Once again the results are not long in coming: two 3D printed prototypes, born from the partnership between Desamanera and BAM, the German federal research center, within the AMITIE project, were on display at the Hannover Messe 2019 where in recent days the numerous visitors have seen them in person and touched their complexity.
The Hannover Messe is one of the most important worldwide showcases in the field of innovation and new technologies: every year it welcomes international exhibitors ranging from R&D to industrial automation, from IT to Energy and Environment Technology, and counts more than 200,000 visitors per edition, from all over the world. This year the fair took place from 1 to 5 April and focused on digital and industrial transformation,with the aim of promoting an interconnected, automated and global industry.
The research project that involves us is only one of the four presented at the international fair by BAM. Acronym of the German Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung, that means Federal Institute for research and testing of materials, BAM is the research center led by the German Ministry of Economy and Technology, whose mission is to improve the safety of chemistry, technology and materials, through research and development activities, tests, analyses, issue of permits, advices and information. The collaboration between BAM and Desamanera is solid long before now, born thanks to the AMITIE project and already witnessed in this article, written when Prof. Jens Günster and his team spent three weeks working in our laboratory.
The AMITIE project, which began in 2017 and is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 with the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions, has the objective of promoting research and innovation in the sector of Additive Manufacturing of Ceramic materials through a program of international and intersectoral staff exchanges between the partner companies.
