Lincotek and MMB Volum-e to enhance AM solutions in aerospace

November 16, 2022

Lincotek Group, headquartered in Rubbiano, Italy, has announced that it will acquire a strategic stake in MMB Volum-e, Blangy-sur-Bresle, France. The deal is intended to solidify the growth plan of the group’s Surface Solution Division to further penetrate the aerospace market, in terms of both military and commercial applications, via AM.

MMB Volum-e is a family-owned business benefiting from fifty years of experience in the design of parts for a wide range of markets, including aerospace, defence & space, medical & pharma, energy and other industrial equipment. The company has experience in industrial processes, providing an Additive Manufacturing service in synergy with CNC machining and vacuum casting.

The deal is hoped to further strengthen the position of both businesses and will allow for increased investment to meet ever-more demanding customer requirements for integrated solutions in the aerospace market. The combined companies – with forty state-of-the-art metal AM machines installed – are in a unique position to offer the most complete service for AM serial production, assisting customers from Additive Manufacturing to finished part.

For thirty, both companies have been providers of additively manufactured components. Now, through the wider, state-of-the-art technologies available, the companies will respond jointly to the growing demand for finished parts with serial industry configuration for mass production. This, it is stated, will enable serial AM production by combining conventional and AM under one roof.

“We’re delighted we’ve been able to build such a close partnership with MMB Volum-e,” added Andrea Colombo, CEO of Lincotek. “Together, we are creating one of the biggest service platforms in the industry allowing customers to finally move their supply chain to additive produced parts. Combining the technological expertise of MMB Volum-e with our ability to invest, and our profound experience in the additive printing space as much as in the post processing area, we are now set to make even greater strides in the years ahead.”

France Desjonquères, CEO of MMB Volum-e, added, “Lincotek is a natural partner for MMB Volum-e and we very much welcome the business taking a minority stake. Together, we are stronger and can provide a more seamless service across the complete value chain. We have a proud record in both additive and traditional industrial processes and are looking forward to building on our achievements.”
