Additive Manufacturing Market Trumpf takes over 3D printing joint venture with Sisma
Italy — With the acquisition of the joint venture Trumpf Sisma, Trumpf is expanding its dental and medical business in 3D printing.
The high-tech company Trumpf is expanding its dental and medical business in the Additive Manufacturing division in Italy: As announced last year, the Ditzingen-based company has completely taken over the joint venture Trumpf Sisma from its Italian partner Sisma at the end of 2021. The German company previously held 55 percent of the shares. Trumpf will continue Sisma's LMF (Laser Metal Fusion) business in the industrial, dental, and medical markets.
The previous joint venture will be renamed Trumpf Additive Manufacturing Italia and will remain headquartered in Schio, northern Italy. There, around 60 employees work in the development and production of metal 3D printing machines with Laser Metal Fusion technology.
Simultaneously with the sale of the joint venture and its own LMF division, Sisma plans to focus on the jewelry and fashion industries in the future and distribute LMF machines from Trumpf for these markets.
The two companies did not provide further details on the agreements.
