GKN Additive has announced it will showcase its metal Binder Jetting (BJT), engineering and mass production capabilities at Formnext 2022. The company will demonstrate its end-to-end digital workflow from design through post-processing and qualification in an IATF 16949:2016 certified environment. Using the real-life example of a collaboration with HP and the electrical engineering group Schneider Electric, GKN Additive will show the quality of its metal Additive Manufacturing.

Sinter-based Additive Manufacturing requires expert knowledge, and this is where GKN Additive’s position as part of GKN Powder Metallurgy comes into play. Among other things, this results in its in-depth PM knowledge and extensive experience in the sintering process. Thanks to this wide scope of experience, the company is able to identify potential problems in advance and knows which adjustments may prevent them from occurring in the first place.

“We can produce components with complex geometries on an industrial scale and demonstrate additional added value in the products. As consultants and product developers, we take a very close look at the design of the products and, wherever it makes sense, adapt it optimally to customer requirements and the production process,” stated John Dulchinos, president at GKN Additive.

As a global industry partner and one of the top manufacturers of Additive Manufacturing parts, GKN Additive has a familiarity with the needs of the industry. The company’s manufacturing sites combine automotive industry standards with Additive Manufacturing series production and work to meet the most complex industrial requirements. As a result, its engineering experts may provide useful advice and local support in the implementation of ideas, from the initial concept phase to industrial series production.

“Metal Binder Jetting makes 3D metal printing scalable for industrial series production,” added Roland Pahl, VP Commercial Europe at GKN Additive. “However, the technology offers much more as it brings significant optimisation potential for many components. Industrial companies in all sectors can benefit from the advantages of Additive Manufacturing techniques with Metal Binder Jetting, especially if they are under high pressure to innovate and have reached their limits with conventional technologies such as metal investment casting.”

The GKN Additive booth will be at Formnext in Hall 12.1, C39.
