Additive Industries partners with Laser Lines to expand UK & Ireland business

"With Laser Lines Ltd we add an experienced partner to our fast growing worldwide network" - Daan Kersten, CEO Additive Industries

Additive Industries, the Eindhoven-based developer of the MetalFAB1 AM system, is partnering with Laser Lines Ltd, a supplier of 3D printing, scanning and laser equipment, to increase its presence in the UK and Ireland. Together, the companies are aiming to accelerate the maturation and adoption of metal additive manufacturing within the UK and Irish markets.

The news of the partnership follows a recent announcement that Additive Industries was opening a new Development Centre in the UK to expand its business. The new AM centre, announced in March 2018, is led by Dr. Mark Beard, a British expert in 3D printing who joined Additive Industries’ team in late 2017 as head of its Process & Application Development division.

Through the partnership with Laser Lines, Additive Industries will receive support and guidance from the Banbury-based company in developing and expanding within the UK and Irish industrial markets, specifically in the aerospace, automotive, medical and general machine building segments.

“Our customers are looking for industrial metal additive manufacturing solutions and as a trusted supplier of 3D printers both in plastics and metal, industrial lasers and 3D scanning equipment, we are well positioned to introduce Additive Industries and their MetalFAB1 system,” commented Mark Tyrtania, Sales Director of Laser Lines. “We are looking forward to working with Additive Industries and further strengthen our commercial strategy with regards to metal 3D production solutions.”

The MetalFAB1 is a laser-based metal 3D printing system which integrates multiple lasers, as well as heat treatment, automated build plate handling and storage technology. The metal AM system is built specifically for industrial series production and features a modular architecture which allows users to easily scale up their production operations. Modules can also be added to the MetalFAB1 system to enable the use of multiple materials in a single machine.

“With the recently announced expansion to the UK with a dedicated Process & Application Development Centre, we already acknowledge that the UK & Ireland is an important market that provides great opportunities for industrial companies to enter into industrial metal additive manufacturing,” added Daan Kersten, CEO of Additive Industries.

“With Laser Lines Ltd we add an experienced partner to our fast growing worldwide network that will work with us to identify and manage these opportunities that will contribute to our execution of our accelerated growth.”
