Joint Venture in Additive Manufacturing AMEXCI AB, officially inaugurated its newly-established State-of-the-Arts production site on Monday. The company has settled down in Karlskoga – the centre of Mid Swedens’ industrial cluster – with the mission to act as a resource when the manufacturing industry adapts to Additive Manufacturing.
More than 80 invited guests were guided around the AMEXCI facilities on Monday. They where welcomed by CEO Edvin Resebo and his team together with the Chairman of the Board, Joakim Westh. The guest of honour, Peter Wallenberg Jr. was representing the Wallenberg family. Marcus Wallenberg was the initial founder of AMEXCI late December 2017 as he gathered industrial stakeholders to investigate if collaboration could be a fruitful approach to speed up the implementation of Additive Manufacturing.
As ten industrial companies and Equity company FAM joined forces, it was determined that AMEXCI should act as an external AM resource with an end-to-end approach, focusing on research and development activities, including services such as design and material development, development of process parameters and procedures as well as pilot production and qualification.
Equipped to meet operational demands
Until this day, the AMEXCI team has been focusing on building the new site for research and devlopment, equipped with State-of-the Art capacity that can meet the shareholders operational needs when implementing the processes in their own production line.
“We are very happy to finally get to welcome our shareholders and representatives from the industry to AMEXCI. Now that we have our machines in place and a strong team of individuals with expertise in the different fields of this technology, we feel confident to proceeding in our mission of driving the industrialisation of AM forward”, says Edvin Resebo.
Speakers of the day: Tobias Stittgen, Aachen Center for Additive Manufacturing, Dr. Hans J. Langer, CEO and founder of EOS GmbH, Vladimir Navrotsky, Chief Technology Officer, Siemens Gas & Power and Joakim Westh, Chairman of the Board AMEXCI.
