Following the launch of their Beta test programme in December last year, Additive Industries has sold their first metal 3D printer to Airbus subsidiary APWorks shortly after. Now, with two more companies on board, Additive Industries closes its Beta programme.
The company’s other customers, that were announced ta the fourth edition of their Additive World Conference in Eindhoven, include the Dutch Kaak Group and United Grinding Group.
The Kaa Group is a food tech company focused on automated baker systems, that will use metal 3D printing to produce parts for their dough handling equipment. The United Grinding Group will join the Beta programme through a joint venture with Switzerland-based company Inspire. CEO Stephan Nell explains: “We see metal additive manufacturing as a promising addition to our subtractive business. We have great expectations of our collaboration with Additive Industries.”
Additive Industries CEO Daan Kersten said that they expect the first series machines to leave their factory before the end of this year.
