From start to finish

Solutions from start to finish

In order to develop “solutions from start to finish”, the centre currently offers the following possibilities:

  • “Living Lab” to design, redesign, explore, experiment and redefine new products based on additive manufacturing, in real life scenarios:
  • Design, redesign, engineering and product development until its industrialization with AM / 3DP.
  • Evaluate its feasibility and impact of innovation potential before its production.
  • Application of heat treatments and surface finishes – polishes, coatings… – to obtain the appearance and behaviour of the final product.
  • Testing and certification of the product manufactured using AM / 3DP.

Where to study and design digital manufacturing plants based on AM / 3DP:

  • Optimized design and distribution of industrial plant to improve productivity and efficiency.
End-to-End Solutions
  • Dissemination and awareness. Best practices and success stories
  • Diagnosis, strategic reflection and definition of actions
  • Technology consulting

Business and mentoring

Objectives

In order to evaluate the potential implementation of additive manufacturing technologies, mechanisms are established to initiate, drive, incubate and accelerate new business models based on AM/3DP with different services, depending on whether it is starting business or if, on the contrary, we are in the process of accelerating the adoption of AM solutions of an already existing company.

Services

The services offered to new companies are as follows:

  • Technological evaluation
  • Identification of emergent technologies and adoption acceleration
  • Market research
  • Commercial feasibility studies
  • Identification of market routes
  • Definition and evaluation of business models
  • Financing
  • Identification of partners and collaborators
