The Institute of Non-Ferrous Metals (IMN), Gliwice, Poland, has installed an arc403 metal Additive Manufacturing machine from Gefertec, Berlin, Germany, in its Metal Processing Department. The machine will reportedly be employed in the department’s development and refinement of AM materials.

Barbara Juszczyk, PhD, IMN’s Managing Director, stated, “The arc403 machine and its 3DMP® process provide us with an excellent opportunity to further investigate the AM process and to design new materials of controlled mechanical and physical properties.”

Tobias Röhrich, Gefertec’s CEO, commented, “We are delighted to have won the IMN as a new client, since their research and development of innovative batch materials is paramount to 3DMP and the broad range of industries it serves: from manufacturing to automotive to aerospace.”

The arc403 machine allows 5-axis processing of parts up to 800 mm x 900 mm x 1000 mm and 800 kg. Gefertec’s 3DMP technology is a Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) process. It can be used to produce parts in steel, nickel-based alloys, titanium or aluminium.
