Poral SAS, Le Pont-de-Claix, France, a manufacturer of Powder Metallurgy structural parts, sintered porous metal filters and self-lubricating bearings, has added metal Additive Manufacturing to its list of capabilities. Establishing a fourth brand under the name Additive Metal®, the new division will complement the company’s existing divisions, Oloron Frittage (PM parts), Poral Filtration, and Metafram Metagliss (bearings and friction plates).

The announcement follows on from several years of research and development in collaboration with France’s CETIM (Technical Centre for Mechanical Industry) and CEA (Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission). Poral also announced that it has signed a partnership with Desktop Metal, Burlington, Massachusetts, USA, to develop metal Binder Jetting (BJT) capabilities.

Poral’s customers include the automotive, aerospace, nuclear, chemical, mechanical industry, sport and luxury markets. The company has two production facilities, one in Voie des Collines, Pont-de-Claix and another in ZI de Légugnon, Oloron-Sainte-Marie, and has been awarded the ‘La French Fab’ label, a government designation which aims to bring together the country’s industrial ecosystem in order to revive and transform the face of French manufacturing.
