A multitude of technologies in 3D printing

Additive design and engineering enable almost unlimited freedom for developing new products and offer scope for new design and innovative applications. Conventional manufacturing technologies quickly reach their technical and commercial limits. Additive manufacturing overcomes these limits.

Numerous 3D printing technologies have developed over recent years, each of which has its strengths and weaknesses in combination with the various materials. That is why we don't insist on a single technology, rather we embrace the greatest possible diversity so that we always have the right solution for your application. This is the case for conventional manufacturing as well as additive manufacturing and post-processing. We are committed to making sure that we have a perfect grasp of every technology, because only then does diversity make sense.

As specialists in selective laser sintering (SLS or Laser Powder Bed FusionPBF-LB/P), stereolithography (SLA), 3D metal printing, and vacuum casting, we also provide orientation, as our manufacturing experts use your application and your requirements to select the right technology for producing your product quickly, efficiently, and perfectly.

Additive manufacturing

3D printing, as additive manufacturing is often called, includes all technologies that create a three-dimensional component layer by layer from shapeless material. More and more companies from various industries are using these technologies to additively manufacture prototypes, production tools, 3D printed spare parts, or end products as individual parts or small batch series. As a technology leader, we have access to the world’s most comprehensive portfolio of additive technologies in 3D printing, which we are constantly expanding with new, pioneering technologies. For example, we are currently installing a cold-spray technology for the additive manufacturing of copper components at three times the speed of sound.

Conventional manufacturing

3D printing is not always the right solution for your application. Conventional manufacturing technologies have their place depending on the requirements. Ultimately, the manufacturing technologies and the materials used have established themselves over many years and have proven themselves accordingly. For example, a combination of additive and conventional technologies may be your best choice for the production of small batch series in injection molding. The tool is produced in 3D metal printing and the component is produced via injection molding. That is the reason why we first thoroughly review your inquiry and objectively and impartially recommend the technology that will provide the optimal outcome.

Tool manufacturing


A certain type of post-processing is a fundamental requirement in additive manufacturing, as no component is discharged from the machinery as a product ready-to-use. Supports must be removed and surfaces blasted or functional surfaces need to be milled so that the component can be used. In many cases this type of production-related post-processing is not enough. That’s why we have a comprehensive range of technologies for optimizing a component’s properties, such as metal coating or heat treatment or additional finishing, such as smoothing, vaporing, or painting. As we can offer all of these technologies in-house, you enjoy logistical benefits and save time.
