The manufacture of high-volume plastic parts is commonly achieved through the process known as plastic injection moulding. This is because, in the case of simple structures of considerable size, the costs and production times are low since the costs associated with the amount of material do not have a significant impact compared to 3D printing. However, when the structural complexity of a part increases and its size decreases, plastic injection moulding is not the most suitable method for manufacture. For the production of parts with plastic injection, moulds are required; which is why, when dealing with complex parts (such as a impeller or turbine), manufacture is practically impossible unless they are produced in pieces and then assembled, given the demoulding requirements.
With an optimized design, additive manufacturing is significantly more cost-effective than plastic injection moulding.

It is the only incubator focused on additive manufacturing (3DP/AM) that is part of the network of European high-tech incubators promoted by the European Union. The new facilities are part of the strategic Project DFactory that is being developed in the Zona Franca Industrial Estate. The construction of a new building of 17,000 m2 will start in the following months and this will be the first phase of an Economy 4.0. hub in Barcelona.
