Additive Manufacturing Solutions Ltd. (AMS) has officially expanded its in-house capabilities with the acquisition of Nikon SLM Solutions' SLM 280 2.0 system. This move bolsters AMS' capacity for producing advanced materials and novel alloys and enhances its capability as a service provider with toolpath control capabilities, thanks to its partnership with Dyndrite software.

AMS is developing and creating metal powders for AM from recycled parts. The circular economy approach to material development alongside the SLM 280 2.0 system provides a step change in AM sustainability.

Nikon SLM Solutions’ UK partner Kingsbury has supplied and installed the SLM 280 2.0, bolstering their commitment to delivering and supporting metal additive adoption in the United Kingdom. The new equipment and the AMS team will be supported by Additure, a division of the Kingsbury group dedicated to accelerating the adoption of metal AM technologies.

“With Additure we have the perfect mechanism to ably assist you on your metal AM journey,” says Richard Kingsbury, managing director, Additure. “Combining that with the pedigree of machine tools service and support from Kingsbury means that we can provide end-to-end capability to our customers.“

“With the integration of the SLM®280 2.0 into our operations, we are poised to revolutionize the material and process capabilities within the additive manufacturing (AM) industry,” says Robert Higham, CEO of AMS, who celebrates the new acquisition. “This advancement is coupled with our pioneering Additive Manufacturing Academy, set to deliver hands-on experience and groundbreaking training in additive manufacturing.”

MS, a frontrunner in sustainable manufacturing solutions, now harnesses the SLM 280 2.0 to drive rapid material development capabilities. This addition is expected to impact their production efficiency, allowing for greater presence in the UK motorsport, defense, aerospace and space markets.

“AMS' acquisition of the SLM 280 2.0 machine marks a significant milestone in the additive manufacturing landscape. Their foresight to integrate Dyndrite’s cutting-edge toolpath technology exemplifies a forward-thinking approach to innovation and precision in production,” comments Nikon SLM Solutions CCO, Charlie Grace. “At Nikon SLM Solutions, we take pride in empowering our partners like AMS, who are not only advancing their capabilities but also shaping the future of sustainable and efficient manufacturing. This collaboration reflects our shared commitment to excellence and our continuous endeavor to push the boundaries of what’s possible in additive manufacturing.”
