Materialise NV, Leuven, Belgium, has entered into a development partnership with Additive Industries, a Dutch company specialised in metal Additive Manufacturing equipment. The partnership will see the development and integration of Materialise’s build processor software into the new MetalFAB1 system from Additive Industries.

Materialise stated that it is building partnerships with machine manufacturers to bridge the gap between 3D software and a wide range of 3D printers. Their latest partner, Additive Industries, is a relatively new company in the Additive Manufacturing market that focusses on a variety of industries such as aerospace, automotive, medical, high-tech equipment and more.

Equipped with automated build plate handling and in-line heat treatment, Additive Industries plans to launch its MetalFAB1 integrated metal Additive Manufacturing system later this month.

The Additive Industries Build Processor will simplify the 3D printing process for everyone with a MetalFAB1 machine. The software will facilitate the communication of data to the machine and will provide users with a clear overview of their print jobs. Its state-of-the-art slicing algorithm with help users to handle large design files.
