Triditive, Gijón, Spain, will open a 1,700 m2 factory in Siero, Spain, for the production of its AMCell Additive Manufacturing machines. The factory is expected to be the largest AM-focused plant in Spain. 

The announcement comes after the company received an investment from US-based Stanley Ventures, the venture capital team of Stanley Black & Decker, Inc., and SADIM INVERSIONES, an economic promotion company based in Ujo, Spain, enabling plans for the facility to go ahead. 

AMCell is described by Triditive as the first automated ‘3D Factory in a Box’ and 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 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 customers can configure it depending on their needs, adding as many modules as they need to scale up production capacity.

The company has already sold several of its AMCell machines to the Spanish Army and to Stanley Black & Decker for its USA factories. Stanley Ventures delivers access to breakthrough technologies and innovation partnerships across Stanley Black & Decker’s businesses as a strategic investor that accelerates growth and collaboration around the globe through a diverse portfolio of companies.

The investment from Stanley Ventures comes after Triditive presented the AMCell at the Stanley + Techstars Accelerator Demo Day in Hartford, Connecticut, USA, in October 2019. Triditive is said to be the first Spanish company in which Stanley Ventures has invested. 

In a statement on LinkedIn, Mariel Diaz, Triditive’s Founder and CEO, wrote, “We will create the largest AM Factory in Spain! 20,000 ft2 to create technology, employment, and add value to our customers. Thanks to our investors Stanley Ventures, SADIM INVERSIONES and Techstars for the support!”
