MTC Powder Solutions (MTC PS), Surahammar, Sweden, reports that it has added five new employees to its team based at its recently upgraded production site in Surahammar.
The new employees will be spread between the complete value chain, states the company, with positions in sales, design, project management and production.
According to MTC PS, with the interest in Additive Manufacturing introducing a new design mentality across multiple industries, more existing designs are challenged and the interest for Powder Metallurgy (PM) near-net shape (NNS) Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) components is increasing.
“It was a natural step to increase the capacity in our design department with one permanent additional design engineer to align with our customers increased demand for rapid design input in a variety of developments,” commented Fredrik Johansson, Technical Manager at MTC PS.
“As reducing cost becomes more and more evident in most sectors; we see a clear tendency that customers are relying more on our competence as a PM, NNS & HIP manufacturer to suggest changes on existing and new applications. Changes which support increased performance and reduced project costs.”
