Demonstration of Infrastructure for Digitalization enabling industrialization of Additive Manufacturing (DiDAM)

Purpose and goal: DIDAM develops and demonstrates priority parts of the digital infrastructure required to industrialize Additiv Tillverkning (AM). Manufacturers, suppliers of digital platforms, together with institutes and universities represent actors in a complex value chain The goal is to demonstrate ways to ensure traceability (digital threads) and improved product and process quality through modeling / simulation with digital twins which will lead to -30% fewer errors in printing, -50% need for external quality tests and -15% shorter set times. Expected results and effects: More efficient digitized management of data and information in additive manufacturing in complex value chains, which reduces the risk and problems of industrialization of additive manufacturing and enables the introduction of sustainable products. Expected results on 1. More efficient digital information flow by using and establishing standards. 2. More efficiently sharing information in new industrial value chains 3. Utilizing resource efficient production, and re-manufacturing of products Demonstrate the digital infrastructure required for industrialization of AM. Approach and implementation: The industrial participants provide real and realistic Use Cases (WP1) where efficient digitization to be able to industrialize additive manufacturing, specifically where new industrial value chains are required. Technology development (WP2) is focused on more efficient and secure information flows (digital twin) and improved traceability (digital thread) of data and information. Great emphasis is placed on planning and implementing demonstrators (WP3), partly in collaboration with the EU project Manuela. A refined plan is an early deliverable in the project.
