O Porriño, 13th of May of 2022.- PULSATE Network designed and dedicated to boost the adoption of laser-based advanced and additive manufacturing (LBAAM) technology that will empower the European Manufacturing industry digitalization has just launched its 2nd Open Call for Technology Transfer Experiments (TTE).
The TTE is an end-user-relevant case study applicable to laser-based equipment for the Advanced and Additive Manufacturing market, within one of the following areas of experimentation:
- Laser equipment integration, interoperability, and robust automation
- Technology for cost-effective laser-based manufacturing
- First part right and zero-defect laser-based production
- Flexible technology for small to large batches
- From CAD to PLM: data integration and flow
Who can participate?
- A consortium of minimum 2 companies acting as Technology Provider (System Integrator) and Adopter / End User (Manufacturing Company)
- SMEs or Slightly bigger legal status is required.
- Companies legally established in the EU Member State or Associated Country.
- Experiments should have a minimum TRL level between 5 -7

Why LBAAM Adoption is so important?
The Laser-Based Advanced and Additive Manufacturing technology (LBAAM) represents a turning point for many industries that are looking to achieve flexible manufacturing solutions and highly digitalised production environments.
Many of these environments, such as robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things that are involving the LBAAM technology, are revealing extremely beneficial outcomes for sectors such as Aerospace, Automotive, Medical Devices, Industrial Machinery, Customised Electronics, and Textile clothing.
The main drivers when boosting the competitiveness of EU manufacturing are production costs and time-to-market reduction, quality and flexibility improvement, access to skills and knowledge, risk reduction and market access.
Here PULSATE plays a key role as it brings together a strong Consortium comprising six competence centres (AIMEN, FTMC, MTC, SINTEF, Fraunhofer and CEA) with high-level expertise in LBAAM and digitisation, the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC) to support the acceleration of EU innovative scale-up initiatives, and two highly innovative SMEs (CLESGO &Fundingbox).
