We want to keep up with recent trends and news, therefore we participate on various events.

You can meet us 25th September in Augsburg at the Clusterseminar about 3DPrint.
more about this event

The project will work with modern equipment.

Till the end of September a new EBSD camera will be installed at COMTES FHT a.s. It allows us a new fine and precice look at the metallic materials for 3Dprinting.
