4D aims to introduce a novel multilevel hybridization concept: it is possible (1) to combine elementary processes in one hybrid module, (2) to create with them hybrid machine tools/robots, base for (3) a new generation of advanced hybrid production lines.
4D main objective is to develop a new concept of hybrid additive manufacturing based on the modular integration of compact, low cost modules including laser source, deposition head, sensors and control.

Profile Description

4D enables unprecedented possibility to exploit the potential of AM techniques: the same certified process may be used in different places / phases of product life cycle: for initial production, for defective parts inspection/recovery, for in situ repairing operations.
4D will demonstrate the effective application to aerospace, oil & gas, and power generation equipment. The concept can be further exploited in automotive, railway, ship building with a huge potential in the global market.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 723795.
