Volkswagen Selects Additive Industries & Metalfab1 for Industrial 3-D Metal Printing Future

Volkswagen and Additive Industries have entered into a long-term partnership to additively manufacture advanced tooling and spare parts for the Volkswagen Group. "Additive Industries recently installed a fully automated and integrated MetalFAB1 system in the Wolfsburg, Germany, plant, and the first products have been successfully produced after an intensive training of the Volkswagen team," said an Additive Industries spokesperson.

 "We see great potential for 3-D metal printing of a broad range of car parts and tooling and have joined forces in Volkswagen internally to increase our facility seven fold to be prepared for the digital future," said Klaus-Jürgen Herzberg, Works Council.

"The investment in the most modern 3-D printing equipment allows us to continue to be front-runners in toolmaking and gives our craftsmen access to the latest technology," added Oliver Pohl, Department Manager.

"For Additive Industries, the partnership with Volkswagen, the world's largest car maker, is a confirmation of our strategy to accelerate industrial additive manufacturing (AM) and focus on innovators in their markets," said Daan Kersten, CEO of Additive Industries.

"We are proud to work closely with the Volkswagen team in Wolfsburg, in keeping with our goal of manufacturing excellence and expansion of the metal AM footprint," concluded Jan-Cees Santema, Sales Director Europe for Additive Industries.
