There are many metalworking companies that dispose of their waste stream of aluminium as scrap. All aluminium scrap is processed and remelted together. As a result, valuable material properties of individual types of aluminium are lost.
There is a need for better use of the aluminium waste stream that already exists within Flanders.
ValCUN has developed a disruptive 3D printing technology that can print on the basis of aluminium waste streams, regardless of the geometry. The quality of the 3D printed part is equal to the quality of the raw material.
As a technology supplier, ValCUN wants to be the link between companies that have waste streams of aluminium and companies that need production processes for complex components. In this way, ValCUN wants to be an important lever for cross-sectoral chain cooperation.
