Makino and Additive Industries to Develop Integrated Process ChainsNovember 11, 2020
3D metal printer manufacturer Additive Industries and Makino, a manufacturer of milling machines, have signed a letter of intent to conduct a joint project to develop integrated process chains. The agreement comes as the two companies anticipate the upscaling of industrialized additive manufacturing (AM). Rather than treat AM of metal parts and then post processing as separate processes, the two companies aim to develop a process chain where their technologies seamlessly work together, say company officials.
Specifically, the two companies will work on developing and commercializing hybrid process chains supported by their in-depth process knowhow and machine-design experience.
“Our engineering teams have established capabilities in complex five-axis machining applications involving adaptive machining, scanning of components and high-accuracy machining,” says Neo Eng Chong, CEO and president of Makino Asia. ‘We are pleased to be working with Additive Industries to accelerate the industrialization of 3D metal printing.”
Mark Vaes, CTO of Additive Industries, adds, “We will jointly work with Makino on total process solutions for high-end and demanding markets.”
