JPB Système, a manufacturer of efficiency-related technology solutions for the aerospace and aeronautic industries, headquartered in Montereau-sur-le-Jard, France, been awarded two contracts from the France 2030 initiative led by the French government. The initiative was launched in 2021 by President Emmanuel Macron and comprises of an overall package of €54 billion for French companies with the aim of supporting innovation and accelerating the transformation of key industry sectors.

One of the grants awarded to JPB Système was for research and development into the potential emission reductions that could result from using metal Binder Jetting (BJT) for aerospace production. The second grant was awarded to JPB Système’s KeyProd, a ‘plug-and-play’ production monitoring solution that combines artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and applications that convert the vibrations of machines into performance indicators.

JPB Système’s Binder Jetting proposal would see the further development of its pilot BJT technology manufacturing line for the creation and pre-industrialisation of aerospace parts for low-carbon aircrafts. This topic reportedly aligned with the programme’s aims due to its potential for positive environmental implications, both within the manufacturing of aerospace parts and the decarbonisation of aircraft resulting from the reduction in raw material consumption, as well as the weight of the components produced.

“Crucially, this investment injection will allow us to confirm the results we have achieved in trials and stabilise the MBJ process for production,” explained Damien Marc, President of JPB Système. “We believe that this technology will enable us to reduce production times for certain parts and speed up delivery times to customers, while the flexibility of [metal Binder Jetting] also means that we can produce 100 completely different parts in the same time that it would take to produce 100 that are identical. We will also launch a study on manufacturing with stainless steel via the [metal Binder Jetting] platform in 2024.”

The amount of funding awarded in the contracts has not been disclosed.
