SLM Solutions Group AG, headquartered in Lübeck, Germany, has signed a long-term cooperation agreement with BEAMIT SpA, Fornovo di Taro, Italy, which includes the sale of fifteen SLM Solutions multi-laser machines to the Italian company.

BEAMIT is one of the leading contract manufacturers for the automotive, biomedical, aeronautic and aerospace industry in Italy and already has SLM Solutions machines in use. The deal, which runs through to December 31, 2019, will see the company purchase ten SLM 280 2.0 machines as well as five quad laser SLM 500 machines.

“We have been working very closely with BEAMIT for some years now. Italy is a market with huge potential and we are greatly looking forward to stepping up this cooperation,” stated Uwe Bögershausen, CFO of SLM Solutions Group AG. The cooperation between SLM Solutions and BEAMIT concerns the joint development and testing of various parameters for setting the machines when using various metal powders.

“We have been using the machines of the SLM Solutions Group for some time now and find the quality and the advantages of the multi-laser technology compelling, especially regarding productivity, build-part-costs and the high quality of parts. SLM Solutions systems play a very important role for us in further optimising our productivity and the build-part-costs,” added Mauro Antolotti, founder and President of BEAMIT.

The signing of the cooperation agreement is said to represent an important step for SLM Solutions toward leveraging the opportunities that arise from the growing use of Additive Manufacturing technology in the automotive as well as biomedical, aeronautic and aerospace sectors.
