Bossard Group, a market leader in fastening technology headquartered in Zug, Switzerland, has entered the Additive Manufacturing market with the signing of three new partnerships. The company will sell industrial AM systems and related consumables to the Swiss market from Trumpf, German RepRap and Henkel, as well as offering consultant services for those looking to design or redesign complex parts for AM.

The partnership with Trumpf will give the group access to laser-based metal Additive Manufacturing technology, with German RepRap offering fused filament systems and Henkel providing stereolithography.

The company stated that, “The Bossard Group views 3D printing as a forward-looking technology that will transform some areas of industrial manufacturing. Our involvement relies on partnerships with three manufacturers of premium industrial 3D printers and related technical support services. The Group contributes with its technical expertise, vast experience in solving industrial manufacturing problems, and an established sales network.”

In cooperation with its partners, Bossard expects to continually expand the line of AM systems it offers. The group stated that it has chosen to offer for sale systems designed specifically for professional use in a number of areas, including product development, prototyping, model- and mould-making, architecture, product design and the creation of complex components with functional integration.
