Additive Industries announces that it has strengthened its Technology Partnership with the F1 team of Alfa Romeo Racing. On behalf of Alfa Romeo Racing, Sauber Engineering, like the F1 team part of the Sauber Group and using the technology, has ordered its fourth multi-module, four-laser MetalFAB1 Productivity system. With this, Sauber Engineering became the largest customer of Additive Industries with high productivity metal 3D printing capacity in stainless steel, aluminium and titanium.
“Only two years ago we announced the technology partnership at Rapid.Tech and bought two MetalFAB1 systems that would be extended to two 6-module systems in three years,” says Christoph Hansen, head of Technical Development at Sauber Engineering AG. “In the meantime we have accelerated the upgrade, installed a third system and now ordered a fourth one, all in two years’ time. In parallel we are expanding our in-house capabilities with post-process machining and HIPing.”
“Our installed base is growing fast, not only with new customers in our core markets like aerospace and the automotive industry but also through existing customers like Sauber Engineering, who are advancing to become one of the leading companies in industrial 3D printing in Europe, ramping up production,” Daan Kersten, CEO of Additive Industries, adds.
“Although most users of metal additive manufacturing are still applying prototyping systems, we see an increasing number of companies concluding they need dedicated systems for series production,” Kersten says. “Our modular MetalFAB1 family is the only proven system on the market today designed for this use. We are grateful and proud to be technology partner to Sauber Engineering and the F1 team of Alfa Romeo Racing.”
