We've been delighted to count you among our exhibitors since the very beginning of 3D PRINT. Can you tell us about the evolution of ERPRO over the last 10 years?

Erpro has grown considerably, from 20 to 100 people. Between organic growth, external growth and the creation of start-ups, we've lived Additive Manufacturing with passion over the last 10 years! But the most exciting is yet to come!

Do you have any key moments or significant achievements to share with us?

It's impossible to mention them all without writing a novel!
One of our proudest achievements dates back to 2017, with the creation of Erpro 3D Factory, a start-up dedicated to the production of polymer parts using additive manufacturing.
A world first, including the manufacture of millions of mascara brushes for Chanel!

How has ERPRO GROUP's ongoing participation in 3D PRINT contributed to the development of your company? Any special memories or encounters you'd like to share with us? 

The 3D Print trade show is a key opportunity for us to present our innovations, meet our customers and also our partners. It's a key moment of the year! 
3D Print is also a great place to meet people, and I remember having meetings with Air France, Safran and SNCF, to name but a few.

Can you tell us about the innovations you'll be showcasing on your stand from June 4 to 6?

This year, we'll be showcasing projects produced on our new Carbon M3 Max machine. We're the first Carbon Partner Network company in Europe to be equipped with this new machine.
We'll also be exhibiting 3D-printed parts made from granules using our EPEIRE 3D machine, as well as the Poolp start-up, which prints recycled materials using a high-capacity robot.
Last but not least, the ChAMpions Zone will be showcasing some excellent applications, such as a customized saddle for motorcycle racer Kenny Forray, and a rugby ball made from Pebax®!
