Citec has decided to become one of the founding members of the FAME ecosystem with the target to put Finland at the top of the world in 3D printing. DIMECC Ltd., the leading innovation platform in the Finnish manufacturing industry, has now launched an industrial ecosystem that will increase 3D printing and bring together Finnish players in the field. The FAME ecosystem (Finnish Additive Manufacturing Ecosystem) will create an open 3D printing experimental centre in Vaasa at the Smart Technology Hub, modular 3D printing training in Lappeenranta from the engineering level to the doctoral level, and raise Finland to the world’s leading countries in 3D printing utilization, sales and know-how. FAME involves more than 20 companies as founding members. FAME is open for companies of all types and sizes to join, and brings together leading equipment manufacturers, material suppliers, design and printing experts, and machine builders who turn their manufacturing technology towards 3D printing.

Terhi Päivike, Director, Plant Equipment, Engineering Delivery Centre, will represent Citec in FAME.

“We decided to participate in FAME in order to be able to provide highly skilled services and expertise to our customers. We will widen the co-operation network, increase the additive manufacturing knowledge and competence within our organisation”, says Terhi. “We want to further strengthen our product engineering offering. Citec’s vision for 2023 is to have additive manufacturing as part of our daily operations, and that we have strong and agile additive manufacturing design teams that can bring value engineering to our customers with innovative solutions”, Terhi ends.
