a BIG thank you to our customers

14 April, 2020
Amidst this extraordinary time where our thoughts first and foremost are with the people directly or indirectly affected by the Covid-19 virus, we want to thank all our customers for their trust and continued support. We are pleased to announce that last week a leading aerospace company in Southern California ordered three additional MetalFAB1 systems with an option to purchase 5 more systems before the end of 2020. This expansion of their metal powder bed fusion capacity to produce safety critical, highly loaded, high temperature parts replaces large castings.  Additionally, we received the order for a first MetalFAB1 system for a market leading turbocharger manufacturer in Europe. As you might know, the global Additive Industries team normally would celebrate together when we received these orders. This time we observed our social distancing policy and organized a distributed celebration. Cheers to the team and a BIG thank you to our customers for the confidence and continued expansion of the MetalFAB1 installed base for industrial production of high quality metal parts.

ArcelorMittal and Additive Industries take the lead in large spare part printing for the steel industry

In 2017, ArcelorMittal and Additive Industries joined forces to explore the opportunities of 3D metal printing for the steel industry using one of the largest 4-laser 3D metal printing systems available on the market: the MetalFAB1. 3D printing of spare parts is practical as it offers on-demand, on-location production which reduces the need for stocks; it also shortens the production cycle as well as affording flexibility to ArcelorMittal plants.

We continue to be open during the COVID-19 virus but differently...

16 March, 2020
We are all experiencing extraordinary times as the COVID-19 or Corona virus sweeps the world. A time that asks for caution, solidarity, collaboration, flexibility and creativity to both follow the various government’s instructions and simultaneously keep our joint businesses running. From last Tuesday, the vast majority of our Eindhoven team has worked from home, following the Dutch Government Health Institute (RIVM) and our Prime-Minister’s advice. Today it has become clear that the  ‘social distancing’ strategy is expanded as all schools and restaurants will close until April 6th while companies continue to be asked to work from home as much as possible. We are also following the advice from local governments in the regions where we have our Global Process & Application Development Centers like North America, UK and Singapore.
