Metalpine opens new production site in Austria

Manufacturer of 3D printing materials Metalpine, part of the international htm group (hightech metal investment GmbH), has recently celebrated the opening of its new production site in the city of Graz in Austria. The total capacity of the new site will gradually be increased to 400 tons per year, and its production will be geared towards highly spherical metal powders. All materials are produced at the site using a flexible, environmentally friendly inert gas process, and are aimed at applications such as laser powder bed processes, metal sintering and powder build-up welding. 

The new production site in Graz will also act as a network for industrial and university research and development in the field of additive manufacturing. Working with Montanuniversität Leoben and the Graz University of Technology, it will conduct research into production processes, materials and fields of application within 3D printing.
