GF Machining Solutions, 3D Systems Enter Partnership

November 1, 2018

3D Systems, Rock Hill, SC, and Switzerland-based GF Machining Solutions have announced their strategic cooperation for jointly developed, integrated manufacturing solutions based on 3D printing.

The partnership, which includes development of a new generation of 3D printing solutions, will combine 3D Systems’ metal-AM expertise with GF Machining Solutions’ subtractive-metal-manufacturing expertise, enabling more seamless and efficient workflow solutions through integration of 3D printers, materials, software and electrical discharge machining (EDM), as well as milling and laser equipment. The result, say the partners, will be the ability to meet customer demand for complex metal parts within tight tolerances at a lower total cost of operation.

The partnership launched at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago, IL, this past September.
