Partners & Projects
To ensure our clients get the most of today's metal additive manufacturing innovations, Incus benefits from our partners' expertise in advanced materials, software technologies, and more. Incus collaborates with the following partners to serve your needs.
Lithoz, leading Austrian manufacturer of 3D printing systems for bone replacement material and high-performance ceramics, is a strategic partner providing long-standing expertise in the development of the Hammer Lab 35 series machine and feedstock systems.
Metshape is a German expert in production of indirect additive-manufacturing of metallic components using LMM and development partner of Incus.
The Vienna University of Technology, a leading technical institution, is a key research partner carrying out studies to determine the performance of metals printed with the help of lithography-based additive manufacturing.
Pforzheim University of Applied Sciences, one of the biggest public universities of applied science in Germany, is a key research partner collecting and analyzing data concerning lithographic processing of metallic parts.
The Vienna Business Agency supports local and international companies in all phases of their business development and awarded Incus several projects for the starting phase of the company and to ensure continuous innovation.
Resource Efficient Production of Metal Project
The European REProMag project (2015-2017) focused on research regarding the additive manufacturing of complex geometries with the same performance profile as metal injection molded (MIM) parts. The project helped to lay the foundation for the Incus lithographic printing process for manufacturing highly precise metal parts.
The project received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program (grant agreement 636881).
PRIMUS (PRInting with Metals Using Stereolithography)
The Vienna Business Agency Innovation Funding Program was started in 2019 to support the development of innovative technological solutions within the city of Vienna.
Incus was a part of the PRIMUS project and developed a new 3D-printing concept with a high-performance exposure system, allowing a new class of feedstock with finer metal powders. The use of finer powders is relevant for special performance materials, including refractory applications (Tungsten) or Cutting Tools (Tungsten carbide-cobalt (WC-Co).)
