Premium AEROTEC, the aerostructures supplier, holds a leading position within its sector for Metal 3D printing technology. To consolidate this position and to expand the company’s capabilities beyond aviation, Premium AEROTEC is starting a joint project with experienced partners EOS, the leading technology supplier for industrial 3D printing, and Daimler, the renowned automotive manufacturer. Together, they will develop the next generation of additive manufacturing (AM) in their NextGenAM project. Via this cooperation, the companies are laying the foundations for the implementation of this technology in large-scale serial manufacturing.
The objective of the project is to progress the automation of the entire industrial 3D printing process. For this, the NextGenAM project team will check the entire additive manufacturing process, from the delivery of metal powder to the processing stages after the build process itself.
The three partners will work together in order to achieve a major progress in terms of efficiency and processing times. The project is scheduled to begin in May 2017.
