18 projects selected in Pulsate’s 1st open call

Network supports companies with implementation of LBAAM technologies

13.10.2022 - The projects selected by the Pulsate Consortium can start the support program and receive the grant to assess the feasibility of laser-based technology implementation in their environment.

The Pulsate network – funded with 7.9 million euros under EU’s Horizon 2020 program – is designed and dedicated to boosting the adoption of laser-based advanced and additive manufacturing (LBAAM) technology that empowers the European manufacturing industry digitalization.

Most of the winning proposals are related to the green economy and sustainable manufacturing – topics at the heart of the EC’s focus:

  1. GRAMLAS is a project created by Dausinger & Giesen GmbH from Germany that will develop a green additive manufacturing laser.
  2. BEAM – boost effectiveness with advanced manufacturing – is a proposal by iBreve Ltd from Ireland that aims to adopt LBAAM in the manufacturing of personal wearables & medical devices.
  3. RECREA is an application of laser technologies in the repair and overlays of large components developed by Hergome SL from Spain.
  4. The proposal of Andrási Edina ev from Hungary is LCPG – laser-cut elements for the production of customizable porcelain and glassware.
  5. 3D-Components AS from Norway bring AEROGRAM – additive manufacturing of complex and lightweight aero-structures using the laser.
  6. Italian Spem SRL presents ADI – an additive deIcing system for the aerospace industry.
  7. TATION is a project from Spain, brought by Mobility Ion Technologies SL, aiming to assess the implementation of LBAAM processes in the manufacturing of high-resolution ion mobility in analytical instrumentation.
  8. ABSORPTION is an application of LBAAM in laser beam shaping and automatic part recognition for high speed and quality fuel cell production, proposed by Optoprim Germany GmbH.
  9. Laser Riblets is an Austrian project proposed by Bionic Surface Technologies GmbH as investigations in microstructures for local flow behaviors produced through laser technique.
  10. REALISM – laser-based manufacturing with electrostatic discharge materials is a Portuguese proposal led by Favoritanswer Consultoria Em Engenharia Lda.
  11. MB Proints from Lithuania enters the program with LAMAS – laser additive manufacturing of aerodynamic separator.
  12. StreamOwl private company from Greece presented QUADLAM, a quadcopter frame with laser additive manufacturing.
  13. Weffan Ltd from the UK introduces a project connected with the textile industry – loom-state: 3D-woven garments.
  14. LADACOR is a proposal from Serbia by DOO Relja Junior Zrenjanin: laser cleaning, drilling, and cutting for improvement of the company’s market position and business model
  15. LEAN – lightweight end-of-arm tooling made using laser-based additive manufacturing is presented by Tricon Automation Ireland Ltd
  16. LF4 – laser plastic welding is brought by Euromodel Engineering SRL from Italy
  17. Beagle Optics UAB from Lithuania won their place in the program with LABOR – laser-based engraving of optical reticles.
  18. Microrelleus from Spain presented injected MLA manufacturing using femtosecond laser for engraving mold and mask.

The Pulsate Support Program for Adopters Use Cases will start in September 2022 and last for three months.

During the program, selected projects will receive up to 25,000 euros of funding and mentorship from Pulsate Consortium partners in conducting an assessment to confirm the technical and business feasibility of implementing laser-based technology in an adopter-specific environment.
