VINCI 7D - Functional Print
In order to respond to the increasing demands of the industry, this consortium intends to innovate the industrial process of printing in three-dimensional parts, adopting more automatic and robotic mechanisms, and less dependent on manual processes and mechanical setups. In addition, it is intended to promote the implementation of a technology that allows the innovation of multi-ink printing parts, allowing the creation of sensors and actuators on its surface. Thus, concepts will be developed for a robotization system on 3D surfaces. This will be achieved by integrating decorative and functional printheads with a robotic arm, coupled with 3D mapping technology, and a communication protocol between robot and print heads.
Besides that, it is intended to promote the implementation, in the automotive sector, of a technology that allows product innovation, increasing the complexity of design without increasing the complexity of construction and production. On the other hand, it promotes the competitiveness of the sector and, in parallel, supports process efficiency by reducing time and procedures whose guarantees economic benefits for the printing industry in plastics for automotive applications, among others.
