On the first day of RAPID 2016, the largest US trade fair and conference on additive manufacturing and 3D printing, Additive Industries has announced the fifth MetalFAB1 system is sold to GKN Powder Metallurgy, the world’s leading manufacturer of precision automotive components. Although Additive Industries had already declared ‘sold out’ for their MetalFAB1 Beta systems, they decided to re-open the Beta programme and build a fifth machine.
At RAPID 2016, North America’s largest professional 3D printing tradeshow, Additive Industries presents it first truly industrial 3D metal printing system, MetalFAB1. This is the first time across the Atlantic and the official launch for the US market. Additive Industries will start to build a North American sales and service organisation to support its MetalFAB1 users.
