The mission of the National Centre of Competence (NCC) for MATCA is to provide leading-edge technology solutions regardless of the complexity of an assignment – from sudden production problems to long-standing societal challenges. For this purpose, the consortium brings together top experts from industry and academia that make use of their broad experimental and production backgrounds to provide unconventional and innovative solutions. Their solutions are implemented as joint projects or joint services.

We develop: 3D printing, plasma, lasers, surface treatment, simulations, analysis, digitalization.

The Centre primarily develops additive, plasma and laser technologies that have a major impact on industry, economy and security, therefore mastering and developing the technologies are matters of strategic importance.

As part of its long-term R&D projects, the NCC for MATCA covers the whole product life cycle – from smart design and green production, to the repairs and restoration of functional properties and hazardous waste disposal.
