Design freedom

Metallic 3D printing allows more freedom in component design. Many more complex geometries are possible than with conventional methods such as milling or welding.


Scalmalloy® and more

Combining the benefits of modern manufacturing methods with new materials greatly expands the possibilities for the development of components.

Serial Production.

Unbeatable advantages

Metallic 3D printing, also called additive manufacturing, has made the leap from rapid prototyping to a recognized production method. It offers several advantages which can now be used for industrial production at the highest level:

  • Low lead time
  • More complex geometries than possible with conventional means (milling, welding)
  • Low materials consumption
  • Significant weight savings for components
  • Functional integration of features
