Triditive, Gijón, Spain, is partnering with the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and the University of Oviedo MediaLab to drive research and training programmes at its Scaladd AM Centre, an Additive Manufacturing centre housing multiple Triditive AMCell Additive Manufacturing systems. The company has previously stated that it expects the centre to have a production capacity of up to 30,000 parts a month by the close of 2018.

Triditive intends for Scaladd to form the largest AM platform for mass manufacturing, and will provide industrial companies access to its high AM production capacity in metals and polymers, as well as technology and services provided by partners of Triditive. Accor­ding to Mariel Diaz Castro, Triditive CEO, “Companies that do not want to invest in 3D printing capacity or do not have yet the knowledge themselves, can then purchase capacity on one of the AMCell machines at Scaladd.”

Triditive’s new partnership with the named universities aims to increase collaboration, communication and research in new processes and technologies in the AM of metals and polymers, and to facilitate development of the skills and training that will be required in the factory of the future.

Through its strategic partnership with the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the company will provide training in the pro­cessability and characterisation of polymers processed by AM, while the education and training of new professionals will be pursued alongside the MediaLab of Oviedo University, creating links between engineering students and Scaladd.

“We share a common goal of attempting to implement new training methods that may be implemented by universities, but also providing the manufacturing industry with new professionals with skills in AM. This technology will help the manufacturing indus­try to innovate and to be more competitive,” added Castro.
