Metal AM collaboration

3D Systems and Oerlikon AM are entering a collaboration agreement to help further scale metal additive manufacturing (AM). Combining 3D Systems’ Direct Metal Printing platform and Oerlikon AM’s surface engineering capabilities will enable a faster path to market for applications in high-criticality industries such as aerospace. As part of the agreement, Oerlikon AM is acquiring its fourth 3D Systems DMP Factory 500 system, the first Oerlikon AM is adding in the US, as part of the manufacturing workflow at its North Carolina facility. The move will help expand Oerlikon’s end-to-end supply chain solution for high-precision, complex aluminium components for the US market.
