Thanks to the constant commitment to Research and Development activities, MOLD&MOLD is successfully participating in two Horizon2020 projects financed by the European Community.

DREAM project
The first was started in 2016, in collaboration with public and private partners from six countries of the European Union (Eos, Ferrari and the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, just to name a few). The project has made it possible to develop Powder Bed Fusion technology (titanium, aluminum and steel powder laser fusion), thereby obtaining significant improvements in performance in terms of speed, costs, material use and reliability.

POWDER project
The second project was presented at the end of 2017 and is related to the development of a special powder to expand the target of customers who could potentially benefit from SLM technology. In this way, it will be possible to extend the benefits connected to the presence of conformal cooling channels (reduction in the cycle time and greater production efficiency) also to those customers that up until now were excluded. In February 2018, MOLD&MOLD was awarded the first phase of project financing by the European Community, and is currently developing the second phase.
