The flex-tool project will tackle a global solution for an innovative hybrid manufacturing process that will combine laser material deposition additive manufacturing technique with 5 axis milling, in order to produce medium-large-scale forming tooling. Th
Creation of a platform to stimulate r&d/technology transfer dealing with laser/optics technologies/their applications, e.G. In processing industries, in order to initiate projects emphasizing cooperation between industry/r & d instititions.
Smart aim is to boost the competitiveness, growth and attractiveness of the european discrete manufacturing industries through the promotion of r&d&i in an open community of large industries, smes, rtos, academia and user organizations.
