Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing delivers limitless design capabilities for highly complex components



Additive manufacturing has long since grown out of its infancy and has taken a firm place in industrial applications. Compared to subtractive processes (machining), our additive, toolless processes stand out by offering almost limitless design freedom, ensuring desired products can be manufactured quickly, and eliminating tool costs.

Differences within additive manufacturing

Not all additive manufacturing is the same – it pays off to take a closer look. In comparison to other manufacturing processes, our production offers many different advantages. Among other things, our 3D-printing processes stand out for a wide range of materials, lower material costs and short production times. Moreover, our additive manufacturing is scalable, making it an attractive choice for small-scale and large-scale series production.

Enjoy the benefits of our additive manufacturing

Benefit from our expertise in sintered and powder technology in additive manufacturing. When you work with us as your certified industry partner, you can rely on consistent compliance with high quality standards.

To ensure we can translate our long-term expertise into new developments and custom solutions even faster for you, we have combined our four core areas of expertise in materials knowledge, design-, material- and process development, modern molding technologies, and a wide spectrum of surface treatments into a kind of toolbox. We then select the best approaches and solutions for you from that toolbox. You enjoy benefits such as customer-focused work and efficient readiness for series production.

We understand your challenges, and we address them with you

Additive manufacturing offers you the greatest possible benefits, including inexpensive production of complex components, cost-efficient manufacturing of small quantities, and optimal dimensional tolerance and surface quality in your components. We offer all of these benefits even with complex components and parallel topology optimization. Other challenges we regularly manage include, for instance, fast availability, applying specialized design and construction rules, and reverse engineering.

Fulfilling your requirements is our mission

As a trusted, long-time development partner to industrial clients, our approach is clear: your challenges are our challenges. Our job is to find solutions to those challenges. We do so, for example, by offering you a selection of different additive manufacturing processes (MBJ, CEM and FDM) and continuously expanding our material selection. In addition, we support you in creating designs, 3D measurement and CAD data preparation, choosing materials and during the entire product development process.
