LAY2FORM

Efficient Material Hybridization by Unconventional Layup and Forming of Metals and Composites for Fabrication of Multifunctional Structures

REDUCED PRODUCTION COST AND TIME

Reduction of production time, through the integration of operations and the reduction of idling time between manufacturing steps.
Reduction of production cost through process integration and improved manufacturing quality.

RESOURCE EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENT

Resource efficiency improved by reducing the use of raw materials and energy consumption. Optimized materials usage, reduced energy consumption and savings in materials waste are the main contributors for higher resource efficiency within the LAY2FORM concept.

STRENGTHENED GLOBAL POSITION

Strengthened global position of European manufacturing industry through intensive implementation of innovative and unconventional technologies for the efficient production of advanced multifunctional hybrid components.

LOW CAPITAL INVESTMENT SOLUTIONS

LAY2FORM could be the technological solution for the manufacturing shift to mass customisation, boosting the efficiency and opening new markets of European SMEs
