Sandvik at Formnext Frankfurt 2018Industrial AM for real

Formnext 2018 is taking shape fast and Sandvik is gearing up for an exciting presence at this leading forum for Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology. This year, we’ll be featuring a range of real-world AM-produced customer cases and our OspreyTM metal powders for AM.

Our customer cases showcase Sandvik’s expertise across the additive value chain, spotlighting different materials, different AM-process technologies, and tailor-made post-processing methods. All are genuine industrial components, not prototypes. And they all deliver clear improvements in performance, functionality, productivity, or effectiveness, thanks to AM.
