Sandvik to increase its Additive Manufacturing research

Sweden’s Sandvik AB is increasing its research spending on Additive Manufacturing technology, according to a report published by Bloomberg. In an interview with Mikael Schuisky, Operations Manager for Additive Manufacturing at Sandvik, the company is recruiting further staff for its 3D printing research and development centre in Sandviken, Sweden.

The R&D centre will examine how the technology can be used in production of everything from mining drill rigs to fuel tubes for nuclear power plants, states Schuisky. Advantages may include faster production, increased flexibility and being able to create components in shapes impossible to accomplish through standard methods.

“We’re taking this to another level,” Schuisky told Bloomberg. “We’re making a focused strategic push to research this for the benefit of the entire group.”

Sandvik’s Osprey metal powders division supplies a wide range of gas atomised metal powders specially designed for Additive Manufacturing (AM). Its metal powders are available in a wide range of particle size distributions that are tailored to the individual AM systems and also to the particular requirements of the end application, both in terms of mechanical performance and surface finish.
