We industrialize 3D printing through
additive manufacturing for your industry

SOLIDTEQ is a Rheinmetall Group start-up for 3D printing with SLM. From our origins in the Prototyping Department at Rheinmetall subsidiary Pierburg, we bring together comprehensive, intragroup expertise in metal 3D printing. We see ourselves as SLM technology pioneers and a driving force behind this new key additive manufacturing technology.

 

3D printing technology pioneer from a reputable group

An integrated technology group, Düsseldorf-based Rheinmetall AG is a powerful, internationally successful, listed corporation on the environmentally-friendly transport and threat-appropriate security technology markets.

 

Rheinmetall Automotive AG is the transport division of the Rheinmetall Group. As a global automotive supplier with over 100 years' experience, Rheinmetall Automotive tops several market segments in the sector. SOLIDTEQ draws on the Group’s resources to develop its 3D printing technology.

More expertise

SOLIDTEQ is a Rheinmetall Group start-up. Originating in the Prototyping Department at Rheinmetall subsidiary Pierburg, we bring together comprehensive intragroup expertise in metal 3D printing. We see ourselves as technology pioneers and a driving force behind this new key technology. Using the selective laser melting (SLM) procedure, we simply “print” components from aluminium, steel or nickel powder.

  • Latest machines for selective laser melting (3D printers)
  • Specialization in metal 3D printing. For companies that want to reduce development times and tool costs for prototypes and small batch series.
  • Access to all the parent company's resources
 

More than just 3D printing

We integrate all phases in the additive manufacturing value chain from an integral perspective – from development to finishing work. This goes hand in hand with our long-term goal of providing the benefits of additive manufacturing not only for rapid prototyping but also for series production.

  • Integration of manufacturing steps upstream and downstream of 3D printing
  • Consistent process quality, stability and reliability
 

Customized support

We will guide and support you throughout the additive manufacturing chain, delivering exceptional SLM solution quality. Flexible, uncomplicated and fast-responding. No matter whether you require iterative prototype development for mass production or design-optimized production of small batch series, individual items or hybrid parts.

  • Support for planning and development
  • Innovation consultancy
  • Support in eliminating design obstacles
