Application Development
Our Application Development team will help you to transform your idea to series production. Integrated industrial Additive
Manufacturing enables product customization and eliminates the need for complex logistic chains. By assessing all aspects of your value chain, product application and manufacturing volume we will jointly specify product requirements for the MetalFAB1 system configuration and help reshape your supply chain.

Material & Process Development
To ensure a seamless introduction of new materials and processes, Additive Industries supports you in selecting materials, developing and validating optimal build process settings and post-processing options. Process predictability and part quality will be assured and unexpected build process behaviour will be prevented. Qualified powder characteristics are fundamental for predictable and repeatable product quality. Additive Industries offers a range of material qualification and validation services, assuring the constant supply of qualified powder. If you want to use your own dedicated material, we’ll help you to qualify this for our MetalFAB1 systems.

Customized Module Development
With customized modules the functionality of MetalFAB1 can be tailored to your process flow in order to increase flexibility and productivity. For example, future modules can offer part separation or surface treatment processes to create a fully integrated industrial grade production system. Closely cooperating with our customers we will define, develop and manufacture customized modules to increase the MetalFAB1 system flexibility and extend your system’s lifetime.
