GoEngineer and Concept Laser Enter Partnership to Expand Their Combined Reach in 3D Metal Printing

Concept Laser will support GoEngineer in their expansion into metal additive manufacturing

GoEngineer and Concept Laser today announced that they have entered into a partnership that teams the market-leading strengths of each company to expand their respective footprint in metal additive manufacturing. GoEngineer will be a marketing channel for Concept Lasers portfolio of machine solutions.

The partnership is a strong strategic fit, leveraging the two leading companies respective strengths:
GoEngineer has been providing customers with best-in-class products for more than 30 years, combining Stratasys additive manufacturing tools with SOLIDWORKS design solutions. This competitive offering allows GoEngineer to educate their customers across the entire spectrum of design to print, helping organizations bring designs to life.
Concept Lasers global leadership in powder-bed laser metal additive manufacturing systems.
GoEngineer operates 18 training & support centers located throughout the Central and Western U.S.
"The relationship with Concept Laser presents a powerful opportunity for GoEngineer to understand and assist our customers as they develop strategies to move into the metals market while minimizing risk. While there are other 3D metal printing manufacturers, Concept Laser was the best choice based on global performance, market share and relentless innovation," says Brad Hansen, CEO of GoEngineer.
"Were excited to partner with GoEngineer as we focus our combined energies serving a broader range of customers with industry-leading 3D metal printing machine solutions. GoEngineers outstanding reputation in additive manufacturing design, services, and support makes them a premium partner," states John Murray, President and CEO of Concept Laser Inc.
The two organizations recently jointly produced a race car chassis which will be a showcase product at future events. GoEngineer designed the fully dense metal chassis using a workflow involving metrology-grade laser scanners, analysis-driven topology optimization software, and parametric CAD tools. The metal chassis was built on the Concept Laser M2 cusing machine in aluminum. Come see the race car chassis at the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) 2017 Conference from March 19-23rd in Chicago, Illinois.
GoEngineer delivers software, technology and expertise that enable companies to unlock innovation and deliver better products faster. With more than 30 years experience and thousands of customers in high-tech, medical, machine design, energy and other industries, GoEngineer provides best-in-class design solutions from SOLIDWORKS, Stratasys, CAMWorks, and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM).

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
