Sauber Technologies and Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN extend partnership with Additive Industries to push boundaries in metal additive manufacturing

29 June, 2022

Sauber Technologies and Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN have extended their technology partnership with Additive Industries for another three years. Sauber Technologies has been using Additive Industries’ MetalFAB platform for additive manufacturing since 2017, with a current count of four systems in-house. This summer, both parties celebrate the fifth anniversary of their long-term strategic metal additive manufacturing partnership. With the focus of both parties on productivity, part reproducibility and industrial series production, they are eager to keep pushing boundaries in metal AM to manufacture light weight crucial components for the automotive, industrial & tooling industries. From the start of the collaboration, Additive Industries has enabled the professionals of Sauber Technologies to accelerate in the metal additive manufacturing domain. The investment in the MetalFAB systems – with its unique open parameters - allowed Sauber to reduce cycle times in the manufacturing of innovative parts for their own wind tunnel models, F1 race cars as well as third-party business.

Additive Industries wins TCT Transport Application Award at prestigious 3D printing and additive manufacturing event TCT 3Sixty

09 June, 2022

Additive Industries has been awarded the TCT Transport Application Award at the annual TCT 3Sixty, UK's most influential 3D printing and additive manufacturing event. Additive Industries received the award for its collaboration with Volkswagen on a tooling nozzle for the Volkswagen Tiguan. Volkswagen deployed Additive Industries’ MetalFAB metal 3D printing system to achieve a 650% cost reduction in the manufacture of a tooling nozzle used for the automated deposition of a rope in the chassis flange of the VW Tiguan. This part, which helps prevent flange corrosion, was manufactured in a single piece in 316L stainless steel. Previously, the component was made up of two pieces and produced in a more expensive Ti-alloy. This winning case can be found here.
