The industrialisation of Additive Manufacturing (AM) requires a holistic data manThe industrialisation of Additive
Manufacturing (AM) requires a holistic data management and integrated automation. INTEGRADDE aims to develop an endto-end Digital Manufacturing solution, enabling a cybersecured bidirectional dataflow for a seamless integration across the
entire AM chain.
The goal is to develop a new manufacturing methodology capable of ensuring the manufacturability, reliability and quality of
a target metal component from initial product design via Direct Energy Deposition (DED) technologies, implementing a zerodefect manufacturing approach ensuring robustness, stability and repeatibility of the process. To achieve this aim,
INTEGRADDE addresses following key innovations:
- Development of an intelligent data-driven AM pipeline.
- Combination of automatic topology optimisation algorithms for design, multi-scale process modelling, automated hardwareindependent process planning, online control and distributed NDT for the manufacturing of certified metal parts.
- A self-adaptive control is adopted focused on the implementation of non-propagation of defects strategy. Moreover, Data
Analytics will provide a continuous refinement by acquiring process knowledge to assist in the manufacturing of new metal
components, improving right-first-time production by adopting a mass customization approach
- Cybersecurity ensures data integrity along the AM workflow, providing a novel manufacturing methodology for the
certification of metal AM parts.
INTEGRADDE implements a twofold deployment approach for the pilot lines: both in application-driven at five industrial endusers (steel, tooling, aeronautics, and construction) and open-pilot networks at RTOs already owning AM infrastructure
(AIMEN, IREPA, CEA, WEST). This will allow a continuous validation and deployment of specific developments towards
industrialization, boosting definitive uptake of AM in EU metalworking sector.
