Valmet continues to invest in additive manufacturing technology, also called 3D printing, by opening its second Additive Manufacturing Technology Center in Tampere, Finland. The technology center was opened in September 2023. Valmet’s first Additive Manufacturing Technology Center was established in Sundsvall, Sweden in 2016.
The investment enhances Valmet's ability to deliver value to customers by improving performance, availability, and sustainability. Additive manufacturing leads to material savings through efficient utilization of materials and grants design flexibility. Valmet’s additive manufacturing capabilities support in developing fresh and inventive solutions, enabling faster creation of complex functionalities and products that would otherwise be time-consuming and challenging to manufacture the conventional way.
The biggest environmental benefit comes from the additive manufacturing process itself. 3D printing uses only the required amount of material to create a spare part or a tool. Starting from a powder bed, the end-product is formed layer by layer.
This investment further strengthens our position as a technology leader. It adds to our ability to effectively support our customers' performance in the years to come. Additionally, additive manufacturing enhances the efficiency of product management by digitizing product data and the manufacturing process,” says Ari Telama, Vice President, Performance Parts Business Unit, Valmet.
