Materialise NV a leading provider of Additive Manufacturing software and of sophisticated 3D Printing solutions in the medical and industrial markets, has recently entered into a development partnership with Additive Industries, a Dutch company specialized in metal Additive Manufacturing equipment for industrial applications.
Materialise is building partnerships with machine manufacturers to bridge the gap between 3D software and a wide range of 3D printers. Their latest partner is Additive Industries, a new player in the Additive Manufacturing market that focusses on a variety of industries: aerospace, automotive, medical, high-tech equipment, and more. Armed with improved reproducibility, productivity, and flexibility, Additive Industries will offer a modular 3D metal printing system to high-end and demanding industrial markets.
This month, Additive Industries’ team is launching its own integrated metal additive manufacturing system, the MetalFAB1. Equipped with automated build plate handling and in-line heat treatment, MetalFAB1 will allow Additive Industries to redefine the metal 3D metal printing industry. The partnership with Materialise to develop a customized version of the Build Processor software supports this goal.
The Additive Industries Build Processor will simplify the 3D printing process for everyone with a MetalFAB1 machine. The powerful and user-friendly software will facilitate the communication of data to the machine and will provide users with a clear overview of their print jobs. Its state-of-the-art slicing algorithm with help users to handle large design files.
Materialise and Additive Industries look forward to the release of the MetalFAB1 system and the associated Materialise software.
