Siemens, a global leader in AM technology, is expanding its focus on initiatives in the United States that are expected to accelerate the transformation of the industry through serial AM. The company is adding technology to its Charlotte Advanced Technology Collaboration Hub (CATCH) – to incorporate metal binder jet technology – by purchasing and installing an ExOne/Desktop Metal Production System, and a Meltio Robotic System with the Siemens SINUMERIK RunMyRobot application (an application that controls the kinematic path of an industrial robot as it integrates with the CNC machine) onboard.

“We are on the threshold of a new frontier in American industry, where the implementation of additive manufacturing will bring fundamental changes to the landscape, end-to-end, from product to machine to manufacturing. Siemens is very excited to be at the forefront of this process,” said Steve Vosmik, Head of Siemens Additive Manufacturing, in the United States.

Siemens is focused on supporting the domestic AM machine builder community, and is bringing its world-class motion control, automation hardware, digitalization software, and technology capabilities to assist machine builders. From its CATCH, located in Charlotte, North Carolina, Siemens will act as an ecosystem platform for machine builders, machine users, and additive design engineers alike.

“More than 100 machine builders from around the world are implementing Siemens automation solutions to industrialize their machines,” said Rajas Sukthankar, Vice-President of Motion Control and Siemens Industry, Inc. “Now it’s time to support even more customers and accelerate their transformation from single machines to series additive manufacturing factories. North America is heading in this direction.”

Siemens can assist AM job shops as well as Tier One production facilities with end-to-end solutions, including product design software, digital twin machine simulation, and virtual execution of manufacturing methods – with full data feedback into the design protocol for necessary adjustments, prior to any machine building.  According to Vosmik, “This comprehensive suite of software and motion control hardware offerings makes Siemens a viable partner at every step of the AM process.”

Siemens is also establishing an Additive Manufacturing Advisory Board of renowned industry leaders in AM, drawn from various industries and technical disciplines, to guide the company as it seeks to support the fast-growing needs of the AM market. “We are looking forward to engaging and collaborating with this talented group of industry experts as we move ahead together into this exciting new world of manufacturing in America,” said Vosmik.
