Consortium Partners

The AVLAM consortium includes partners from the different parts of the development and supply chain needed to raise the TRL's involved in the different aspects of the project. Two end-users, one material supplier, one software developer and two RTO’s are involved.

Facilities available to the consortium include:
  • 3 MCP Realizer Selective Laser Melting systems including vacuum, pre-heat capabilities
  • 7kW IPG fibre laser using a high accuracy Kuka robot
  • Trumpf DMD505 laser deposition equipment using a 2kW CO2 laser
  • Huffman HC-205 laser deposition equipment using a 2.5kW PRC CO2 laser
  • Accufusion Laser Consolidation
  • EOS M270 laser melting system
  • Labs with extensive analysis equipment, including metallography with optical and scanning electron microscopy.
  • Extensive range of non-destructive techniques
  • Extensive range of mechanical testing techniques
