Intelligent Additive Manufacturing

Complete solutions for industrial 3D printing: Grenzebach automates and interlinks additive manufacturing processes. For equipment that is used at optimum capacity, a safe working environment and an optimal production flow.




Additive Manufacturing ready for serial production


A new era has started: Components made from metal and plastic are produced with 3D print for more and more industries. Companies are taking advantage of additive manufacturing for serial production. 3D prints mostly used for prototypes or small series so far, now more and more plastic and metal components are identified that can easily be manufactured with additive manufacturing. Producing certain components is only made possible with additive manufacturing.


The challenge of additive manufacturing is the extensive production time of a component in the printer while up- and downstream production steps do have significantly shorter processing times. In addition, any potential health risks for employees must be kept at minimum level and safety regulations have to be observed. Although many work steps around 3D printing, from transporting to unloading the finished product, are still manually executed, automation and network are the basis of efficient and safe serial production and intelligent automation.



Grenzebach takes care of a safe working environment through


  • Minimization of risks for your employees
  • Observance of safety regulations
  • Use of person-safe Automated Guided Vehicles


Grenzebach, specialist for automation technology


The intelligent arrangement of complex processes is one of Grenzebach’s strengths. We work with our customers to create complete solutions which precisely meet their requirements, independently from the printing technology. With intelligent automation concepts from Grenzebach the overall process chain can be harmonized leading to better utilization of the equipment. Should tools or intelligent accessories be missing in the process, Grenzebach provides direct support with in-house production and development. Positioned internationally, we implement solutions for our customers all over the globe.

With a portfolio of Automated Guided Vehicles and inspection technology, robots, conveying and handling technology, the complete material flow around 3D print can be realized. Intelligent additive manufacturing.

Holistic approach

thanks to in-house development and manufacturing. Besides 3D printers we can also integrate other equipment, such as saws, eroding machines, furnaces or finishing systems.
