The tradition-steeped family-owned technology corporation joins the ACAM community.
Kurtz Ersa is a globally active machine manufacturer with a century-long tradition that produces, among other things, foam and foundry machines as well as smart systems for electronics manufacturing. Kurtz Ersa entered the metal 3D printing market last year with the sale of the Alpha 140 for tool-less production of metal parts in cooperation with Laser Melting Innovations (LMI), an equipment manufacturer for low-cost LPBF systems based in Aachen, Germany.
The Alpha brings many advantages that are particularly interesting for small and medium-sized companies: A low-cost concept with a built-in diode laser, industrial PLC control and its own slicing tool for data preparation.
“As a machine builder with a century-long tradition, we would like to further expand our expertise in the still rather young AM field together with ACAM. With access to the excellent AM network, we offer our customers an invaluable added value. The bottom line is that this is a perfect combination to be able to support you in any AM related question”, says Clemens Frenzel, Product Manager Additive Manufacturing about the collaboration.
Kurtz Ersa wants to use the AM expertise on the part of ACAM as well as its own experience as a machine manufacturer with a global sales and service network to democratize the 3D metal printing market. This way, small and medium-sized companies will be given better access to the AM market in the future, so that they can also become part of this groundbreaking future technology with many new application possibilities.
We are looking forward to a successful cooperation with exciting projects and welcome Kurtz Ersa to our ACAM community.
