Sandvik Partners for Powder Supply in GE Additive Binder Jet Beta Program

October 19, 2020

GE Additive announced that Sandvik Additive Manufacturing has become a strategic partner in its Binder Jet beta partner program, with Sandvik working to become a certified powder supplier for a range of Osprey alloys that complement GE Additive and the materials portfolio of GE Additive’s materials business, AP&C. Sandvik, marketing its significant alloy-powder program under the Osprey brand, also will use GE Additive’s H2 Binder Jet beta machine to support its internal and external customers as part of the partnership.

The beta partner program leverages GE Additive’s strength in industrializing additive manufacturing (AM) technology with technical partners to rapidly grow its technology, according to company officials. The first phase involves developing the beta H2 system into pilot lines, and eventually into a commercially available factory solution in 2021.

“Our approach to Binder Jet is making AM mass production a reality in every industry,” says Jacob Brunsberg, GE Additive Binder Jet product-line leader. “While it would be relatively easier to launch individual machines, we continue to hear from customers, especially in the automotive industry, that they need a complete solution that can scale.”

Adds Kristian Egeberg, president of Sandvik Additive Manufacturing: “Sandvik is a leading expert in gas-atomized AM powders, as well as in optimizing the materials to customers’ specific print processes and applications. The materials collaboration with GE Additive offers great opportunities to qualify our wide range of Osprey metal powders for its new Binder Jet platform, to enhance end customer productivity and product performance.”
