Venturing into metal additive manufacturing
04 November 2019
The market for specialist metal additive manufacturing (AM) services is rapidly evolving as more companies realise the advantages which metal additive manufacturing offers over more traditional design and manufacturing techniques.
3D Metalforge, a nascent additive manufacturer, set-out to provide customers with a complete end-to-end 3D metal printing service capable of producing in volume, intricate, high-quality end-use metal parts. Its choice of metal additive machinery would be a critical factor to its success. The systems it purchased needed to be well-supported globally and Industry 4.0-ready. They had to provide the quality, flexibility and reliability that the new venture demanded.
Metal AM company 3D Metalforge was founded in Singapore at the end of 2016. A sister company of 3D Matters, one of South East Asia’s fast-growing additive manufacturers, the company was established in response to rapidly increasing demand for high accuracy three-dimensional metal part manufacturing.
Industrial customer requirements for 3D metal printing services are changing dramatically in the region, from a predominance of short-run prototyping and one-off model-making to more volume production of end-use parts.
This demanded a dedicated new production facility with a significant investment in metal additive machinery.
