Last November, 15th,2017 it was held in Oeiras the event organised by the AM-Motion H2020 CSA project. Its aim was to determine a “strategic approach to increasing Europe’s value proposition for Additive Manufacturing technologies and capabilities”.
Within the event structure, the organisers provide the appropriate tools to put in common the way each AM European project can contribute to address the bottlenecks of these technologies to be fully deployed in the industry scope. A very interesting roadmap will be furtherly issued with all the contributions that could be used for the SAMT SUDOE feedback.
The event ended with a large B2B networking event in which the assistants could show expressions of interest for interactions and potential joint exploitation of the projects expected outputs. The SAMT SUDOE project received four expressions of interest in the results of the project and further cooperation.
This event showed how European AM manufacturing is taking-off within the industry and will become an important factor to increase the added value of the organisations that aim to have the latest technology in the manufacturing system. Technology will be highly relevant for the mould making and the plastic processor industries and is mandatory that companies rapidly uptake them, which is one of the main objectives of the SAMT Sudoe project.
