GEFERTEC GmbH was founded in 2015. The GEFERTEC GmbH is an independent company part of Scansonic group that develops and produces machines for wirearcbased additive manufacturing. GEFERTEC has extensive knowledge in the area of wire and arc based additive manufacturing processes together with broad knowledge about metal materials. The machines developed by GEFERTEC allow the generation of near net shape parts with dimensions of up to 3m³ with a 3axis or 0.8m³ with a 5axis CNC control system connected with an active, regulated cooling system. In this way, marketready results of were achieved. GEFERTEC offers individual system solutions for the additive manufacturing of highvolume components based on wire as starting materials. Therefore a team of manufacturing engineers and materials scientists develop new technology concepts that make the 3DMetalPrinting faster, more flexible and more costeffective.
