WEBINAR: Metal AM for industrial applications, how can you identify good opportunities?

Thursday 27 August 2020, 16:00 to 17:00

Additive Manufacturing can represent the next stage of evolution for industries around the world. This is already the case in segments like Aerospace, Healthcare or Motorsports. But, for many companies which are not confronted to the specific challenges of these segments, what value can the technology bring to their manufacturing processes? And when should they invest in AM?

In this webinar, together with GF Machining Solutions, we will list the key points a company should consider in order to evaluate the benefits of the Laser Powder Bed Fusion process. Our approach will be explained through two real case studies, one related to cutting tools and one related to machinery components. This latest case will be presented by the German company ARNOLD UMFORMTECHNIK GmbH & Co. KG, from the Würth Group, user of metal AM technologies.

Based in Switzerland GF Machining Solutions, belongs to Georg Fischer Group and is present in more than 50 countries around the world. The company turned to metal additive manufacturing a few years ago and has since developed an entire optimized value chain, mastering all stages of manufacturing, from design to printing to post-processing. By combining sophisticated fastening technology with intelligent services, the German company ARNOLD has become one of the world’s leading manufacturers and development partners of high-quality fastening elements and cold-forging press parts.
