SEAM receives funding of €1.1 million from Enterprise Ireland

The South Eastern Applied Materials (SEAM) Research Centre, in the Institute’s School of Engineering, received funding of €1.1 million to research Metal Laser Sintering Technologies (3D printing), working together with a medical technology multinational, an aerospace SME, and a tool manufacturing company.

Dr Ramesh Raghavendra, Centre Manager of SEAM and Principal Investigator (PI) for this multi-party IPP said, “The new technology we are developing as part of this challenging project offers enormous potential for manufacturing industries in Ireland. We are delighted to have this opportunity to work with three diverse companies and develop complex components that do not lend themselves to conventional manufacturing processes.
