WELCOME SIXTH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMME
PRIORITY 4
AERONAUTICS AND SPACE
The aim of FANTASIA is to contribute towards winning global leadership for European aeronautics by developing new flexible and near-net-shape additive manufacturing chains and repair techniques using laser metal deposition (LMD) and direct laser forming (DLF) processes. These techniques, in combination with conventional manufacturing processes, offer the possibility to realise a breakthrough in the manufacturing of aero-engine parts.
In particular, the following potential can be achieved:
New design possibilities using the nearly unlimited geometrical freedom of DLF
Decrease time efforts in the whole life cycle of a part in the design and/or redesign phase, subsequent manufacturing and the repair phase
Savings in production and raw material costs due to reduced time effort and raw material quantity to be used in generative manufacturing
Processability of conventional nickel and titanium base alloys as well as upcoming advanced materials like TiAl and Udimet 720
