SIEMENS TO LEAD GERMANY’S INDUSTRIAL ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING PLAN

Siemens has assumed the role of project management for Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) grant project Industrial implementation of digital engineering and additive manufacturing (IDEA).

A collaborative venture, IDEA aims to reduce development and production times in powder-based AM by about 50%. One of the proposed outcomes of the project is enabling AM for series production.

The 3-year IDEA project is part of the Line Integration of AM Processes (LAF) funding initiative, from BMBF under the Photonic Research Germany program. This grant funds just under €14 million.
