Manufacturers of 3D printer parts teamed up, targeting automobile market.

Czech researchers and developers from companies, schools and universities engaged in the production of industrial parts from 3D printers have joined together to establish the Czech Technology Platform for Additive Production (ČTPAV). They want to be better positioned to reach major NASA customers and world automakers.

More than fifty subjects from the Czech Republic established the platform in the Comtes FHT science and research park in Dobřany. ČTPAV is also supposed to make it easier for Czech companies to gain support for research, development and innovation at national and European level.

ČTPAV is an organizational unit of the Mechatronics Cluster, an interest association based in Dobřany. The cluster brings together dozens of companies from engineering, electronics and computer science and currently focuses on robotic workplaces. "We would like to move technology support towards end-users so that additive manufacturing doesn't just remain in the academic world," said platform chairman Jan Džugan, director of R&D for Comtes FHT, where the 3D printing lab is. According to Džgan, ČTPAV is an opportunity for Czech industry to work with high added value. Moreover, all companies are now on the same starting line.
