Rosswag wins NEO Innovation Award for new metal AM materials

Rosswag Engineering, a leading supplier of special metal powders, high-quality components and qualification services in the field of metal AM, is awarded for its successful and promising company transformation with an innovative business model.

Rosswag was awarded with the NEO Innovation Award endowed with € 20,000 by TechnologieRegion Karlsruhe GmbH for the innovative and world’s fastest qualification process for new metal AM materials. With that approach, Rosswag transformed the knowledge from the 110 years old forging business Edelstahl Rosswag into an unique framework for the rapid development and testing of new materials for functional optimized metal AM parts. Since 2014, more than 40 materials have been atomized into metal powder and qualified for the LPBF process via the holistic and in-house process chain at Rosswag Engineering.

“When we started metal 3D printing in 2014, only a handful of materials were qualified for the process. Our approach is to provide an efficient and cost-effective way to lay the groundwork for an accelerated industrialization of metal additive manufacturing by enabling more applications across all industries.” states Gregor Graf, Head of Engineering at Rosswag.

The Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion is one of Europe’s leading business and innovation regions. The annual NEO Innovation Award is set up to honor disruptive approaches to develop local businesses.
