The Index Group, Esslingen, Germany, has acquired a majority interest in Trumpf’s One Click Metal GmbH, based in Tamm, Germany. The deal will provide One Click Metal with additional knowledge and capital to continue its growth trajectory in the market of entry-level Additive Manufacturing machines. Trumpf will remain involved as an active and strategic partner, supporting the company’s future development in collaboration with Index.

Trumpf founded One Click Metal in April 2019 within the scope of the “Trumpf Internehmertum” (or, Trumpf Internship) initiative. Today, with a workforce of about twenty employees, One Click Metal develops comprehensive solutions in the field of metal AM for small and medium-sized components. From programming to manufacturing, to unpacking and the powder cycle, all process steps are said to be geared towards the simplest, most convenient use.

One Click Metal’s customers include businesses from the mechanical engineering, tool manufacturing and automotive industries, as well as training centres. The systems are used not only for product development and prototyping, but also for the production of individual parts and small production runs.
