The Inside 3D Printing-Melbourne Conference attracted a highly qualified crowd of academics, industrial leaders and entrepreneurs with a large range of additive manufacturing experience. Just a few weeks after the show, the Australian government announced a $250 million investment into the Innovative Manufacturing Cooperative Research Center (IMCRC) catapulting 3D printing to the forefront of Australia’s manufacturing and academic sectors.
Australia’s eagerness to fill their manufacturing vacuum with this cutting edge technology was undeniable. EFESTO has now strategically aligned itself with key players in the Australian additive manufacturing market in order to become one of the key first movers for 3D metal printing. The company offers systems and services, with a particular focus on Directed Energy Deposition/Powder Fed Laser Metal Deposition. EFESTO builded in the last years strong sales channels and high-level customer relationships to offer the best metal 3D printing technologies and applications, including the capability to develop high-end service bureaus around the globe.
