SLM Solutions and SAP announce their cooperation

  • In connection with the Early-Access-Program, SLM Solutions will become a partner for the application SAP Distributed Manufacturing
  • In addition to SLM Solutions, other partners will be APWORKS (Airbus Group), MOOG and Heraeus

In connection with the Early-Access-Program, the world-leading provider of systems for additive manufacturing, SLM Solutions Group AG, will become a partner of SAP. SLM Solutions will use the beta version of the application SAP Distributed Manufacturing and will, in turn, provide SAP with feedback. The mentioned program is part of a cooperation between SAP and the logistics enterprise UPS and is intended to strengthen 3D printing in the industrial manufacturing sector.

Henner Schöneborn, member of the board of SLM Solutions Group AG, explains: "When SAP offered us the cooperation, we accepted immediately. We are happy to support the further development of the software SAP Distributed Warehouse. SAP has the same goals as SLM Solutions: The further strengthening of 3D printing in industrial manufacturing."

In connection with the partnership, SLM Solutions will test the application extensively, supported by the SLM Solutions Software GmbH, and provide SAP with feedback.

Uwe Bögershausen elaborates: "Industrial cooperations are an important part of the enterprise strategies of SLM Solutions Group AG. Optimization of the interfaces and the software deployed in the industrial manufacturing process is highly advantageous for the customers because they can now integrate SLM systems smoothly into their manufacturing processes and thus produce complex parts and components of highest quality. This further enhances SLM Solutions' development into a comprehensive solutions provider for additive manufacturing and will allow SLM Solutions to grow faster than the market."
