An industrial acceleration Hub for additive manufacturing
Does 3D printing herald a new industrial era ? Saving of raw materials, weight optimization, relocation of production, ability to manufacture increasingly complex parts, exploration of new materials and applications… Additive manufacturing opens up considerable prospects in many sectors of industry.
To explore all the potential, the CEA and HP have created a Hub dedicated to additive manufacturing. Its ambition? Bringing together manufacturers, beyond a traditional value chain, to support the digital transformation of manufacturing processes through advanced 3D printing techniques. Open to industrial and technological partners, this Hub3D is based on a CEA R&D system with research focuses on new materials, innovative designs and their new application.
How does a project work?
We address the entire value chain of polymer FA to improve the state of the art, validate cases of revolutionary uses and accelerate the diffusion of technology. It consists of design and simulation, manufacturing, parts cleaning, surface finishing, material characterization, assembly and recycling. Thanks to their expertise in the 7 fields, the CEA and HP enable the Hub’s partners to be competitive industrially.
