Additive Manufacturing with Munters
Munters is a global leader in energy-efficient air treatment and climate solutions. Our manufacturing span a variety of components, materials, processes and locations and there is potential for significant efficiency improvements to facilitate sustainable business. We are looking for industrial scale solutions within additive manufacturing to improve our existing processes, secure better use of raw materials and efficiencies of the products while reducing waste and manufacturing footprint.
Munters is driven by innovation and manufacturing is at the core of what we do. Many of our components are advanced and require a large variety of materials and material types, e.g. solid, liquid and gas. In addition, we have several different processes which means the footprint and capital requirements are significant.
Improving the manufacturing process and component design could result in significant financial benefits as well as reduction of negative climate impact. There is potential for better raw material usage as well as reduction of scrap through higher tolerance designs. Our products are already helping our customers improve their climate impact, but we would like to improve our sustainability impact even further across our value chain.
We are looking for partners to co-develop alternative manufacturing solutions using industrial scale additive manufacturing. The solutions should be able to handle combinations of solid particles in a liquid bed, in terms of process and component design as well as material selection. Furthermore, the ability to manufacture different, ideally 3-dimensional form factors with high tolerance is beneficial. A potential partner should be specialized in one or more of these areas.
Your opportunity with Munters
Munters is a global leader in climate solutions for customers in industries where controlling temperature and humidity is mission critical. We are in a growing market, driven by several megatrends, e.g. electrification, sustainable food production and digitalization. In the long run, the aim is to replace the traditional manufacturing process and materials with additive manufacturing solutions.
Partnering with us allows you to co-develop the solution with the industry leading player, where our chemical expertise is a complement to your expertise in manufacturing processes and/or equipment. You will also have access to our experts within R&D, operations and sales to co-develop and validate the solution. A successful pilot may develop into an opportunity to rapidly scale your business e.g. through consulting services, licensing or supply of equipment. There is great potential to co-create an exciting growth journey over the coming years.
Examples of solutions we’re interested in
Additive manufacturing at industrial scale, capable of producing significant volumes with high consistency. Production volumes linked closely to demand.
Material selection and component design
Material selection and component design is important. Our products require different material types and different form factors. We are, for example, looking to improve tolerance to allow reduction of scrap.
We are looking for solutions that would reduce the requirement of operational footprint by improving efficiency. We are also looking to reduce finished goods stock requirement through more timely production.
