More and more manufacturing companies are looking into hybrid manufacturing options that combine 3D printing with more traditional technologies such as machining and molding. Georg Fisher (GF) Machining Solutions is a provider of solutions to the precision machining industry and to manufacturers of precision components. This week, the company announced that it would be partnering with 3D Systems to deliver a combined solution featuring both additive and subtractive manufacturing technologies. By combining 3D printing and precision machining, the two companies will enable manufacturers to more efficiently produce complex metal parts within tight tolerances while reducing the total cost of operation.

“We are excited about this new partnership of two industrial leaders,” said Yves Serra, Chief Executive Officer, Georg Fischer Machining Solutions. “With the combined experience and expertise of 3D Systems and GF Machining Solutions, we are well positioned to bring to our customers new manufacturing solutions based on 3D printing.”

The integrated solutions developed by the partnership will include software for enhanced part design, 3D printers, materials and automated material handling, electrical discharge machining (EDM), milling equipment and advanced post-processing technologies. According to the new partners, the solutions should lead to improved existing products, new designs, new business models and new markets.

“The 3D Systems and GF Machining Solutions partnership brings together two customer-centric innovators to redefine manufacturing and create the factory of the future,” said Vyomesh Joshi, President and Chief Executive Officer, 3D Systems. “As industry leaders, both companies share the same vision for transforming manufacturing. We are looking forward to delivering integrated technology solutions to provide our customers with significant competitive advantage through reduced production time, faster time to part, and overall lower total cost of operation.”

The partnership between 3D Systems and GF Machining Solutions is another example of how companies are recognizing the effectiveness of putting multiple technologies together. Both companies are focused on providing end-to-end solutions, and the combination of 3D printing with other manufacturing methods like machining is often more effective than any one technology alone in taking a part from concept to finished product.

Both 3D Systems and GF Machining Solutions have been around for several decades, and have demonstrated their expertise in their respective fields of manufacturing. Bringing the two together will help manufacturers take advantage of that expertise all in one package. The two companies plan to debut the first combined solution as a result of their partnership at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2018, which is taking place in Chicago from September 10th to the 15th. 3D Systems will be at Booth #431608 and GF Machining Solutions will be at Booth #338754. If you’re attending the show and are interested in learning more about the two companies’ new solution, stop by and visit one or both to learn more.
