Institute of Non-Ferrous Metals in Gliwice joins the project of high-performance 3D printing technology


The Institute of Non-Ferrous Metals in Gliwice is the leader of the “3DMPWIRE – High-Efficiency 3D Printing Technology using the wire in the form of a Cu-based wire”.

As part of the project, the production technology will be developed from copper-based alloys, using 3DMP (3D Wire Printing Arc Additive Manufacturing) of components resistant to aggressive corrosive marine environments. The technology developed in the project will be used to produce blades for marine turbines, propellers and other elements for applications in the maritime industry.

The Upscaling project financed under the European Institute of Innovation and Technology Raw Materials is carried out in a consortium composed of: Institute of Non-Ferrous Metals (Poland); Gefertec GmbH (Germany); Tecnalia (Spain); ENEA (Italy) and Ghent University (Belgium).
