Studenten van onze samenwerkingspartner de Betafactory werkten mee aan onderstaand project.
“Industrial spare parts should always be available wherever they’re needed, whenever they’re needed.” A phrase in which RAMLAB sees additive manufacturing as potential to enable a wide scale availability of on-demand metal parts. At the moment RAMLAB is researching the use of wire-arc additive manufacturing to make parts for the maritime industry. Consequently, the surface of the printed parts is too rough (as the image below illustrated) and needs to be grinded and smoothened until within product tolerances. Which done manually, is a time-consuming process.
