Development projects

Development Project

Resource Efficient Production of Metal Project

The European REProMag project (2015-2017) focused on research regarding the additive manufacturing of complex geometries with the same performance profile as metal injection molded (MIM) parts. The project helped to lay the foundation for the Incus lithographic printing process for manufacturing highly precise metal parts. The project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program (grant agreement 636881).

Development Project

PRIMUS (PRInting with Metals Using Stereolithography)

The Vienna Business Agency Innovation Funding Program was started in 2019 to support the development of innovative technological solutions within the city of Vienna. Incus was a part of the PRIMUS project and developed a new 3D-printing concept with a high-performance exposure system, allowing a new class of feedstock with finer metal powders. The use of finer powders is relevant for special performance materials, including refractory applications (Tungsten) or Cutting Tools (Tungsten carbide-cobalt (WC-Co).)

Development Project

Joint lunar project

This 18-month project will test 3D printing – specifically the Lithography-based Metal Manufacturing (LMM) process – in a micro-gravity environment to test whether it would be possible to print materials in a lunar base using scrap metal or existing surface materials. Ultimately, this research could help to pave the way for future lunar settlements as it could address issues related to supply chains and acquiring supplies from Earth.
