presentation by Luis Ignacio Suárez-Ríos, Idonial, at Virtual Additive Manufacturing for Defense Conference [live, online, 16:30-18:00 CET). Luis will speak on November 3, during the session Additive Manufacturing for and in the battle field: science fiction or reality? The Applications! For the complete program click here.

The presentation focuses in new techniques or ways to implement additive manufacturing (or 3D printing) in order to fulfill highly demanding and challenging applications. Focus will be on 3D printing at large scale and FOR large scale, and 3D printing for medical applications and bioprinting.


Luis Ignacio Suárez-Ríos is Industrial Engineer specialized in Advanced Manufacturing Process technologies. He has collaborated with the research group of the University focused on manufacturing Engineering Processes and joined the team of PRODINTEC back in 2011. Since then, he worked as researcher for 3D printing of metal and plastic, and has been lead researcher of micro injection molding technology and technical ceramics/bio ceramics 3D printing work line. He has been technical responsible and project manager in more than 20 projects at regional/national/European level, both in the frame of R&D collaborative calls (ERA-NET, H2020) or direct contracts with customer companies. In addition, he has contributed to more than 10 international congresses and technical speaks in the topic of 3D printing and appears as author of several scientific publications related to additive manufacturing.

Private IDONIAL was established in 2019 as a result of the merger of the ITMA and PRODINTEC centers with 28 and 14 years of experience respectively, which have opted to join efforts to address new challenges and provide our customers with tailor-made solutions related to the development of materials, advanced manufacturing and the digital industry through technological development and innovation.

For this purpose, the centre has a wide technological offer oriented to the needs of companies applicable to a wide range of industrial sectors and with an expert and multidisciplinary team with an interest in development and innovation
