This 26 partner project focuses on the development of methods to allow direct energy deposition (DED) additive manufacturing processes to be applied reliably to the manufacture of large metallic parts.

CIV Mappin

The project team aim to increase production speed and the quality of parts produced. INTEGRADDE is expected to have significant impact in the aeronautical, mechanical, automotive and civil construction sectors and will involve working closely with end-users such as GKN Aerospace, ArcelorMittal, MX3D, Loiretech and CORDA.
