Metal 3D preparation laboratories launch


Project description

Me3Lab is a project led by Nivalan Teollisuuskylä, or Nivala Industrial Park, in which the FMT group is a partner. The objective is to improve the Nivala ELME Studio's - as well as the Industrial Park and the FMT group's - ability to provide services related to manufacturing to the local businesses, and thus help improve the area's industrial competitiveness. In the investment portion, the Nivala Industrial Park acquired a metal 3D printer. The project's development portion centers on the applied research and demonstration of the 3D printer. The research focuses on unique materials the printer renders possible to print, and suitability and cost-effectiveness with the production of the locally made goods, with 3D printing either as the primary or partial methods of production.
