Research and development



Located in the Ardennes region of France, historical foundry country, 3D METAL INDUSTRY was created in May 2019. A unique approach in France, 6 foundries including LA FONTE ARDENNAISE, and a design office supported by:

• The State • Private investors • and the UIMM came together to purchase a 3D ExOne SMAX printer.

A machine of which the cutting edge technology makes it possible to reduce the cost and time needed to produce foundry moulds.

These moulds can have much more complex technical specifications than those from traditional techniques.

An essential vector in the development of future foundries in a region that is traditionally an anchor for this sector of activity.
