Cincinnati Incorporated (CI), a build-to-order machine tool manufacturer based in Harrison, Ohio, USA, has partnered with Multiax America, a custom designer of CNC machining centres, headquartered in Grandville, Michigan, USA. The partnership will allow each company to provide required products in the Additive Manufacturing market.

CI explains that in AM, components almost always have to be machined after they are additively manufactured. This secondary machining process gets the part to its final dimension and smooths the surface. 

Multiax America now offers CI’s Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) machine, and CI in turn now offers the Multiax line of 5-axis routers. The result is said to be a turnkey solution for customers that saves time and opens up to the service and support of two manufacturing companies.

“Because an overwhelming majority of BAAM-printed parts require secondary machining, we’ve had a goal to partner with a leading CNC machine manufacturer for some time,” stated Alex Riestenberg, Additive Manufacturing Product Manager at CI. “Multiax is that manufacturer. Our open-book relationship will make both of us stronger, and it will ultimately better serve the customer.”

According to CI, the applications that see the most success with the BAAM machine are tooling and moulds for the aerospace, marine and automotive industries. Reportedly 100% of those applications require CNC machining, and Multiax machines are said to be suited for those operations. 

Ed Gauthier, CEO of Multiax America, commented, “Our partnership with Cincinnati Incorporated allows us to offer customers one of the finest 3D printing systems in the market today. We believe CI will have a similar advance with their customers and our Multiax CNC router systems.”

The company states that a Multiax P Series moving bridge machine will feature alongside the BAAM machine at the CI showroom in southwest Ohio, enabling customers to see how beneficial an additive turnkey can be. 
Joe Bockrath, Strategic Sales & Marketing Specialist at Multiax America, reported, “The partnership will let both companies expand our customer bases and provide high throughput 3D/AM production systems for the emerging advanced manufacturing sector.”
