Additive manufacturing

STARK offers ideal solutions for the specific requirements of additive manufacturing processes. In contrast to conventional manufacturing processes, additive manufacturing involves building up the workpieces and parts layer by layer. Zero point clamping systems from the STARK.basic NG product series are adapted for additive manufacturing processes, designed specifically for use at high temperatures and guarantee the highest possible accuracy and maximum process reliability.

Examples of requirements

  • Production at high temperatures
  • Interface optimisation for various processing steps (e.g. intermediate measurements)
  • Economical from a batch size of 1 to series production
  • High individualisation of products
  • Automation
