The INDEX Group in Esslingen, Germany, a specialist in industrial CNC systems, is extending its business by introducing new additive manufacturing solutions. INDEX acquired a majority interest in TRUMPF’s One Click Metal GmbH. This participation provides One Click Metal with additional know-how and capital to continue its growth trajectory in the very promising entry-level segment for 3D printers. TRUMPF remains involved as an active and strategic partner and will support the company’s future development in collaboration with INDEX.

With a workforce of about 20 employees, One Click Metal develops comprehensive solutions in the field of metal 3D printing for small and medium-sized components.

TRUMPF employees founded the startup in April 2019 within the scope of the “TRUMPF Internehmertum” initiative and established its headquarters in Tamm, near Ludwigsburg.

One Click Metal’s customers include businesses from the mechanical engineering, tool manufacturing, and automotive industries, as well as training centers. They use the systems not only for product development and prototyping but also for industrial production of individual parts and small production runs.
