By Politecnico di Milano

The Italian  machine tool, robots, automation systems and ancillary products manufacturers’ association, UCIMU awards a number of theses in undergraduate and graduate levels every year in the field of manufacturing. This year, Daniele Innocenti has won the prestigious award on the category or “Machine tools and systems production:  conception, integration, technology and application in industrial production”. The thesis entitled “Study of the laser  based additive manufacturing process by robot” demonstrated a complete study on the capability of realizing metallic objects using laser metal deposition method. Mr. Innocenti was supervised by Prof. Barbara Previtali and worked within SITEC – Laboratory for Laser Applications of Politecnico di Milano. The thesis work was developed in collaboration with CNR-ITIA, Institute of Industrial Technologies and Automation branch of the Italian National Research Council.
