In December, the pilot courses of the SAMANTHA project will start with the aim of testing the validity of the training course that the partners have developed during these two years of activity. The e-learning pilot courses are part of the Intellectual Output 3 and will continue until next June. Further the partners will support a mentorship activity entrusted to experts in the field of AM in order to create open debates and the acquisition of knowledge through direct testimonies.… Read More »IO4 – SENIOR TRANSFER OF KNOWLEDGE: The role of the Mentors
Right on time for the completion of our SAMANTHA e-learning pilot course, two opportunities to participate in events came our way, where we could promote the project and the pilot course, which starts in November, to a broad public: ERASMUS Days – 14.-16. October 2021 At the ERASMUS Days 2021, the Institute for Innovation in Learning presented itself with numerous projects on digital teaching and learning on the social media platforms Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. One part of the story… Read More »SAMANTHA: Additive manufacturing and more!
As you know, in the SAMANTHA project we are about to publish an innovative training programme that will address the lack of high-tech T-shaped skills for the correct deployment of Additive Manufacturing in the value chains of the Toolmaking and Habitat related products manufacturing industry. Along the same line, another project, CRAFT4.0, also aims to facilitate the access to Additive Manufacturing technology, but in this case, in traditional manufacturing sectors (furniture, interior design, textiles, etc.). The purpose is to improve… Read More »CRAFT4.0: an excellent Additive Manufacturing training complementary to SAMANTHA one
After more than two years, the consortium of SAMANTHA project partners met in Palermo on 8th October for the fifth transnational meeting of the project. This time, the CEIPES hosted them and gave them a warm welcome in the city of Palermo. SAMANTHA aims to develop a new training programme that includes high-tech T-shaped skills for a successful implementation of additive manufacturing (AM) within the curricula of highly qualified staff and is a project funded by the Erasmus+ programme, Key… Read More »SAMANTHA PROJECT PARTNERS MEET IN PALERMO AFTER MORE THAN TWO YEARS OF ONLINE MEETINGS
In the last few weeks, the SAMANTHA project team has been busy entering its learning content for the online training course into the learning platform, which will be open to all interested people. Soon, the first pilot course with learners from the Habitat and Toolmaking sectors will be ready to start! The SAMANTHA course has exciting topics in store. The subject-specific learning modules deal with: Introduction to AM AM Printing Technologies design & modelling software production process & machines for… Read More »Get ready for the SAMANTHA Training Course!
Specifically designed on the VX1000 for investment casting shells and cores In a joint tailoring project, Japanese ceramics expert AGC Ceramics Co., Ltd (AGCC) and voxeljet AG have qualified the high-performance ceramic material Brightorb for 3D printing. In addition to potential applications in the production of structural components and works of art, the material is particularly suitable for 3D printing of highly complex molds and cores for metal casting. Brightorb was developed on a VX1000 with a build volume of… Read More »AGC Ceramics and voxeljet develop new Brightorb ceramics for 3D printing
A USB hub is a device that expands a single Universal Serial Bus (USB) port into several in order to have more ports available to connect devices to a host system. USB hubs are often built into equipment such as computer cases, monitors, keyboards or any other similar device. If such a device has many USB ports it usually stems from one or two internal USB hubs because in other case each port would need its own independent USB circuitry.… Read More »TECOS DESIGNS NEW HOUSING FOR USB HUB’s
BVN Architecture and the University of Technology Sydney have teamed up to design what they say is “the world’s first robotically 3D-printed air-diffusion system”, called “Systems Reef 2”, or SR2. SR2 reinvents air distribution: replacing steel with recycled plastic, square corners with aerodynamic curves, and large vents with fine pores. The building sector is responsible for nearly 40 percent of annual global greenhouse gas emissions and SR2 tackles this problem head on. It offers a 90 percent reduction in embodied carbon when compared to… Read More »BVN and UTS invent robotic 3D-printed air cooling system
Founded in 1878 and located in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, Hochschule Karlsruhe, University of Applied Sciences (HsKA) has a long and rich history rooted in research and engineering education. Through its robust technical and academic training, the University prepares students with critical skills to excel in their careers. HsKA is well-equipped with high-tech design, engineering, and manufacturing equipment, including 3D printing technologies. The Additive Design and Manufacturing Lab, situated in the Faculty of Economics, provides students with access to various polymer 3D… Read More »Karlsruhe University delivers advanced engineering and technical training with METHOD X 3D Printer
In the last weeks and months, the activities of the partnership have focused on the elaboration of the learning content for the SAMANTHA training course. Highly informative texts were created for the AM-oriented modules as well as for the transversal learning content. In the future training course, those text documents can be used as a downloadable resource for supporting the learning process. But developments will not stop at that level. At the moment we are in the middle of enriching… Read More »The Training Course is Taking Shape!
