CEFAM: strategic program for the Training of Excellence in Metallic Materials Additive Manufacturing
CEFAM's main challenge is to enhance collaboration between the four technology centers CATEC, CEIT, LORTEK and AIDIMME, and take advantage of the different core strenghts to increase the impact of the knowledge acquired in additive manufacturing.

To this end, a network of excellence in Additive Manufacturing has been created, supported by two complementary pillars: an internationally recognized know-how and a market orientation that allows it to act as a driving force in the Spanish industrial fabric.

Through the achievement of this project, the FADA-CATEC, CEIT, LORTEK and AIDIMME technology centers have been distinguished as "Cervera Network of Excellence" in relation to Additive Manufacturing, and received a grant for the Strategic Program for Training Excellence in Additive Manufacturing of Metallic Materials (CEFAM) ”(File: CER-20191005) through the Center for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI) under the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.

CATEC works on the parameterization of some alloys for their commissioning in the aerospace sector reaching the flight component; the development of new aerospace applications, collaborating with the members of the network for their final evaluation; it also participates actively in the definition of specifications of materials in powder form for PBLF; the development of inspection technology, analyzing the effect of defects to achieve objective design parameters and determine safety margins; destructive inspection of new alloys and component; in the post-processing stages and in the training programs and dissemination of results.
