The Aconity3D is a start-up, situated in Aachen's high-technology surrounding of the RWTH University and Fraunhofer research institutes. With the founding team's technological background in production and informatics, the company’s focus is set on 3D printing of metal parts by means of powder bed laser melting.
Main business activity of the Aconity3D is development of equipment for powder bed laser melting of metals. Towards this end, the company seeks to combine maximum functionality in terms of modular open-ended machine concepts at an attractive price structure due to customer specific dispatch. At this, the experience of our personnel helps in identifying and satisfying customer needs.
The Aconity3D acts as a system provider by offering the opportunity of manufacturing finished 3D printed metal parts. At this, the Aconity3D supports the customer in the phase of process related design exploiting increased functionality while keeping manufacturing costs low.
Additive Manufacturing allows rapid development of a prototyping technique to a full-fledged manufacturing technique also used in production environments. Through this course you will get a good understanding of the different technologies, applications, freedoms and constraints. The Additive Manufacturing course is supported with a practical assignment of the various processes and materials.
The founders of the Aconity3D stand out by long-lasting experience in the field of Additive Manufacturing gained at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology, which is widely renowned for its pioneer work in powder bed based laser melting processes. Thus, consulting allows for overcoming specific customer challenges. Towards this end, identifying promising new applications for integrating Additive Manufacturing in existing value chains are of main interest. Further activities comprise software and hardware training, establishment of best-practice guidelines in terms of process related design and technological counseling.
In the framework of “one-stop-shopping” the Aconity3D also distributes material. This business unit is focused on maintaining high powder quality in order to guarantee optimum results for each specific customer need.
The Aconity3D provides a testing facility, furnished with in-house equipment of flexible modular powder bed laser melting machines. This allows for investigating feasibility of demanding customer inquiries in terms of materials or applications. The customers are also invited to rent the equipment, facilitating vertical and horizontal integration of the laser melting process in existing value chains.
