We offer international career opportunities, numerous training opportunities and job rotation.
Additive Manufacturing (AM) is developing dynamically, opening up new areas of application on an almost daily basis. This means that the paradigm shift towards the digital standard of Industry 4.0 has already become reality. Pankl will continuously aim to integrate new developments in Additive Manufacturing into existing value-added chains and to consider questions arising throughout this process in all areas from product design to process development and staff training from a holistic perspective.
Cooperation as the key for success
The possibilities for this new manufacturing technology are enormous, but for its industrial application there are still numerous hurdles to be overcome: advancing developments in the Additive Manufacturing sector will only be possible through a close cooperation of companies, research institutions and universities.
The Pankl Additive Manufacturing Competence Center (PAMCC) constitutes so far the largest cooperation of technology enterprises in the fields of
- powder development,
- process technology,
- application engineering.
Together with globally known brands such as voestalpine Böhler Edelstahl, EOS and Quintus Technologies, Pankl Racing Systems has set up its competence centre with the goal of pushing the limits of AM further and to strengthen its position particularly in the automotive high-performance and aerospace fields.
The cooperation with voestalpine Böhler Edelstahl, a globally leading enterprise in the high-performance metal industry, makes it possible to embark on a joint, customised development process of innovative and optimised metal powders as ideal starting products for the printing process.
With EOS, we were able to gain the support of the pioneering provider of laser sintering machines. EOS not just brings many years of experience with regard to process technology, but also provides us with the latest generation of machines even before they are launched on the market.
The right thermal after-treatment is the fundamental basis for the functionality of printed components. For this reason, we also installed an HIP-press (Hot Isostatic Press) by our partner and globally leading provider Quintus Technologies.
Our close cooperation with leading universities, in particular with the Leoben University of Mining and Metallurgy, aims at familiarising students with Additive Manufacturing, and focuses especially on showing them which new requirements and challenges it brings.
In combination with the wide-ranging development competence and the existing market access of Pankl Racing Systems, this cooperation is the ideal basis for the development of innovative products as well as tailor-made solutions for the racing and the aerospace industries and to support our customers as best we can when it comes to implementing Additive Manufacturing.
The fact that we have full control over the complete added-value chain helps us optimise quality and logistics on the one hand and drive and perfect development in all areas on the other, from powder production to process implementation all the way to after-treatment.
