Additive manufacturing is for everyone
Additive manufacturing is within everyone’s reach, from large companies to SMEs: CIM4.0 supports businesses and bridges the gap of knowledge on technology. We cover the entire value chain for Additive Manufacturing processes, from creating 3D models, through manufacturing, to final processing and component inspection.
New product development
Process parameters optimization
Prototype and pre-series production
Technological and business analysis for comparison with conventional production
Customized training courses and workshops
Using the most recent technologies, a deep knowledge of Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) and the experience of consortium members in product engineering, CIM4.0 takes advantage of AM to help companies improving their performance, overcoming their limits and bringing their product to the next level.
CIM4.0 team is able to develop a unique set of process parameters specifically customized based on the requirements of your products. By optimizing such parameters, it is possible to maximize:
- Single parts functionality
- Production speed
- Post-processes optimization (supports removal, surface refining, microstructure,…)
Thanks to the experience and competences of the consortium partners, particularly concerning the automotive and aerospace industries, CIM4.0 is able to support the certification of Additive Manufacturing parts and processes, aligning them to various regulations’ parameters.
CIM4.0 Pilot Line directly analyses and monitors all production processes and phases, from consultancy during design, to material selection and process development, including post-processing and final inspection.
We assess the suitability of AM to your products and trace an implementation path, taking into account your industrial reality needs and features. Through planned strategic choices and a deep evaluation of associated costs, risks and benefits, CIM4.0 is able to guide you in exploiting AM technologies for the benefit of your company.
AM is a rapidly evolving technology; CIM4.0 helps companies gaining knowledge on how to use it. With the Learning hub and the Academy training paths, we have developed a complete range of AM courses exploiting the assets of the pilot line, to train Managers, operational technicians, designers and process technologists, showing them how to concretely bring innovation to their company.
