The main objective of the project is to make the different technological centres, universities, big companies and PMEs on both sides of the border collaborate together, with the aim of producing high value-added parts trough additive manufacturing processes.
These technologies are still at an early stage of development, and require multidisciplinary know-how in materials, simulation, manufacturing processes, characterization, etc.
At the moment, the knowledge of each area of specialization is different between the different companies of the consortium. Joint efforts are needed to meet this new challenge, so that the cross-border area POCTEFA has a competitive offer of additive manufacturing technologies.
The project will approach various aspects related to these processes. Results such as optimized parts design, process improvement, parts validation will be obtained at the end of the project.
This approach represents a radical change in working methods and manufacturing technologies. It offers advantages such as the drastic reduction of used raw material, design flexibility and reduced delivery time.
For the TRANSFRON3D project, all the partners will be able to rely on different technologies, having access to important machinery facilities. This machinery diversity is made up of various technologies:
This project will create a cooperation network between the of cross-border partners in order to benefit from the knowledge and experience available in the regions that belongs to the POCTEFA territory.
TRANSFRON3D will meet many challenges of the POCTEFA space thanks to the collaboration between technological centres, universities and companies for the development of the additive manufacture of metallic parts.
TRANSFRON3D is a project financed over a period of 36 months.
The Kick-off Meeting took place on 01 July 2016 at Tecnalia in San Sebastian (Spain). The project is scheduled to end on June 31, 2019.
Different Work Packages will be dealt within this project:
Different means of communication will be used to promote this project:

POCTEFA 2014-2020 is the acronym for the Interreg V-A Spain-France-Andorra Program. It is a European program of cross-border cooperation created to promote the sustainable development of the border territories of the three countries.
POCTEFA 2014-2020 is the fifth generation of financial support with the aim of strengthen the economic and social integration of this border area. POCTEFA co-finances cross-border cooperation projects designed and managed by the entities located on both sides of the Pyrenees and the coastal zones participating in the Program. At the same time, it preserves the intelligent planning for the sustainable and inclusive growth of the territory.
El FEDERis intended to support projects for sustaining the economic development of the regions. In 2014-2020, it must contribute to strengthen the competitiveness and innovation. This will be made by creating and safeguarding sustainable jobs and ensuring sustainable development, in line with the community strategic guidelines for this new programme.
It contributes to the financing of productive investment, infrastructure investment, assistance and business services, in particular to PMEs, in the creation and development of financing instruments, and environmental or energy projects.
