3D Metalforge Pte Ltd, headquartered in Singapore, has signed a binding channel partner agreement with IKM Measurement Services Australia (IKM MSA) to promote and represent 3D Metalforge’s AM machines and services to customers in Australia and Southeast Asia.

Headquartered in Perth, Western Australia, IKM MSA is a subdivision of the IKM Group, and is a specialist service provider to the oil & gas, mining, transport and construction industries. The company offers calibration services from a NATA accredited laboratory and provides services to customer assets offshore. It also acts as a supplier for test instruments and rental of measurement and major capital equipment.

“We are extremely pleased to be collaborating with IKM Measurement Services Australia,” stated Matthew Waterhouse, Managing Director, 3D Metalforge. “We can truly offer customers a point of differentiation providing a range of AM-related services from diagnostic, design, part production through to training and cloud IP management; and, in this instance, this is a great opportunity to promote our AM technology to IKM Australia’s customers.”

Stuart Taylor, Managing Director, IKM MSA, added, “IKM Measurement Services Australia see this collaboration as an opportunity to continue expanding its service portfolio to our oil & gas customers.”

As part of this agreement, the parties will explore the possibility of expanding this from a regional agreement into a global one. The wider IKM Group employs around 2,500 people within forty-five companies in twelve regions.
