Our brands include AgieCharmilles, Microlution, Mikron Mill, Liechti, StepTec, and System3R—and together, we deliver complete, efficient solutions to meet your product manufacturing needs.
Direct Metal Printing
Our partnership with 3D Systems has helped to bring Additive Manufacturing technology from the research lab to the factory floor. With our DMP Factory 500, we provide a turnkey solution that includes direct metal 3D printing, powder management, market leading software, and a wide range of raw materials—all supported by technical experts that help take your project from concept to reality.
Our Laser Texturing systems allow our customers to replace grit blasting and acid etching with a clean, digital process that is fully repeatable. With easy-to-use software and unbeatable performance, our customers can map their own textures and structures onto complex 3D surfaces—or use our standard patterns to create the surface characteristics needed to take device functionality to the next level.
Recently introduced, eTracking provides real-time monitoring of critical to quality parameters during EDM operations—taking the control of this process and product quality to the next level. With up to 50 different data points measured and stored every second, users receive a log file that provides documented confirmation of the manufacturing process and allows them to optimize their process better than ever before.
Passion for Precision
Whether your products are injection molds for medical consumables, dies for implantable devices, orthopedic or dental implants and superstructures, GF Machining Solutions offers market-leading technologies that help you provide best-in-class solutions to your customers.
