The Principality of Asturias has particular capabilities in additive manufacturing through the IDONIAL Technological Centre (specialised in industrial production technologies) and the University of Oviedo, as well as facilities and staff from private companies and in which numerous parts, components or personalised prostheses are already being produced for sectors such as metalworking, aeronautics or biosanitary. This technological area also has professionals who are specialised in this field, with numerous testing centres and technological demonstration pilot plants and lines for printed electronics and bioplastics, the printing of construction components and the additive manufacturing of metal products.
