SLM Solutions Group AG, Lübeck, Germany, has agreed a new partnership with Rosswag GmbH and Cronimet Holding GmbH to jointly develop special and high-performance alloys for Additive Manufacturing. In particular, the partners aim to develop steel alloys for high-temperature applications.

Rosswag GmbH brings to the partnership more than one hundred years’ metal materials handling experience. The company employs more than two hundred and is reported to be South Germany’s largest open-die forge. Cronimet Group states that it is a specialist in stainless steel scrap, superalloys, ferroalloys and primary metals, and has been supplying raw materials to the manufacturing industry since 1980. The company employs approximately 5,400 staff at sixty-one locations globally.

Uwe Bögershausen, Management Board member of SLM Solutions Group AG, stated, “We’re very pleased to announce this partnership with Rosswag and Cronimet. Both companies are proven specialists in their respective areas. This partnership supports us on our continued path to becoming an integrated solution provider in the field of Additive Manufacturing.” 

According to the partners, Rosswag will take over production and optimisation of the jointly developed metal powders, while Cronimet will supply the processed raw materials for atomisation from its Cronifond product line. SLM Solutions will offer its Additive Manufacturing experience to the development process and subsequently assume responsibility for the exclusive distribution of the metal powders developed. 

“We decided in favour of this close collaboration with SLM Solutions – ranking as a market-leading solutions provider in the Additive Manufacturing area – as they supplement our process expertise, and understand users’ requirements,” added Dr.-Ing. Sven Donisi, CEO of Rosswag GmbH. 

Gregor Zenkner, Business Development Manager at Cronimet Holding GmbH, added, “SLM Solutions also has the right network and dedicated capacities to distribute the developed and produced metal powders in large volumes on a targeted basis.”
