Multi-head Additive Manufacturing with Optimal HPC Thermal Stabilization (AMOTS)
As part of FF4euroHPC, a European initiative to make it easier for small and medium-sized enterprises to access high-performance computers (HPCs) and related technologies, funding has been approved for the "Multi-head Additive Manufacturing with Optimal HPC Thermal Stabilization (AMOTS)" experiment. The holder of the AMOTS experiment is Mikrotvornica, a domestic company specializing in prototyping and small production batches using 3D printers, which will implement the experiment in cooperation with the Ruđer Bošković Institute and the Center for Informatics and Computing and the Rijeka company Yotta Advanced Computing, from which you will gain experience and professional support in the application of HPC technology for successful project execution.
The goal of the AMOTS project (or its full name Multi-head Additive Manufacturing with Optimal HPC Thermal Stabilization) is to establish and anticipate the impact of heat on machine design and system by checking within the simulation of HPC infrastructure use which should result in improved assembly and calibration of the machine itself.
The experiment will last a year, and with it we could contribute to the improvement of additive production in working with engineering materials and minimize the possibility of error - that is, unwanted dimensional instability of the produced 3D printed piece.
