Italian valve manufacturer Valland announced to have successfully completed the WALCHY project, undertaken as part of the second open call by DIH World. This iniziative is designed to support digitization experiments involving Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH) and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in the manufacturing sector. The project was carried out with the collaboration of Polytronics, a digital innovation hub supported by the Polymeris cluster.
The aim pursued by WALCHY is of utmost significance: to revolutionize the supply chain in the hydrogen industry towards a more efficient logistical process in terms of cost and time, while also ensuring sustainability. This is achieved through innovation in valve components using Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) technology.
Valland extended its gratitude to Joachim Antonissen and Guaranteed B.V. for their invaluable support in realizing the printed components.
