About imPURE

imPURE is an Horizon 2020 funded project which aims to create medical supplies through injection moulding systems enabled by Additive Manufacturing (AM). The aim is to transform conventional injection moulding production lines in a fast and agile way, by developing modular moulds with interchangeable inserts produced by AM technology. Medical components will be manufactured, in particular masks, spikes for vaccines, ventilator’s splitters and oximeters. All personal protective equipment and critical medical supplies will be produced in less than 48hr, to be rapidly delivered to patients, vulnerable groups, and health care staff, due to the flexible adaptation of the modular moulds on the industrial production lines.
