The IMPULSO project will allow the implementation of additive technology in the aerospace sector
Andalucía Aerospace, as an Innovative Business Association (AEI), leads the IMPULSO Project subsidized by the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism through the Support Program for AEIs.
This project arises from the initiative of three Spanish SMEs: Sevilla Control, Cubicoff Ingeniería Abierta, ARSoft, and two clusters: AEI Cybersecurity and Advanced Technologies, and Andalusia Aerospace Cluster, the latter, which acts as the leader of the consortium.
This combination is a great example of collaborative technological development between entities from different fields and Spanish Regions as it brings together talent from Andalusia, Cantabria and Castilla y León, and strengthens inter-cluster relations.
The IMPULSO project, with a score of 63.29 points, is among the top 15 projects with the best scores compared to the 150 approved projects, presented by 69 national industrial clusters.
The IMPULSO project proposes a novel development in the value chain of metallic components manufactured by 3D printing, with the ultimate goal of establishing an efficient and simple methodology that allows the implementation of additive technology in the manufacturing production chain of two relevant sectors at a national level, such as aerospace and medicine.
To do this, the project has been divided into two phases, the first focused on additive manufacturing within the aerospace sector, since it was considered that results and conclusions could be reached in the short term, and a second phase where these methods and knowledge acquired were applied. to the medical sector.
IMPULSO will allow the development and transfer of technology and applied knowledge in order to implement additive technology in the aerospace and medical sectors.
About the Support Program for AEIs
The Support Program for Innovative Business Groups (AEIs) of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism aims to improve the competitiveness of small and medium-sized companies. To do this, it is financed by European Next Generation funds and is part of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan in component 13 to promote SMEs.
