Hellenic Center for Additive Manufacturing
OHB Hellas is proud to be one of the shareholders of the first Hellenic Center for Additive Manufacturing (HCAM), which will focus on producing end-to-end solutions in various sectors including space and aeronautics, with AM at its core.
The «Hellenic Center for Additive Manufacturing S.A. - HCAM» announced on 24 February, 2022 its establishment and start of operation in Patras, Greece.
HCAM S.A. will fill an existing gap with the creation of a Competence Center in 3D Printing technologies, in Greece and South-Eastern Europe. The recent example of the Covid-19 pandemic showed that immediate solutions can be found using 3D printing for medical support. In Greece, until now there was no dedicated Center to collect and respond to such requests at the scale needed. HCAM S.A. aspires to be a unique one-stop-shop providing end-to-end technological solutions and integrated services to companies, as well as research, training, development and education activities in the field of Additive Manufacturing for various sectors, such as energy, maritime, aerospace, medical, etc.
Nine (9) stakeholders of the Greek R&I ecosystem with a strong presence in Greece and internationally, participate in the shareholder structure of HCAM S.A., namely:
· CBL Patras S.A.
· Foundation for Research and Technology–Hellas (Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH))
· MIRTEC S.A. (EBETAM A.E.)
· Lino S.A.
· MONOLITHOS Catalysts Ltd
· Neweleven Capital Ltd
· OHB HELLAS mon.E.P.E.
· Raymetrics Advanced Lidar Systems
· UBITECH Ltd
In its effort to become a center of excellence in Additive Manufacturing, to place Greece in a leading position in the field, and attract clients at a global scale, HCAM S.A. is seeking to recruit highly motivated professionals offering a competitive salary, an attractive benefits package, great opportunities for professional development, as well as an exciting, fresh and collaborative work environment. More information on new job postings will be available soon.
We want to acknowledge the General Secretariat for Research and Innovation (GSRI) for its support and funding through the Action ‘Competence Centers’, making a strong contribution to the enhancement of competitiveness in the region of Western Greece and in the whole Country.
OHB Hellas' new project that focuses on SENSORS
OHB Hellas proudly presents you a new project that focuses on sensors. More specifically, a cyber-physical system, based on a network of sensors will be established for collecting various data from the physical world and transfer them into a central cyber system. These sensors will monitor many variables of interest during the satellite manufacturing and assembly line, like the temperature/humidity and pressure inside various halls and on specific components and GSE, and many others. At the same time, specific thresholds will be defined by the user, for having full control of all processes. At this moment, OHB Hellas is working on the state-of-art phase and in the next months a more detailed technical research is going to be occurred. But what is the ultimate goal of this project? SENSE would potentially lead to lower manufacturing costs, higher performances, higher reliability, and shorter time to market, actions that enhance the efficiency that OHB Hellas indicates as a company.
