Prototyping in AM

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Additive manufacturing enables GKN for a completely new thinking in design and manufacturing. By layerwise production, we are now able to produce very complex structures that would not be feasible for a conventional production. Structural elements, especially for the technical lightweight, as well as complex parts with integrated functionality can be fully realised using additive manufacturing.




GKN is a full service provider, with a networked and integrative approach in Additive Manufacturing: 

  • ​​We are offering a one-stop solution for our customers. This includes in the first step an in-house material development of water atomized and gas atomized powders. 
  • Afterwards, we are able to support the design by a FEA based topology optimization. 
  • The following production process in a prototype or volume production is the last step to support the customer on the way from the product idea to the finished product.
