3D Systems Fills in Metal 3D Printing with Processing Partnership via GF Machining


Now that additive manufacturing (AM) is being increasingly integrated into end production, OEMs are recognizing that their equipment needs to more adequately fit into typical manufacturing workflows. They also realize that there is still a lot of room to develop in terms of realizing the quality necessary for end parts.


In some cases, achieving these goals may depend on partnering with established businesses in the larger world of manufacturing. 3D Systems is a case in point. After building 3D printers for nearly forty years, it has teamed up with GF Machining Solutions, a division of the $3.906M order intake Swiss manufacturer Georg Fischer. By combining 3D Systems’ strengths in metal AM and GF Machining Solutions’ experience making electrical discharge (EDM), high-speed milling, and laser texturing machines, the two businesses hope to streamline metal AM and processing, more easily incorporate 3D printing into production and change the way that things […]
