Formnext 2023: Fraunhofer IGCV and Nikon SLM Solution sign a Memorandum of Understanding

November 8, 2023 - Fraunhofer IGCV and Nikon SLM Solutions AG strengthen their cooperation in the multi-material sector.

At Europe's largest trade fair for additive manufacturing, Formnext 2023 in Frankfurt a.M., the two parties signed an agreement in which they declare their intention to expand their joint work and make the knowledge gained accessible to the wider AM community.

The aim is to jointly advance the further development of technologies and processes in the multi-material processing of metals. Current research focuses range from industrial applications for the aerospace and automotive industries to toolmaking and even jewelry manufacturing.

We look forward to taking a step forward together with Nikon SLM Solutions AG, sharing our findings with a wider audience and to starting into a profitable collaboration.  

For closer cooperation in the field of additive manufacturing
