Direct access to unique AM resources

Within ACAM, industry partners gain access to an unique AM material, machine and software portfolio, available at our R&D partner’s facilities. More than 100 researchers, 25 years of AM experience and 50+ metal and polymer Systems enable tailored, independent solutions along the entire AM process chain.


Tailored AM consulting services and training

While complexity for free is desirable on the component level, it has to be navigated on all company levels from strategy down to operations when implementing Additive Manufacturing. Within ACAM’s professional consulting and education approach, the outstanding AM know-how, gained in countless industrial and publicly funded projects, is made available for companies seeking for guidance and support on their AM journey.
