Our challenges

Diversification to new markets (aeronautics, biomedicine, energy or high performance components), exploring and developing new advanced processing techniques, designing more complex geometries, debinding and sintering optimization, microstructural and thermal characterization are the main challenges we face every day.

PIM technology

Study and optimization of each step of the manufacturing process.
New materials such as biomaterials, TWIP steels, superalloys, porcelains or steatites.

AM technology

R&D laboratory for developing new materials for AM.
Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) for PIM prototyping of metals and ceramics.

R&D Consultant

Pilot plant equipped for the entire PIM&AM manufacturing chain.
R&D solutions in materials advanced processing.
Training centre for undergraduate, graduate and PhD students.
