Joint UK/EU project to scale-up additive manufacturing


A new UK and European consortium made up of engineering firms, academic leaders and scale-ups has been formed to increase Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) productivity.

The project, known as LAMM, brings together four specialist organisations with the aim of achieving substantial improvements in deposition rates and printing efficiency. 

To aid in reaching its goal, LAMM has received €428,000 of funding from EIT Manufacturing (EITM), an organisation formed in 2019 that strives towards making Europe a global manufacturing hub. 

By scaling up its WAAM productivity, LAMM intends to mature the highest deposition rate WAAM kit on the market, more than doubling what is currently possible across all WAAM process.
