NanoE €2 million facility expansion for ceramic and metal AM

November 18, 2021

NanoE SAS, Ballainvilliers, France, will invest €2 million in a new facility dedicated to metal and ceramic Additive Manufacturing, doubling its production volume. This 1000 m2 facility will feature offices, demonstration centre and a manufacturing facility. The investment will be supported by the France Relance recovery plan, which provides up to 50% of the cost.

“This government support plan allows us to make the investment in one year instead of the two or three we expected,” stated Guillaume de Calan, CEO.

For three years, the company has been promoting its Zetamix technology – which includes AM machines, furnaces and filaments – to democratise ceramic and metal AM. Through this brand, the company markets ceramic and metal filaments compatible with any machines utilising Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), a Material Extrusion (MEX) process.

The latest additions to the Zetamix line include thermal zirconia, a technical ceramic filament that does not require chemical debinding, and silicon carbide. Both of these are expected to be available for sale in 2022.

To better achieve its goal of democratisation, NanoE relies on a wide reseller network. In 2021, resellers numbers have increased from five to twenty-five, with over fifty Zetamix systems installed. Zetamix expects to hire twenty-five further resellers to expand its reach and double the number of installed users.

“Our partners around the globe are a key aspect of Zetamix strategy; thanks to their fine knowledge of their respective market and the training we provide, they are able to promote the technology in their countries,” de Calan concluded.

NanoE is now exibiting at Formnext, Hall 12 B41.
