3D Printers for Material Development

The 3D printer adAM-RD® processes metals and plastics in powder and wire form. A highlight is the subsequent upgrade of the printer with a 160kV X-ray source by the University of Kassel. Upgraded in this way, it is used for the ad hoc development of materials with high repeatability and for 100% control of components, ideal for certified parts.

Component Refinement

The Eckelmann Group brings years of experience in the automation of CNC machining centers for various materials. Whether milling, drilling, cutting, or grinding: With components, automation solutions, individual customer service from the Eckelmann Group, and years of experience, the post-processing of additively manufactured parts is also possible. 


With E°MILL, Eckelmann offers a package for 3D printers that provides solutions for many applications and machine types. It includes all the hardware and software components needed for automation — from control including PLC and HMI to drive technology.

Eckelmann CNC, motion control, and PLC complete solutions are used as control platforms for machine control. Engineering also includes individual HMI design – ideally adapted to the functionalities and requirements of 3D printers.
