Leading European PM parts producer joins ColdMetalFusion Alliance

October 13, 2022

The Miba Sinter Division of the Miba Group, Laakirchen, Austria, has announced its decision to join the ColdMetalFusion Alliance due to a shared interest in elevating sinter-based Additive Manufacturing to a more flexible, robust alternative to conventional manufacturing.

As a whole, the Miba Group is reputed as an early adopter of sinter-based Additive Manufacturing, with a dedicated Cold Metal Fusion line installed at its innovation centre in Vorchdorf, Austria. On site, Miba offers customers an entry-point into Cold Metal Fusion technology with joint application development prior to starting production, from quantities ranging from 100s to 100,000s of parts.

Alongside its experience with Additive Manufacturing, the team at Miba also has experience with sintering processes, Powder Metallurgy, industrial and final part application.

ColdMetalFusion is an alliance of industry leaders with decades of experience in the fields of sintering, Additive Manufacturing and classical industrial manufacturing. Together, the Alliance members provide services, equipment, material, software, and knowledge to customers in the metal manufacturing industry. As a ColdMetalFusion ProductionHub, Miba offers full service to its customers from development through to series production.

“Our know-how, global reach and process understanding guarantees a constantly high level of process reliability as we have been one of the backbones of the industry for decades,” stated Dr Alexander Mueller, Head of R&D Sinter Division. “By setting up a Cold Metal Fusion line on site, Miba is implementing its strategy of linking Additive Manufacturing with its core sinter business. Thanks to these efforts, Miba can now showcase its strengths in different segments, including automotive, energy generation, energy transmission and storage, as well as energy use in eMobility in line with our new Strategy – MIBA 100.”

ColdMetalFusion Alliance members will demonstrate the Alliance’s mission of industrialisation at Formnext 2022 at the Alliance‘s booth in hall 11.1, booth D48.
