After a successful implementation of its systems in Europe at companies like Airbus, Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 team and GKN and setting up a similar foothold in the US, Additive Industries is now expanding into the UK. To work closely on mature applications in aerospace, high performance motorsports, medical implants and high-tech equipment, Additive Industries will expand its Process & Application Development network with a Centre in the UK.
The new centre will be run by Dr. Mark Beard, who has over 14 years of experience in the additive manufacturing (AM) industry and was previously the Technical Director at 3TRPD, a leading UK provider of metal Additive Manufacturing and 3D printing. The MetalFAB1 is the only metal 3D printing system on the market that integrates multi-laser powder bed fusion with post processing stages to enable consistent quality and unattended operation.
The UK facility will house MetalFAB1 demonstration systems and support process and application development for the UK and Ireland. A team of talented 3D printing professionals will be hired to provide support for the full manufacturing process chain and enable companies to realise series production for AM components.
