Thermoelectric Materials for the direct conversion of heat into electric current
MBN is working on the development of customized tool steel powders for additive manufacturing via Laser Cladding, targeting new applications in the sector of moulds for automotive.
Material development and customization is supported by state-of-the-art material modelling tools, being connected and made interoperable through the MarketPlace project. Within MarketPlace, a central-hub for all the material-modelling related activities connects modelling software developers, database owners, translators and manufacturing communities across Europe by a collaborative approach. MBN is contributing to the rapid deployment of novel material modelling solutions in the scope of advanced alloys for additive manufacturing, playing its role in the validation and demonstration activities of the project.
Fast-Smart project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. Grant agreement 862289.
