Hypermetal, Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal, has launched its metal Additive Manufacturing service offering, becoming what is believed to be the first company to provide metal AM services in the north of the country. The company has been in full production since the beginning of the year, and serves clients from the aeronautic, aerospace, automotive and moulds sectors.

With a strong focus on quality and flexibility, Hypermetal stated that its goal is to become a reference partner for innovative companies in the European market, offering metal AM design and manufacturing services using Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF).

Afonso Nogueira, Managing Partner at Hypermetal, stated, “Metal Additive Manufacturing is fast, flexible, without waste and allows the production of parts that are impossible to obtain by other technologies. There is increasing knowledge and interest by the industry in the potential of 3D printing in general and metal AM in specific, so we believe that it was the right time to enter the market.”

“We are currently implementing quality procedures for certification and anticipate rapid growth over the next three years, aiming to strengthen the team with seven more elements until the end of 2021,” he added. To date, Hypermetal has produced primarily prototypes, jigs, templates and inserts with conformal cooling channels for plastic injection moulds.
