Giants! Investors in printing technology 3D With the objective of providing special metal parts for the aerospace, automotive and machine tools, the Michelin group and the Fives Group have created a joint venture of "additive manufacturing" based metal powder.

€ 25 million investment

The duo has invested € 25 million. New way to design and manufacture For new perspectives on design and design of certain technical objects, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology announced the marketing of a new 3D printer can create models with the combination of 10 different materials. This new machine of pioneer Fab Lab is offered at € 7,000. The Herbretais are also in the race With the Lycée Jean Monnet, who for years has a 3D printer as well as the St. Gabriel Institute with its Fab Lab, for pedagogy opened in early 2015, named Gab Lab, the basin can argue Herbretais already be in addiction with the technology of 3D printing.
