The company also is initiating further collaboration with Renishaw in areas such as materials development, AM process technologies and post-processing.

This print capacity expansion follows a recently announced investment of more than $22 million in a new plant for the manufacturing of titanium and nickel powders for additive manufacturing, which will complement Sandvik’s existing Osprey powder offering to include virtually all alloy groups of relevance today.

The new multi-laser RenAM 500Q systems complement Sandvik’s existing AM machines, which include printers from EOS, Concept Laser, Arcam and ExOne. As a collective, the machines now cover a very wide range of printing technologies for different materials and applications.
