Immensa Technology joined global players Sandvik and the BEAMIT Group to strengthen its position as an additive manufacturing specialist across the Middle East. With more than 30 AM engineers in-house, Immensa currently operates in Dubai and Sharjah, Kuwait, Riyadh, and Dammam.
The partnership aims to expand the range of high-end components produced with advanced AM materials. It leverages Immensa’s technical abilities and its position in the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Sandvik contributes to this enterprise by supplying its materials technology, advanced AM processes and metal powers for market penetration in the region.
The BEAMIT Group is the leading AM service provider in Europe, and Sandvik owns a significant stake of the company. The company serves the most demanding industries with high-end, metal AM-components. Their presence in the collaboration makes for an even more extensive array of AM capabilities.
“We are truly excited by the relationship with Sandvik Additive Manufacturing, who are known for their industrial innovation, leading materials expertise, and extensive knowledge in a wide range of additive processes. We see this as a huge opportunity for regional companies, where we can provide them access to high-end, 3D-printed components for the most demanding industries, made in advanced and unique materials from Sandvik,” said Fahmi AlShawwa, Chief Executive Officer at Immensa. “We look forward to collaborating with Sandvik, who has one of the widest alloy programs for AM under the Osprey brand – and leading printing capabilities via the BEAMIT Group. This partnership will create some groundbreaking new solutions, that enable broader customer adoption of AM.”
“We recognize the big potential for additive technology in the MENA region,” said Kristian Egeberg, President of Sandvik Additive Manufacturing. “Through Sandvik’s 158 years of materials knowledge, and our strong expertise across the additive value chain – from metal powder to finished components – we look forward to help drive the implementation of additive manufacturing across a number of industries in the area.”
