AM-Flow, Amsterdam-based 3D printing post-processing and automation company, has completed US$ 4 million series A funding round.
This funding will allow the company to start providing step-change automation to the Additive Manufacturing (AM) industry, with the aim of achieving what it calls the ‘Lights Out Factory of the Future’. This Industry will consist of Artificial Intelligence computer vision and motion and robotics process 3D-printed parts. AM-Flow’s technology will improve manufacturing speeds and efficiency levels.
“We are delighted to welcome our new investors, and I would like to thank our existing shareholders for their continued support. This strong syndicate of high-tech investors validates our approach and the funding enables us to expand our solution portfolio and market presence,” said Stefan Rink, AM-Flow CEO.
Rink also added, “We have a team that is passionate about enabling Additive Manufacturing to live up to its sustainability promise: local, distributed manufacturing.
