Additive Works

Logo Additive Works
Additive Works is a Bremen based Software company providing easy-to-use software solutions for simulation based process preparation. Founded in 2015, Additive Works aims at turning laser beam melting for metals into a one click process by integrating novel technologies into the process chain. The software suite “Amphyon" comes equipped with modules to find the ideal part orientation for specific applications, automatically generate optimized support structures, simulate the build up process and use the simulation results to generate 3D models that compensate part distortions. Saving failed builds and manual process preparation time, Amphyon's capabilities tremendously reduce the costs of metal additive manufacturing.

Founded in Switzerland in 1995, BESTinCLASS SA has developed the micro-machining process (MMP), a proprietary precision surface finishing technique. MMP can finely distinguish and selectively apply different primary roughness, secondary roughness and waviness profiles to surfaces. Working from its own treatment labs, BESTinCLASS is poised to provide manufacturers with custom finishes to meet their specifications. An exceptional feature of MMP is its ability to provide selective surface finishes that can be reproduced to industrial standards. The company and the Joint venture using the MMP Technology employs 75 people worldwide, including 35 people in the headquarter in Genolier Switzerland.
