Global aerospace and automotive engineering Group GKN has formed a new brand for its additive manufacturing (AM) activity.

GKN Additive will act as the focal point for all AM activity in the future, the company says.

GKN has made components arts using AM for aerospace and automotive. It is also a powder producer through its Powder Metallurgy division.

‘The benefits of AM are significant, both for our customers and the world around us in terms of greener, more efficient production,’ said Jos Sclater, head of strategy at GKN. ‘There is also a tangible feeling that manufacturing is suddenly a very exciting place to be for the brightest and best engineering talent. […]Thanks to our specialist powder business, Hoeganaes, and based on our 250 years of manufacturing and engineering experience, GKN is outstandingly placed to continue to lead in all four areas.’
