How to promote 3D printing technology in hospitals and favor sustainable alternatives to manufacturing

AIMPLAS successfully completed two training projects, Aladdin and TAB4BUILDING, to promote 3D printing in hospitals and solve environmental challenges in construction

AIMPLAS has participated in these projects pursuing the common goal of introducing plastic materials and their technologies in areas where they can provide added value, such as healthcare or construction, through the training of professionals.

Both projects involve the development of specialized training that has made it possible to cover the training deficits identified in these areas, in the case of hospitals, in the case of additive manufacturing technology, and the use of fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs) in the field. Durable construction. To put these programs into practice, available in the official languages ​​of the project partners, pilot versions have also been developed which have received very positive acceptance and feedback from the professionals involved.

Once both projects are completed, the consortium intends to repeat these courses in the greatest number of ways to improve their expertise, respond to new health challenges, and favor competency in sustainable alternatives for construction. reach the professionals.

In the case of Aladdin, AIMPLAS coordinated the project whose main objective is to introduce additive manufacturing technology (or 3D printing) to hospitals, which provides the health sector with a number of advantages, such as customization or speed of production. One of the main constraints in their integration into this area is the lack of training and for this the project proposes the creation of a specific training program aimed at two profiles: hospital workers and engineering students thus involved in the field of health can.

Five other partners have participated in the project: Spanish Platform for Innovation in Medical and Health Technologies (ITEMAS), Belgian incubator [email protected], AMRC Group’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, Translational Medical Device Lab and Health Innovation Hub University of Galway (Ireland) ) The European Hospital and Healthcare Federation (HOPE) of Ireland (HIHI) and the Belgian Association.

In the case of the TAB4BUILDING project, the main objective is to provide training to architects, technical architects and builders on the use of composite materials or fiber-reinforced polymers in the construction sector, as a lack of training on the use of fiber-reinforced polymers has been detected. The use of these materials which offer many advantages such as their resistance, durability, environmental sustainability or low cost.

Coordinated by Poland’s Silesian University of Technology (SUT), it has the participation of four other partners in addition to AIMPLAS, namely the Valencian Federation of Construction Employers (FEVEC), Austria’s 3S Research Laboratory, the construction sector Slovenian Chamber of Commerce (Gospodarska zabornica Slovenije). ) and the Greek construction employer Panhellenic Association of Engineers Contractors of Public Works (Pedmede). In addition, the European Industry Construction Association (FIEC) collaborates in the project to disseminate the training program among other European associations in the construction sector.
