Robust and Light AM Components for Military Systems

ROBUST AND LIGHT AM COMPONENTS FOR MILITARY SYSTEMS (ROLIAC) addresses the topic on “New materials and technologies for additive manufacturing defence applications” by developing and showcasing the potential within “Additive Manufacturing for Lightweight Parts”

The ROLIAC consortium is a strong and experienced partnership comprising a wide range of partners from many EU countries and with a strong support from several Ministries of Defence (MODs). The ROLIAC consortium has an excellent technical base within AM and materials science, as well as military grade manufacturing

ROLIAC has identified three key benefits that AM may bring to the defence sector:
