Italian company BEAMIT Group has acquired 3T Additive Manufacturing, based in the UK.

According to the company, 3T Additive Manufacturing holds AS 9100 certifications for aerospace and ISO 13485 for medical production and is an approved supplier for serial production to OEMs across the UK, Europe, US and Japan. The company has around 40 employees and a range of metal 3D printers.

As a part of BEAMIT, owned by Sandvik, 3T Additive Manufacturing will expand its additive manufacturing (AM) capabilities to include advanced heat treatment, NTD, complex machining and post processing, the company said.

‘The AM sector is developing fast and there is a need for dedicated AM partners with specialist skills across the AM value chain, not to mention the resources required to help industrial customers develop and launch their AM programs,’ said Kristian Egeberg, president of Sandvik Additive Manufacturing.
