Pulsate Network launches open call to aid laser-based manufacturing adoption

June 21, 2023

The Pulsate Network, an initiative dedicated to increasing the adoption of laser-based advanced and Additive Manufacturing technology in the European Manufacturing industry, has launched an open call to select up to eighteen companies to join the network.

Laser-based manufacturing such as Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) and laser-wire arc Directed Energy Deposition (DED) Additive Manufacturing is beneficial for sectors like aerospace, automotive, medical devices, industrial machinery, customised electronics and other sectors where mass customisation trends may be difficult to achieve with conventional manufacturing.

European manufacturing companies, and particularly SMEs, may have entry barriers to the technology: investment costs, complexity, system integration, awareness and adoption readiness. PULSATE aims to lower all barriers to boost the adoption of laser-based manufacturing and promote the development of SME-friendly equipment and solutions.

For each selected adopter, the Pulsate programme offers:

  • Financial support of up to €25,000
  • Mentorship from Pulsate Consortium partners in a feasibility assessment, which determines the feasibility of adopting laser-based technology within the adopter’s current manufacturing environment

The programme is open to SMEs or slightly larger companies legally established in the EU Member States or Associated Countries, with high-potential business use cases for laser-based technology in their processes, products, and business models.

The deadline for applicants is June 30, 2023, at 17:00 CEST. Those interested can apply here.
