The launching meeting of the new European project ADDISPACE was held at ESTIA (Ecole Supérieure des Technologies Industrielles Avancées) in Bidart (France) last November. CATEC participate in this project, that is part of the Interrog Sudoe competition.

This project aims to promote additive manufacturing technology as a change in the manufacturing paradigm in the aerospace sector and as an opportunity for SMEs in the sector. It also seeks to demonstrate the technological and economic viability and the high levels of quality of the metal components manufactured through this new technology, increasingly used in different sectors- It aslo aims to raise awareness of the opportunities of specialization and employability that this area offers in the working market.

To achieve this, the initiative will create a platform for the diffusion and transfer of technologies between research centers and industry for companies to incorporate 3D metal printing technologies, such as selective laser fusion and laser metal deposition, two most important additive manufacturing technologies for the manufacture of metal components.

The project involves different companies and institutions from Spain, France and Portugal (including the Spanish Clúster HÉLICE, Hegan, and IK4-Lortek, and others like Airbus), and has a duration of 3 years. I has a budget of 1.7 million euros, of which 1.3 million will be contributed by the ERDF Funds.
