One Click Metal, based in Tamm, Germany, has introduced Interchangeable Build Modules for its BOLDseries of metal Additive Manufacturing machines. Using different build modules enables users to convert a single machine into a multifunctional system that can cater to a range of use cases with diverse requirements. Each module is optimised for a specific purpose, providing users the flexibility to choose the most suitable one for their application.

Every build module is designed with identical mechanical and electrical interfaces, enabling simple integration with the BOLDseries machine. Each machine can automatically identify which module has been inserted and make necessary adjustments.
