For ArcelorMittal, steel is the fabric of life, as it is at the heart of the modern world from infrastructures to capital and consumer goods. ArcelorMittal has always been at the forefront of innovative technologies that enhance steel properties and enable to imagine new product designs.
Joining MX3D project paves the way to the use of a new technique for steel as Olivier Vassart, R&D director, explains: “What makes this project unique is the use of steel drawn wires as raw material for the 3D printing technology at large scale. Steel versatility combined with 3D printing opens the path to a complete re-thinking of steel components design thus offering total freedom in product geometries and manufacturing process. No doubt that steel will be a source of inspiration for designers.”
