XENON launches an innovation project with international consortiums 

After a successful kick-off meeting in Eindhoven at the beginning of April 2017, the EU-subsidized project HybMan (Hybrid 3D Manufacturing of Smart Systems) was launched. The goal of the project is to develop hybrid 3D manufacturing methods, which should be used for first-time-right production of intelligent systems for lighting and automotive products. Together with eleven partners in total from Germany and the Netherlands (among others Philips Lighting, TNO, Bosch, and Fraunhofer IFAM), technologies will be developed for additive manufacturing processes, electrical 3D structures, 3D assembly groups, and components.
Xenon’s tasks within the project mainly relate to the development and integration of new manufacturing technologies. This is meant to initiate an examination of techniques for the final assembly of so-called smart parts combined with additive production technologies. In a second part of the project, the development of high-precision, flexible pick-and-place systems with 3D functionality will be observed. Other topics include the research and development of connection technologies as well as the realization of 3D assembly Demonstrators.
