Additive Industries to supply GKN Powder Metallurgy with MetalFAB1 beta system


On the first day of RAPID 2016, Orlando, Florida, the largest US trade fair and conference on Additive Manufacturing and 3D printing, Additive Industries announced that its fifth MetalFAB1 system has been sold to GKN Powder Metallurgy.

Although Additive Industries, located in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, previously declared that its MetalFAB1 beta system was sold out, the company decided to re-open the beta programme and build a fifth machine. “For Additive Industries the input from an automotive leader like GKN is a beautiful addition to the other beta customers from the aerospace and high tech equipment markets. Their unconditional focus on predictability and total cost is an important driver for further integration and optimisation,” stated Additive Industries Co-founder and CEO, Daan Kersten.

Additive Industries has the ambition to qualify its first truly industrial 3D metal printing system, MetalFAB1, for automotive series production. It was stated that jointly, they will apply the MetalFAB1 system for industrialised automotive serial production compliant with ISO/TS 16949 standards at significantly higher productivity than ever before.   |
