Danfoss, a Danish manufacturer of cooling, heating, and motor systems, has announced the opening of its first global 3D printing technology center. Based in Nordborg, Denmark, the new 3D printing facility is the first of three that Danfoss plans to open. The others will be located in North America and Asia.

Danfoss CEO Kim Fausing visits new ADM Center in Nordborg, Denmark

Danfoss’ new additive manufacturing facilities, called ADM Centers, are being established in an effort to increase the Danish company’s digital fabrication capacity, bringing it up to speed with current manufacturing trends and technologies.

Officially opening its doors today (August 29), the Nordborg-based ADM Center will aim to provide the company’s European business areas with the means and knowledge to additively manufacture prototypes and production components. The center will offer expert assistance as well as state-of-the-art equipment.

“We offer world-class knowhow and equipment, and I am looking forward to utilizing these new digital technologies to strengthen our offering to our customers. With this first of our ADM centers, we are taking another major leap forward,” said Kim Fausing, CEO of Danfoss.

The much anticipated facility has already attracted the attention of various Danfoss R&D departments, and reportedly has a “major project pipeline” already lined up. It seems Danfoss researchers are eager to make the transition to the digital.

According to Danfoss, the opening of the new 3D printing center (and the imminent opening of two more) signals the company’s digital transformation. In terms of equipment, the ADM Center already houses the HP 4200 Multi Jet Fusion 3D printer—making Danfoss the first “end-user” company in Scandinavia to implement the system.

“These centers will help speed up our R&D and development processes and thus speed up time-to-market, optimize production efficiency, and allow us [to engineer] the products of tomorrow faster,” commented Andre Borouchaki, Chief Tech Officer of Danfoss.

Danfoss was founded in Denmark in 1933. Since then, it has gone on to become a leading supplier of energy-efficient engineering systems. Still owned by its founding family, the company now employs over 25,000 people around the world and has offices in more than 100 countries.

In other refrigeration 3D printing news, a team of UW-Madison researchers today received a $2.1 million grant to continue its development of 3D printed heat exchangers. The 3D printed systems will be used in refrigerators.
