India, November 16, 2018: At FormNext in Frankfurt, INTECH and DMG MORI seal a cooperation in the field of Additive Manufacturing. DMG MORI as a worldwide leading manufacturer of machine tools, acquired a 30% stake in INTECH, India, by integrating the SLM technology machines with the OPTOMET software from INTECH.
Committed to Additive Manufacturing and related software solutions, including machine learning and artificial intelligence for the Metal Additive Manufacturing industry, INTECH will soon release numerous solutions, aiding users with ease of machine operations and process control, producing quality components at optimized costs, thereby empowering customers to adapt this technology quickly.
Mr. Christian Thönes, CEO of DMG MORI AKTIENGESELLSCHAFT, says: “With INTECH we strengthen our global footprint in India and accelerate innovative development in Additive Manufacturing. First time right – that means being fast towards the first good part. We are actively pushing ahead with integrated series solutions along the whole process chain for generative manufacturing.”
Commenting on the partnership, Mr. Sridhar Balaram, CEO of INTECH noted, “Leveraging synergies is key, and the collaboration is a perfect fit of hardware and software.” He also added “OPTOMET can also be applied to other key AM technologies, such as Direct Energy Deposition and Binder Jetting. OPTOMET is a game changer for the whole AM market.”
INTECH supplies software solutions not only for the LASERTEC SLM series from DMG MORI but also for other products and customers using powder bed technology. The new OPTOMETsoftware automatically calculates the optimal process parameters. This simplifies programming and results in a markedly improved surface quality as well as reproducible material properties. OPTOMET is a stepping stone towards accelerated industrialization of Additive Manufacturing.
