Oerlikon signed an agreement to acquire Germany’s citim GmbH, a leading company in additive-manufacturing (AM) design and production of metal components. The deal expands Oerlikon’s AM technology and service portfolio with established 3D-printing capabilities in the U.S. and Europe. citim’s core expertise lies in metal additive manufacturing for small-series production and functional prototypes. The acquisition will help Oerlikon, whose portfolio of metal powders includes materials fully qualified for AM, become an independent service provider for AM components.
