Aurora Labs has announced a partnership with Swedish Industrial Company Gränge AB. Both companies have entered a five-year Memorandum of Understanding that will enable the Swedish company to take advantage of metal 3D Printing. During this period, each party might send the other a 180 days’ notice in case she wants to terminate the contract.

Australian Metal 3D Printing advocate will supply its technology to Gränge AB who will in turn supply aluminium powder to Aurora Labs. Gränge AB specializes in aluminium engineering. The company is one of the few companies of the industry that supplies this material, and develops heat exchanger applications on this market.

Among all metal 3D Printing powders, Aurora Labs has already proven the capabilities of its technology with titanium. As a matter of fact, the manufacturer has recently produced a series of 10mm high, titanium hexagon parts; a production test that only took 20 minutes and showed the potential of the manufacturer’s MCP™ technology.

Today, thanks to this partnership, Aurora will conduct new researches regarding the use of aluminium in additive manufacturing. Given the first successful results that resulted from the first production tests with titanium, we might definitely expect new applications of aluminium in AM and new capabilities with the company’s MCP™ technology.

For Aurora Labs’ CEO David Budge, “this is a remarkable relationship for Aurora and we are very pleased to partner with Gränge, a forward thinking and innovative company with products extensively placed across the automotive sector. The proposed transactions, if consummated, could potentially be worth up to approximately $ US 7.75 m in revenue to Aurora. Further, if Gränge purchases one of our RMP-1s, it will lead to some exciting developments in both the internal combustion engine and electric vehicle markets. Aurora is expecting to see enormous growth in additive manufacturing through the automotive sector in coming years.”
