“There are numerous challenges in additive manufacturing. Addressing some of these together with RISE and the centre’s other partners is going to be very exciting," says Ulf Rolander, Senior R&D Expert på Sandvik Coromant.

Additive manufacturing, commonly known as 3D printing, enables a paradigm shift in the manufacturing industry, impacting various sectors. In an effort to support the manufacturing industry in embracing the technology and further the Swedish adoption of it, RISE founded the Application Center for Additive Manufacturing, in collaboration with industrial partners and academia.

Since its inception, the centre has expanded significantly, encompassing a wide range of expertise and equipment, playing a continual role in fostering sustainable transitions and resilient value chains.

Sandvik Coromant, now the 19th member of the centre, specializes in providing cutting tools and services to the metal cutting industry. Sandvik Coromant is part of the Swedish multinational engineering company Sandvik AB.

"We are very happy to welcome our new partner Sandvik Coromant to the centre. This partnership is particularly significant in overcoming post-processing challenges and will fortify the Application Center for Additive Manufacturing. I anticipate a future marked by fruitful cooperation and joint accomplishments," says Seyed Hosseini, Director of the Application Center for Additive Manufacturing.
