Innovation

Innovation means thinking differently

Mecachrome's R & D organization, in response to customer needs, designs and develops innovative industrial processes. The ability to innovate allows Mecachrome to design solutions with high added value for customers, and to stand out from its competitors. The research and development organization relies on the R & D center and its antennas on production sites. The technological know-how of Mecachrome is one of the essential elements of its competitiveness in France and worldwide. A "Dry To Fly" project is emerging. For years, we have been manufacturing parts by subtractive methods, that is, removing material from a piece. In recent years, we also design and manufacture products using additive 3D printing methods. This project aims to create a third "imbricative" way that combines the advantages of the two previous ones: a material saving and a productivity, while reducing the environmental impact thanks to cryogenic assistance of machining. Thanks to this "imbricative" innovation, we can see a 30% reduction in the production costs of large parts.
