Siemens AG and the Additive Manufacturing (AM) Unit of Oerlikon’s technology group, Oerlikon AM, have announced a strategic partnership: Siemens will supply its digital enterprise solutions to accelerate the digitalization of Oerlikon’s additive manufacturing. 


Dr Karsten Heuser, Vice President, Additive Manufacturing, Siemens Digital Industries, declared, “Working together, we believe we can make a major impact on industry’s adoption of AM.”

Digitalized Additive Manufacturing 

Integrating Siemens’ Digital Enterprise Portfolio with Oerlikon’s current software will elevate and create a digital factory, allowing the remote management and control of the end to end AM engineering processes through a single interface.

Dr Sven Hicken, Head of the Additive Manufacturing Business Unit at Oerlikon, stated, “Developing a more integrated system that gives us increased visibility and puts all of our manufacturing sites on the same page will allow us more flexibility and speed in responding to customer requests. We expects this to lead to more rapid progress in integrating additively manufactured parts into series production.”
