Dragonfly is constantly engaged in the development of Additive Manufacturing applications for production, sharing standards and procedures with industrial and academic partners.
We are involved on specific research projects, including the development of new solutions able to make intelligent mechanical objects (thanks to the integration of antennas and sensors) and the development of new powders for laser sintering processes. Other aspects of R & D projects relates to the development of new software platforms able to govern most 3D printing plants located in different geographical areas and new "additive" logistics concept.
