Sandvik Additive Manufacturing, a division of Sandvik AB, and part subsidiary BEAMIT Group, have established a strategic partnership with Dubai-based Immensa Additive Manufacturing Group, a leading Additive Manufacturing solutions provider in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

Immensa Technology Labs is part of the Immensa Additive Manufacturing Group, which is said to have played a vital role in several milestone additive projects across the region, since being founded in 2016. The company develops industrial and mechanical applications in a variety of demanding sectors, including defence, oil and gas, industrial and transportation.

“We are truly excited by the relationship with Sandvik Additive Manufacturing, who are known for their industrial innovation, leading materials expertise, and extensive knowledge in a wide range of additive processes,” stated Fahmi AlShawwa, Chief Executive Officer at Immensa. “We see this as a huge opportunity for regional companies, where we can provide them access to high-end, 3D-printed components for the most demanding industries, made in advanced and unique materials from Sandvik.”

The strategic partnership with Sandvik and BEAMIT is expected to further strengthen Immensa Technology Labs AM offering. With more than thirty AM engineers in-house, Immensa currently operates in Dubai and Sharjah, United Arab Emirates; Kuwait; and Riyadh & Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

“We look forward to collaborating with Sandvik, who has one of the widest alloy programs for AM under the Osprey® brand – and leading printing capabilities via the BEAMIT Group,” continued AlShawwa. “This partnership will create some groundbreaking new solutions, that enable broader customer adoption of AM.”

Aiming to expand the range of high-end components produced with advanced AM materials, the collaboration leverages Immensa’s technical capabilities and leading position across the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and other countries in the MENA region, as well as Sandvik’s leading position in materials technology, advanced AM processes, and metal powders – including high-alloy materials such as super-duplex stainless steels, nickel-based superalloys and titanium, optimised for AM.

“We recognise the big potential for additive technology in the MENA region,” commented Kristian Egeberg, president of Sandvik Additive Manufacturing. “Through Sandvik’s 158 years of materials knowledge, and our strong expertise across the additive value chain – from metal powder to finished components – we look forward to help drive the implementation of Additive Manufacturing across a number of industries in the area.”

The BEAMIT Group is a leading AM service provider in Europe, of which Sandvik has owned a significant stake since 2019. The company serves the most demanding industries with high-end, metal AM components. Their presence in the collaboration is said to make for an even more extensive array of AM capabilities.

Mauro Antolotti, president of BEAMIT Group, added, “With the AM sector continuing to develop very fast, the need for specialist partnerships is crucial to help customers develop and industrialise AM. Combining Immensa’s strengths in digitisation with the advanced AM skills found within Sandvik and the BEAMIT Group, we can provide joint and tremendous opportunities when it comes to advancing AM adoption across the MENA region.”
