Collaborative Research Centre
for smart advanced manufacturing of lightweight structures
We bring innovative organisations together with technology suppliers and TU Delft researchers
SAM|XL stands for Smart Advanced Manufacturing XL. We are a collaborative research centre at TU Delft Campus.
We develop, demonstrate and de-risk smart manufacturing solutions.
We focus on automated production processes of large-size, lightweight structures for the high-tech aerospace sector.
Automation is key to keep up in the competitive industry.
Off-the-shelf automation technology tends to fall short with regards to technical or economic aspects. Setting up an automated production line currently still requires a substantial amount of time, money and effort.
Where should you start? Can you do this alone? What equipment do you need? How do you level up your knowledge? How important is the role of software development?
SAM|XL can help you take the first steps towards automated production.
Using your long-term ambitions as starting point, our infrastructure, knowledge and consulting provides the guidance needed to get out of the starting blocks and accelerate your innovation and skills transfer.
