Finnish Additive Manufacturing Ecosystem (FAME) is a professionally facilitated, business-driven and co-creative Additive Manufacturing ecosystem, established in 2020.
FAME increases the role of additive manufacturing and brings together Finnish players in the field. FAME Ecosystem partners cover the entire value chain of additive manufacturing and has the Finnish top-know-how companies involved.
FAME is a full-scale and easy-to-access ecosystem, that forms a critical mass on AM knowledge and expertise and a hub for foreign investment in Finland, and a full-service AM offering of Finnish know-how that can be exported.
The focus of FAME is to increase the use of Additive Manufacturing in the Finnish manufacturing industry. FAME provides an easy way to get started and advance with utilization of additive manufacturing for companies. The key is knowledge sharing from experts to experts, and therefore FAME partner companies are able to develop adaption of AM faster than other companies.
FAME increases private investment in co-creation, co-utilisation of shared facilities and infrastructures, as well as reduction/replacement of material waste. The ecosystem has started an open experimental center of AM in Vaasa at the Wärtsilä Sustainable Technology Hub.
FAME advances the education of additive manufacturing and raises Finland to the world’s leading countries in additive manufacturing utilization, sales and know-how.
