See behind the curtains of the Additive Manufacturing value chain and meet the team that gets the job done.
Post-processing is an often underestimated but critical last step in the Additive Manufacturing value chain. Machinist Niklas handles 5-axis CNC machines in our production site in Barleben.
His job is to remove excess material, decrease average surface roughness and tighten tolerances of the 3D printed component
As Surface Engineering Manager, Olivier and his team are optimizing processes and technologies for surface finishing that range from CNC machining, to heat treatment to high quality coatings.
To meet the high expectations of our customers, Olivier is also investigating the entire process chain including Materials, the Additive Manufacturing process itself, and multiple post processing technologies.
As a machine operator, Marcel is at the heart of the industrialization of Additive Manufacturing. In our production facility in Barleben, he oversees a machine park with more than 20 metal printers with build sizes from small to large scale.
Marcel's expertise is a crucial factor to produce components that meet the high requirements of our customers.
Meet Materials Engineer Alexandru Hohoi. He is redefining the way we handle and optimize powders for Additive Manufacturing processes.
From investigating powders to optimizing particle size distribution for enhanced material properties, he's playing a key role in transforming powder management into a strategic advantage.
Christopher Schmidt leads the process development team at our Additive Manufacturing facility in Barleben.
He and his team develop and optimize the entire AM process chain in order to increase productivity or meet specific customer requirements.
Meet Senior Design Engineer Dushan Pamunuwa. With his expertise he ensures the optimal design for Additive Manufacturing.
Often, the components of our customers have been designed for traditional fabrication methods such casting or machining. Dushan's job does not only include the redesign and topology optimization of these parts, but also the process simulations.
Take a look over the shoulder of Project Manager Peter Finger. With his expertise Peter coordinates Additive Manufacturing projects from the beginning to the final delivery of the 3D printed part.
In his role he is connecting the dots between our customers and all the internal departments involved.
Meet Alper Evirgen, Senior Materials Scientist at Oerlikon. As part of our R&D team he is leading alloy development projects for Additive Manufacturing.
While Oerlikon Metco is already a leading materials provider for multiple industries, we go one step further by developing new advanced materials for future applications.
