CONCEPT Laser GmbH

Company

Concept Laser GmbH, which was founded in 2000 by Frank Herzog, is one of the world’s leading providers of machine and plant technology for 3D printing of metal parts. Since December 2016, Concept Laser has been part of GE Additive, a division of the world's leading digital industrial enterprise General Electric (GE). GE Additive was founded in 2016 and acquired 75% of the company shares of Concept Laser, among others.

The technology driver is the patented LaserCUSING® technology from Concept Laser. The powder-bed-based laser melting of metals opens up new freedoms when it comes to configuring parts and also permits the tool-free, economic fabrication of highly complex components in fairly small batch sizes. The company’s customers come from many different sectors of industry, for example medical and dental technology, the aerospace industry, toolmaking and mold construction, the automotive industry and the watch and jewelry industry. Among other materials, Concept Laser’s 3D metal printers process powder materials of stainless steel and hot-work steels, aluminum and titanium alloys and – for jewelry making – precious metals.

In addition to first-class additive production machines, also from Concept Laser, GE Additive offers materials and extensive development consulting for various industries. GE Additive is dedicated to the further development and transformation of the industrial sector with software-defined plants as well as networked, adaptable and forward-looking solutions.
