Engineering equipment supplier Kingsbury, headquartered in Gosport, Hampshire, has launched Additure, a new metal Additive Manufacturing parts business venture. The company decided to establish the business after being a long-time investor and distributor of AM machinery.
“Everybody is very keen to understand what this technology can do, but there’s not been enough interest to warrant a substantial capital investment in machines,” commented Richard Kingsbury, Managing Director.
The company states that the goal of Additure is to deliver a no-nonsense approach to Additive Manufacturing, making it easier to understand. Many who are already enthusiastic about the benefits of metal AM have yet to decide to invest, and this largely stems from a lack of helpful information and available education. Additure is said to commit to showing and simplifying the processes, technology and mechanics so more people see that AM is a tool.
Ian Brooks, Technical Director at Additure, added, “Additure intends to grow the market by breaking Additive Manufacturing down into the simple questions: why, how, and when. Customers and partners can be assured that we will be open and transparent to help develop their knowledge base and better establish this tool.”
