Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a term used to describe a suite of technologies that utilize a layer by layer approach to manufacturing parts. It is this technology that allows engineers to design complex near-net-shape components that would be too difficult or costly to produce using traditional subtractive manufacturing methods.
We see Additive Manufacturing as much more than just 3D printing. The successful implementation of the technology is dependent on a deep understanding of design, materials and the printing system to be used.
At voestalpine we ensure the highest possible quality, reliability and consistency by managing every step of the value chain from powder production to the delivery of the finished part.
We aim to make the adoption of Additive Manufacturing as stress free as possible. Therefore, offer our customers a simple consultation process that allows them to choose the level of engagement that’s right for them.
Whether it’s a single part order or series production, printing parts to customer supplied model data or supplying production ready tooling inserts.
We make AM simple.

We draw our expertise across the voestalpine group. Beginning with our extensive knowledge in material development from BÖHLER and UDDEHOLM we combine design, simulation, 3D printing, heat treatment and coating experience, to ensure we can deliver complete solutions to our customers regardless of the project complexity.
Whether you have extensive 3D printing experience or looking at your first project, you can be confident we can support you.
Our global network of voestalpine Additive Manufacturing Centres focus on two main powder based technologies Laser Beam Melting and Laser Metal Deposition. These complimentary applications can be deployed to manufacture complex components or re-manufacture / repair existing high value hardware.
Our experts can help our customers identify the suitable applications that will benefit from AM and which technology can be adopted to deliver the best results.
