Additive manufacturing invites itself to synchrotron
EPMA Fellowship Award
Didier Bouvard, professor at G-INP and searcher in SIMaP lab, received the European Powder Metallurgy Association - EPMA Fellowship Award 2021 during the opening session of the Euro PM2021 conference. The EPMA Fellowship Award recognises individuals in the scientific and/or academic community for significant contributions to the development of the PM industry.
ROSI Solar, a start-up originated from the SIMaP laboratory and which offers solutions for recycling and upgrading raw materials from the photovoltaic industry, has just set up its first solar panel recycling plant in Isère, on the Matheysin plateau (see press article).
Resulting from the valorisation of research work carried out in the SIMaP laboratory on amorphous metals, the start-up Vulkam produces metals with incomparable properties. Thanks to specifically designed processes, the manufacture of miniature parts with unrivalled mechanical and functional characteristics can be envisaged.
