Triditive, Spain, has announced that US-based Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) equipment specialist, Elnik Systems, is to provide comprehensive metallurgical assistance and production services, at its German and US facilities, to the Scaladd Consortium.
The Scaladd Consortium was established by Triditive to grant industrial companies access to Additive Manufacturing production in metals and polymers, as well as the technology and services provided by consortium members.
Through the cooperation, Elnik will draw on its expertise in the MIM debind and sinter industry, giving access to its wide range of advanced furnaces suited to the processing of metal components, such as those manufactured on Triditive’s AMCell AM machines. Elnik builds furnaces that can process any metal with any binder, including one-step systems and catalytic and solvent debind options.
Triditive expressed its hope that the equipment provided will help to make metal Additive Manufacturing a ‘final solution’ for the industry. “We have a clear objective working with Elnik Systems: to demonstrate that AM is ready for mass manufacturing in metals using AMCell® automated machines,” stated Mariel Díaz Castro, Triditive CEO.
