AM Partnership Amexci and SLM Solutions want to accelerate industrialization of metal Additive Manufacturing
Germany — The Additive Manufacturing company Amexci, founded by eleven Nordic based industrial companies and Selective Laser Melting pioneer SLM Solutions strengthen their partnership. The joint objective is to further accelerate the industrialization of metal-based Additive Manufacturing.
A partnership between Amexci and SLM Solutions aims to boost industrialization and support companies to successfully implement AM technologies for serial production of complex metal parts. As part of the partnership, specific case studies will be used to evaluate Additive Manufacturing and test the competitive industry advantages of different machines and technologies offered by SLM Solutions. Additionally, Amexci evaluates the use of the recently introduced SLM machine NXG XII 600 for industrialized series production.
The basis for the joint cooperation is the Additive Manufacturing company’s investment in the latest SLM 500 from SLM Solutions. The machine offers excellent features for industrial series production, the company claims. As the first quad-laser system on the market, the machine is suited for the rapid cost-effective production of large metal parts. The multi-laser overlap strategy with up to four 700 Watt lasers ensures maximum efficiency. The ability to change the build cylinder minimizes machine downtime, maximizes productivity and reduces cost per part.
Amexci, together with its customers develops a new generation of products where AM acts as an enabler for higher competitiveness and more sustainable production. Furthermore, the company offers a wide range of trainings and workshops to build up successful business cases for their customers. At its AS9100D certified lab in Karlskoga, Sweden, the company has the capability to design, produce and qualify components. Founding shareholders of Amexci are ABB, Atlas Copco, Electrolux, FAM, Husqvarna Group, Höganäs, Saab, Scania, SKF, Stora Enso and Wärtsilä.
