Siemens expands Additive Manufacturing initiatives in the United States

May 5, 2023

Siemens has announced plans to expand its Additive Manufacturing initiatives in the United States in an effort to accelerate the transformation of the industry through serial Additive Manufacturing. The company is focused on supporting the domestic AM machine manufacturing community, and is working to integrate its motion control, automation hardware, digitalisation software and technology capabilities to assist machine builders.

From its Charlotte Advanced Technology Collaboration Hub (CATCH) located in Charlotte, North Carolina, Siemens intends to act as an ecosystem platform for machine builders, machine users and Additive Manufacturing design engineers alike.

“We are on the threshold of a new frontier in American industry, where the implementation of Additive Manufacturing will bring fundamental changes to the landscape, end-to-end, from product to machine to manufacturing,” Steve Vosmik, Head of Siemens Additive Manufacturing in the United States. “Siemens is very excited to be at the forefront of this process.”

“More than 100 machine builders from around the world are implementing Siemens automation solutions to industrialise their machines,” addrd Rajas Sukthankar, Vice-President, Motion Control, Siemens Industry, Inc. “Now it’s time to support even more customers and accelerate their transformation from single machines to series Additive Manufacturing factories. North America is heading in this direction.”

Siemens can assist Additive Manufacturing job shops as well as Tier One production facilities with end-to-end solutions, including product design software, digital twin machine simulation and virtual execution of manufacturing methods, with full data feedback into the design protocol for necessary adjustments, prior to any machine building.

“This comprehensive suite of software and motion control hardware offerings makes Siemens a viable partner at every step of the AM process,” explained Vosmik.

Siemens is adding metal Binder Jetting (BJT) Additive Manufacturing to CATCH through the purchase and installation of a production machines from ExOne/Desktop Metal and a robotic machine from Meltio equipped with Siemens’ SINUMERIK RunMyRobot application. This application controls the kinematic path of an industrial robot as it integrates with the CNC machine.

Siemens is also establishing an Additive Manufacturing Advisory Board of industry leaders, drawn from various industries and technical disciplines, to provide the company guidance as it works to support the fast-growing needs of the AM market.

Vosmik concluded, “We are looking forward to engaging and collaborating with this talented group of industry experts as we move ahead together into this exciting new world of manufacturing in America.”
