Carbolite Gero GmbH & Co.KG, has joined the ColdMetalFusion Alliance, along with other major industry players. Carbolite Gero and other Alliance members seek to create synergies and break down barriers for AM customers. The company’s involvement will allow customers to benefit from the expertise of Carbolite Gero, which is based on decades of experience in vacuum and special atmosphere sintering, technologies that few market players have mastered.

Carbolite Gero intends to work with members of ColdMetalFusion to simplify the manufacturing chain and give customers easy and safe access to the otherwise complex world of sintering. Beyond that, the company will work with ColdMetalFusion customers from pilot plant production to high-volume manufacturing sites.

Carbolite Gero solutions are used in many powder metallurgy manufacturing processes such as thermal/catalytic debinding, drying of parts after solvent debinding, stress relief and sintering in inert gas, hydrogen or under vacuum.

ColdMetalFusion is an alliance of industry-leading organizations with decades of experience in sintering, 3D printing, and classic industrial manufacturing. Together, the members of the ColdMetalFusion Alliance provide services, equipment, materials, software and know-how to customers in the metal industry.

“Over the past 80 years, Carbolite Gero has become a global leader in industrial and laboratory oven and furnace solutions through a continuous effort to manufacture high quality solutions with a current focus on energy efficiency. The advanced technologies in our solutions provide customers around the world with a competitive advantage and significant return on investment,” said Dr. Timm Ohnweiler, Head of International Sales and Product Development at Carbolite Gero. “Through the ColdMetalFusion Alliance, we hope to bring increased robustness to sinter-based additive manufacturing and directly address one of the most pressing issues in the market today: high scrap rates!”

“We believe the ColdMetalFusion Alliance will grow our market by cementing the ties between the sintering and additive manufacturing industries,” said Roberto Matteis, Managing Director of Carbolite Gero.

At Formnext in November in Frankfurt, Germany, ColdMetalFusion Alliance members will demonstrate the Alliance’s industrialization mission.
