Materialise has teamed up with Additive Industries, a Dutch company specialized in metal additive manufacturing equipment for industrial applications, to develop the Build Processor for the MetalFAB1 3D printing system.
Materialise is building partnerships with machine manufacturers to bridge the gap between 3D software and a wide range of 3D printers. Their latest partner is Additive Industries, a new player in the Additive Manufacturing market that focusses on a variety of industries: aerospace, automotive, medical, high-tech equipment, and more. Armed with improved reproducibility, productivity, and flexibility, Additive Industries will offer a modular 3D metal printing system to high-end and demanding industrial markets.
This month, Additive Industries’ team is launching its own integrated metal additive manufacturing system, the MetalFAB1. Equipped with automated build plate handling and in-line heat treatment, MetalFAB1 will allow Additive Industries to redefine the metal 3D metal printing industry. The partnership with Materialise to develop a customized version of the Build Processor software supports this goal.
The Additive Industries Build Processor will simplify the 3D printing process for everyone with a MetalFAB1 machine. The powerful and user-friendly software will facilitate the communication of data to the machine and will provide users with a clear overview of their print jobs. Its state-of-the-art slicing algorithm with help users to handle large design files.
