Welcoming new members
Now more than ever it has become clear that Additive Manufacturing is a technology capable of withstanding crises. We are going against the negative Corona trend and greet seven new members since August from different branches of the industry to our network.
Meet our newest members:
The SNCF is the public service provider for rail and mobility solutions in France. The SNCF is currently working on additive manufacturing for trains and infrastructure with a focus on maintenance and engineering of rail vehicles and is interested in sharing experiences with European industry representatives, which could be done now and in the future.
r3volutionD would like to expand and deepen its network and knowledge in the AM industry and learn more about new materials and processes in order to drive innovation in the company and develop exciting new products in the equestrian sector. To this end, they bring a slightly different perspective on additive manufacturing.

Equipped with a long history in laser material processing, the Institute for Laser and Systems Engineering researches and develops additive manufacturing processes. In addition to technology transfer to industry, the focus is on the development of bionic 3D printing technologies, the training of skilled personnel and the design and calculation of multifunctional additive components.
SPEE3D was founded because the same problems came up again and again… the production of metal parts was simply difficult. Through new technologies, SPEE3D enables the world’s most cost effective manufacturing process for metal additives. They make metal parts in the fastest possible way and enable the use of metal cold spray technology to produce industrial quality metal parts in minutes, not days or weeks.
The OST is the university of applied sciences of the six cantons of Eastern Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein. With six departments and more than 1,000 current research projects, the OST unites an educational and research tradition of more than 170 years. The OST aims to support the network with experience and to build up further know-how, as well as to accompany the further development of AM.
As a young start-up, Additive Marking wants to further develop an already very disruptive industry. They offer software solutions to integrate individual markings into digital product data. Their vision is to help companies to further automate their additive production lines by using software “”The path to industrial, additive series production is not always straight and often not easy to follow, but our expertise and agility will help us and our partners to follow it””.
3D printing is the cross-section production technology of the future. But there is no printing without metal powder: With 50 years of experience in the development of high-performance aluminum for casting and the first own high-performance aluminum powders, Fehrmann is making a significant contribution to establishing 3D printing and strengthening Germany and Europe as leading regions for metal 3D printing. “
