Funding secured to develop a cutting-edge additive manufacturing process

IVY TECH is proud to be collaborating in the "SonicSMR" project, a 12 month collaborative R&D project funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).


Project SonicSMR will develop a large working envelope laser-based Additive Manufacturing system suitable for the high repeatability and reproducibility manufacturing of Small Modular Reactor parts. Using leading edge supplementary technologies such as #PowerUltrasonic, #OpticalProcessMonitoring, and #AI based #Automated #Defect Recognition, the SonicSMR system will enable the additive manufacture of defect-free complex SMR component parts. A fully operational AM machine will be assembled in Doncaster and will be used to build example SMR demonstrator parts.
