Additive manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing

KMWE uses Laser Powder Bed Fusion technology, an additive manufacturing technology (3D printing), in which powder is joined together to create complex components. This technology has numerous benefits, including:

  • Increased design freedom
  • Lightweight construction
  • Part count reduction
  • Improved sustainability
  • Improved lead times

By utilizing this technology, we can create smarter solutions for our customers and help them improve their business. Contact KMWE if you would like to know how this technology can move your company forward.


KMWE Additive

KMWE has been a pioneer in metal additive manufacturing and collaborated within several partners for almost 10 years. We are now taking the next step by setting up a dedicated production facility for the serial production of complex metal additive manufacturing components.

This facility, located next door to our headquarters on Brainport Industries Campus, will house all the aspects that are required for this. This allows us to offer a one-stop-shop solution for function critical components.

In order to manufacture these components consistently and reliably, we have combined relevant industry standards (e.g. ASTM/ISO 52920) and client specific production standards with our manufacturing expertise to ensure the highest possible quality for our customers.
Our facility will be operational in Q2 of 2024.

While the new facility will be set-up for serial production, we will continue to work together with our partners of K3D / AddFab for the purpose of Research and Development. We will prototype these new serial applications as well.



Our Additive vision

Additive Manufacturing offers many opportunities. Opportunities to create smarter solutions for existing problems and the ability to stretch the current manufacturing possibilities. By using this technology, we aim to help our customers to improve their product portfolio.

Our drive to offer our customers the best solutions means we will have to think ahead, and select and develop the relevant production technologies of the future.

Would you like to know more about the possibilities of additive manufacturing?

Additive Manufacturing is an area of expertise where one development follows the next in rapid succession. This has an effect on the designing of parts. They become function-driven.

KMWE has its roots in the conventional subtractive manufacturing business and the company currently deploys additive manufacturing as a technique for serial production as well. Especially for components that need to be as lightweight as possible, are function-integrated or require internal channels. This ensures that functionality is a top priority.

As Additive Manufacturing Engineer at KMWE, Rob van Loon is responsible for the metal 3D printing activities. He works together with K3D to deliver quality components.

In this video, Rob shows the development of a function-driven part, designed to be as lightweight as possible with the use of topology optimization.
