Tikoa creates the world's first 3D printing observatory


tikoa, a Martian consultancy specialized in additive design and manufacturing, has just created the world's first independent body that will analyze the international market and 3D printing business opportunities as well as the incursion of this new technology in sectors such as automation, furniture, aerospace, aeronautics, health ...

This new center has been baptized as the Tikoa Permanent Observatory of Additive Manufacturing and Neoindustrial Research, OPTFAIN. 25 experts from different countries will work within it. These will be in charge of writing Quarterly reports, freely accessible and totally free, where a qualitative analysis of the application of 3D printing and neo-industrialization processes in various sectors of the economy will be carried out.

Tikoa creates OPTFAIN, an observatory that will study the status and incursion of 3D printing in different market sectors

As he commented Juanjo Pina placeholder image, OPTFAIN coordinator:

In the short term, the main mission of this body is to prevent public and private companies from making costly mistakes, even millionaires, when implementing additive manufacturing. From now on, the 3D printing industry will have a reliable, proven and productive source of information, far from the use of technology as a communicative spectacle.

We will carry out qualitative and quantitative studies periodically, so that we will respond to the information and training needs of hundreds of companies both in Spain and the rest of the world, especially in the United States, Latin America, in particular Mexico, Argentina, Chile and Brazil. .

To get to know Tikoa a little better, just tell you that we are talking about a company that today has five years of experience in additive manufacturing, and its client portfolio includes multinationals such as Repsol or leading hospitals in Spain.
