Triditive, Gijón, Spain, has been named one of Spain’s fifty most innovative startups by Emprendedores magazine for its development of automated metal and polymer Additive Manufacturing technology.

This recognition comes after the company was selected to form part of the cohort of the InvestHorizon accelerator, a programme financed by the European Commission in association with Eureka, an international network of eighteen countries which aims to foster European competitiveness and integration while encouraging R&D cooperation.

Triditive is set to open a 1,700 m2 factory in Siero, Spain, for the production of its AMCell Additive Manufacturing machines. This new factory is the result of a €1 million investment, and is expected to be the largest AM-focused plant in Spain. Once complete, it will also form the company’s global headquarters.

The AMCell: Automated, sinter-based Additive Manufacturing

AMCell is described by Triditive as the first automated ‘3D Factory in a Box’ and is integrated with EVAM, a software platform for remote control and automatic production optimisation, to automate and manage the entire Additive Manufacturing workflow in a single platform.

The machine is powered by what the company refers to as Automated Multimaterial Deposition (AMD) Technology® and uses a process similar Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) to produce green parts with the advantages related to Material Extrusion (MEX)-based and Binder Jetting (BJT) AM processes. The result is said to be a process with the highest throughput of cost-efficient metal parts.

The modular AMCell series is composed of an Additive Manufacturing module, quality control and automatic storage modules, and can be configured depending on customers’ needs, with the option to add as many modules as necessary to scale up production capacity.

As of May 2020, Triditive had sold several of its AMCell machines to the Spanish Army and to Stanley Black & Decker for its USA factories.
