Additive Industries to install MetalFABG2 at AMRF in Western Sydney

Additive Industries install MetalFABG2 at AMRF in Sydney

Eindhoven, The Netherlands, 18 April 2024 – Additive Industries, a pioneer in industrial metal 3D printers, announces the MetalFABG2 will be installed later this year at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility (AMRF) located in Bradfield City Centre, Western Sydney, Australia.

The AMRF is the first industry-focused advanced manufacturing development centre in Australia and is funded by the NSW Government through the Western Parkland City Authority. This initiative aims to support the NSW manufacturing industry as Western Sydney develops into the nation’s most significant advanced manufacturing ecosystem, creating high-value jobs and fostering innovation. The AMRF's mission is to accelerate the adoption of enabling technologies to improve precision, productivity, reliability and connectivity for local businesses. It offers unparalleled access to advanced technologies, expert guidance, training programs and extensive industry networks.

The MetalFABG2 installation in the First Building at Bradfield City Centre will mark a significant advancement for Australia's sovereign manufacturing capability. This machine will utilize high-temperature nickel alloys and Scalmalloy—a high-strength aluminum alloy—to produce top-quality components tailored for critical industries such as aerospace and defense. The MetalFabG2 is supplied and supported locally by Benson Machines, a company that has been introducing leading edge technologies to Australasia since 1908.

"Located adjacent to the Western Sydney International Airport set to open in 2026, the AMRF is strategically positioned to drive business growth in NSW and unlock global manufacturing opportunities," said Ben Kitcher, AMRF Executive Director. "It will connect manufacturers with state-of-the-art technologies and growth opportunities within Western Sydney—a region renowned for its robust manufacturing sector."

Mark Massey, CEO of Additive Industries, adds: "We are delighted to announce the installation of our MetalFABG2 at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility in Western Sydney. This milestone highlights our commitment to advancing manufacturing capabilities in Australia. By collaborating with the AMRF, we aim to accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing technologies, empowering local industries to enhance productivity, create high-quality components, and stay competitive in the global market. We look forward to a successful partnership that drives innovation and economic growth in Western Sydney and beyond."
