brand eins Wissen and Statista: SLM Solutions Is the Innovator of the Year 2017

SLM Solutions again distinguished as innovator
(PresseBox) (Lübeck, ) The business magazine brand eins Wissen and the statistics portal Statista have honored SLM Solutions Group AG as one of the most innovative companies in Germany. The company from Lübeck again received an award as an innovator for its technical achievements in additive manufacturing.

SLM Solutions has firmly established itself as a leading provider of metal-based additive manufacturing technology. The company focuses on the development, assembly and sale of machines and integrated system solutions in the field of selective laser melting. High-quality metallic components are produced based on CAD data in the SLM process. In the production process, a very thin layer of metal powder is applied to the substrate plate and the contour is subsequently melted by one or more lasers. Then the plate is lowered by one thickness layer, and a new layer of powder is applied. Thanks to the flexibility of the modular system and the variety of materials, the machines create new potential in production in many industries such as the automotive industry, research and development, aerospace, energy technology, mechanical and plant engineering, and medical and dental technology.

Uwe Bögershausen, Executive Officer of SLM Solutions Group AG, was pleased to note: "The award from one brand and Statista impressively confirms the beneficial use of our technology in many industries. We are very pleased to have again received this award as Innovator of the Year."

This was already the second time that brand eins Wissen and Statista conducted a survey for the award as Innovator of the Year 2017. They interviewed 2000 leading representatives of award-winning innovative companies and 250 specialists of the Institute for Innovation and Research as well as 20,000 executives and employees with many years of professional experience.
