Renew manufacturing processes with 3D printing

Constellium innovates in 3D printing. Its partnership with AddUp, a joint venture of Fives and Michelin and a key player in metal 3D printing, is a first step towards building a French sector, from upstream to production. Their solutions find excellent outlets in defense and transport. For complete control of the production chain, a condition of our industrial sovereignty, investments are still necessary in the production of powders.

This intervention presents the work carried out with the factory team to integrate the robot into the production process, giving the floor to the Dunkirk teams.
