Poly-Shape, an AddUp company, has signed a contract with Constellium, Paris, France, to research and develop innovative components made from aluminium powder. The components will be additively manufactured from the Aheadd® powders recently developed by Constellium.
“This is the result of the flexibility of our structures, our reactivity and the high quality of our teams, in particular the research and development sector,” stated Stephane Abed, CEO of Poly-Shape. “From the beginning, our strong culture of R&D places innovation at the centre of the company, to meet the expectations of the demanding high-tech industries in which we operate.”
With experience as a provider of metal Additive Manufacturing services for industries such as aeronautical, motorsports and energy, Poly-Shape has an in-house R&D department and participates in numerous multinational industrial innovation projects. This includes projects to develop emerging processes to validate new materials and new design methods, improve manufacturing parameters for existing machines, and perform testing of future machines.
The new collaboration is reported to be fully integrated into the overall Addup R&D policy, which includes a joint-venture between France’s Michelin and Fives.
