TEMART

Technologies and materials for artistic manufacturing, Cultural Heritage, furniture, architectural and urban design and the design of the future

Sector

Materials and Additive Manufacturing

Project Summary

The project "TEMART - Technologies and materials for artistic manufacturing, Cultural Heritage, furniture, architectural and urban design and the design of the future" aims to improve the products of the above-mentioned sectors (functionality and aesthetics) by applying the different technologies available from the M3NET Regional Innovation Network.

The project aims to enhance the technical-scientific knowledge and the ability to develop new combinations of manufacturing technologies and materials to meet the needs and capacity for innovation in the domains of artistic craftsmanship, restoration of Cultural Heritage, furniture and design. Therefore, innovative technological applications will be studied, developed and validated, to support prototyping and producing components and products of artistic and design value in which the complexities of the form and the material are combined with multifunctionality. The innovation applied to additive manufacturing technologies for an extended range of materials and their combinations in the same artifact will be particularly relevant.

Innovation

The project provides for an integration among cutting-edge technological platforms, both in the field of additive manufacturing, and in the modeling and characterization of surfaces including engineering, as well as in subtractive processing including laser.
These technological platforms are developed to support the needs of the industrial partners ranging from industrial fields of advanced manufacturing, design, up to artistic creation activities.
Furthermore, the decision support system (DSS) enables the industrial partners to assess and reduce the risk associated with the adoption of innovative technological platforms, providing them with an aid to the product and process innovation and a corresponding consistent strategic advantage.

ES Role

EnginSoft designed and implemented a Decision Support System (DSS) to assist companies and research centers in the Veneto region in the development and integration of technologies and processes. Thanks to the DSS, the value of the project goes far beyond the development of relevant case-based solutions. In fact, the different knowledge and experiences acquired, systematized and organized through the DSS, are accessible and usable by all the project partners during the same and by the entire industrial and research system of the Veneto Region.
Finally, EnginSoft supported the design phase of a cold crucible for the vacuum or inert atmosphere microcasting of refractory alloys requiring a high degree of purity. In particular, it supported the component and process design phase by simulating the additive process of metal powder bed laser melting in order to identify the optimal print layout. The orientation of the piece on the printing platform, the support strategy and the dimensional tolerance of the product have been optimally defined by geometric compensation.

Project insight

L-PBF additive manufacturing simulation of a “cold crucible” in copper alloy

by Nicola Gramegna | EnginSoft
Antonio Rossi | AddtoShape

Futurities - Summer 2023

The TEMART project aimed to use simulation software to model the physical phenomena at play during levitative metal melting, and to optimize the technological process of additive manufacturing with pure copper. The main objective of this study is to demonstrate how additive technologies combined with simulation methods can enable continuous progress in the creation of innovative and efficient products. The component being studied is a crucible for the controlled melting of metal.
