The new partnership will focus on the innovation and growth of additive manufacturing with metal powder bed fusion technology for large-scale industrialization.
Torino/Parma, September 19th, 2022. PUNCH Torino and BEAMIT consolidate their historic collaboration with the announcement of a strategic partnership related to the technological development of additive manufacturing as an increasingly competitive and sustainable instrument compared to conventional technologies.
In order to increase the competitiveness of the Italian Additive Manufacturing landscape, the two companies are committed to develop the additive technological process DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering) at the industrial level, improving its competitiveness throughout the production cycle.
The scope is to ensure growth in the innovation of metal powder printing technology to support an industrial supply chain focused on mass industrialization of automotive products.
The two companies are committed to lead additive technology out of its traditional boundaries of a rapid prototyping solution and give it a leading role in mass production through the development of new processes and technologies that aim for stable, reliable, repeatable, and cost-effective printing.
Another strategic goal is to enhance process and product sustainability based on Circular Economy guidelines, maintaining a high value along the entire life cycle, taking advantage of the concepts of re-manufacturing, re-use and recycling.
“We are excited about this partnership with PUNCH Torino, a company highly specialized in engineering research and development, that will allow us to lead Italian additive technology toward high industrial standards. – says Andrea Scanavini Chief Commercial Officer of BEAMIT – Thanks to its high engineering skills applied to the design and industrialization of technologically advanced products, made with metal powder bed fusion technology, PUNCH Torino will be decisive in consolidating a large-scale industrial printing process. This contribution will increase competitiveness in the European market, including through careful cost optimization and an eye toward environmental sustainability.”
Gianmarco Boretto, Director Hardware Engineering of PUNCH Torino commented, “We are pleased to have BEAMIT, a leading company in the sector, at our side, which, thanks to its great know-how on printing processes with DMLS technology, will allow us to consolidate production processes by improving the development and industrialization of high-volume additive products. This collaboration will strengthen the Italian additive industrial fabric, proposing increasingly innovative, competitive and sustainable solutions to the European market.”
