High-tech company Trumpf announced that it would acquire the joint venture with Sisma in Italy completely, thus strengthening its Additive Manufacturing business. In addition, the company wants to continue Sisma's LMF (Laser Metal Fusion) business in the industrial, dental and medical markets. The two companies have now signed an agreement to this effect.

In the context of the sale of the joint venture and its own LMF division, Sisma plans to focus on the jewelry and fashion industry in the future and to distribute LMF machines from Trumpf for these markets.

Trumpf Sisma was founded as a joint venture in 2014 and is based in Schio in northern Italy. Around 60 employees work there in the development and production of metal 3D printing machines with Laser Metal Fusion technology.

The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of 2021. The two companies did not provide further details.
