufficiently cooperating; therefore it is coming to diversification and weaker activation of development potential in the region. There is a significant need for better cooperation. Battery box for electric vehicles will be an object, where the new technology and its potential will be demonstrated. The robot cell is designed as a mobile unit and will be available for all partners for demonstration and learning purpose.
Development institutions and the region’s economy, which is very closely related to the field of mechanical engineering, technological and computer-aided processes, as well as educational institutions and students, will acquire knowledge and benefit from outputs. The consortium consists of partners who have previous experience in this area. The results cannot be achieved without cross-border cooperation, as joint partnership brings together complementary strengths and added value.
