The aim of this project is to develop and implement a complete additive manufacturing system with a maximum construction area of 12 meters, which will be able to process both thermoplastics and thermosets using extrusion processes. This system will be able to create parts with dimensions close to the final ones, which will then be machined to the desired dimensions.

As current needs are based on development supported by the circular economy, it is extremely important that the products developed are recyclable when they reach the end of their life.

The value proposition presented by this project can be defined as the development of molds and products using innovative and sustainable additive manufacturing techniques for thermoplastics and thermosets that enable the development of high quantity products.
