Kanfit, a specialized metal 3D printing service based in Israel, now offers additive manufacturing of aluminum parts through its sister company Kanfit3D. The new SLM 280 system enables the production of medium to high volume aluminum parts and prototypes using selective laser melting. The new system is in addition to Kanfit3D’s EOS M290 manufacturing machine based on Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) for titanium alloy Ti64G5.

“Our new SLM system has a state of the art high power laser system that reduces the cost per part, while advanced sensors and additional systems ensure best in class processing conditions to deliver highly consistent, top performance additive manufacturing parts,” remarked Zachy Shtamler, COO of Kanfit3D. “Our advanced capabilities will allow us to shorten delivery times for products from one month, for example, to five days.”


“We are very excited about the new opportunities that this new system opens up for us,” said Shachar Fine, Kanfit EVP of Business Development, Marketing and Sales. “Being able to offer AM aluminum manufacturing is another example of how Kanfit pioneers new technological processes to benefit our customers.”

Kanfit serves aerospace engineering company offering full-service solutions—from product specification or 3D model to prototype to serial production. Kanfit manufactures and integrates primary and detailed parts, subassemblies and ready to fly assemblies made from composites and metals. Its sister company Kanfit specializes in the additive manufacturing of high quality medical and aerospace components, including custom-made implants, made from Ti-64 titanium metal and aluminum.

Together both Kanfit3D and Kanfit Ltd. hope to expand into new aerospace and medical sectors, including home defense, and custom-made medical fixtures and devices. The SLM 280 system was installed remotely in a joint effort between Kanfit3D’s technical team and SLM Solutions, Germany via telephone video conferencing due to the travel restrictions imposed by COVID-19.

Victor does not really exist. He is a pseudonym for several writers in the 3D Printing Media Network team. As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
