NextFactory project started on 1st September 2013

The FP7 project NextFactory started on 1st September 2013. The project is coordinated by Fraunhofer IPA with strong support by ARTTIC.

The mission of the NextFactory project is to develop and validate a new type of all-in-one manufacturing technology combining for the first time, in a single piece of equipment, 3D free-form printing and ultra-precision 3D assembly. This highly flexible and scalable facility will empower microsystem manufacturers - and in particular SMEs - to effectively produce highly miniaturised Smart Products-in-Package (SPiPs) both in small series and high-throughput production of large parallel batches.

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. NextFactory will run for 4 years.
