Additive Manufacturing Village

In the Additive Manufacturing village, near the Arcam and Beam machines, the Saint Exupéry, Jules Verne, M2P, and SystemX IRTs showed the first results from a shared initiative they undertook two years ago – FIT Additive Manufacturing. The results, associated with 18 projects, were presented in relation to EBM*, LMD** and SLM*** technologies to highlight manufacturing optimisation, powder production and recycling, and material analysis (3D tomography). Several parts were on display, including a spatial mirror and a Safran bracket, a school study on lattice projects with an ArianeGroup joint, Airbus D&S satellite support, SLM (Jules Verne IRT) step, and a Five thermal exchanger.
