The NextFactory consortium will bring together a multidisciplinary group of leading edge SMEs and academic partners respectively contributing expertise in the new manufacturing technologies and the different application fields.
The multidisciplinary and deeply integrated R&D activities in NextFactory are covered by 9 workpackages. Please click on the individual partner to find out more
Patrick Lambelet from Heliotis will be developing systems for high accuracy 3D acquisition. It‘s key component is the `smart pixel`-technology which allows to gain up to two orders of magnitude in speed for interferometric measurements. This allows to bring high accuracy methods such as white light interferometry from the laboratory to the production flow.
Heliotis offers a special technology that dramatically improves the speed of highly accurate interferometric 3D measurement methods. This feature makes it possible to bring these environment-sensitive systems from the laboratory to the rougher production level. They expext the NextFactory project to offer a strategic platform to embed High-accuracy 3Dmeasurement with highly accurate 3D-printing and 3D-postioning.
