MM TECH

New aerospace advanced cost effective materials and rapid manufacturing technologies

MM TECH

MMTech is a European project that seeks to develop new methods and technologies for the production of parts made from gamma-TiAl alloys which are particularly attractive for the aerospace industry because of their high potential, low density and high mechanical properties even at elevated temperatures. The centre will apply its benchmark advanced manufacturing technologies in machining these alloys. Specifically, it will research how to improve the dynamic behaviour of machines and tooling used for machining and active and passive damping of vibrations. IK4-IDEKO provides key knowledge in advanced manufacturing techniques in the machining process of parts. This project is framed within the Horizon 2020 program.

THE CHALLENGE

The goal of the project is to optimise and simplify the manufacturing process of Y-TiAl alloys (gamma titanium aluminides) which up until now has been complex and costly.
The main technological challenges are first of all an optimisation of the entire chain of production of y-TiAl by homogenisation of the sintering process, the development of an additive manufacturing process and streamlining the machining process with advanced manufacturing technologies.

THE RESULT

Through this project, we gain more knowledge of machining aeronautical parts of y-TiAl, a material with complex machinability, for which equally complex technical solutions are required. These solutions are applicable to other less complex materials used in aeronautics.
The technology centre will also develop specific devices for passive and active vibration damping to facilitate the machining process.
