VBN Components moves to larger premises to meet growing demand
August 24, 2021
VBN Components, Uppsala, Sweden, has announced a move to new premises, reported to be three times larger than its previous facility. The expansion will enable the company to increase production capacity, following growing demand for its products from new and existing customers.
Johan Bäckström, CEO, stated, “Our new premises are adapted to our continued expansion and enable a good production flow. With this, we also get increased quality and shorter delivery times.”
VBN Components develops metal alloys with extreme wear and heat resistance, including alloys such as Vibenite® 290, said to be the world’s hardest, commercially available steel, and Vibenite® 480, reportedly the world’s only additively manufactured cemented carbide.
The company sells metal tools and components in near-net-shape according to customer drawings, as well as license solutions. The products are manufactured directly from powder through Additive Manufacturing.
