BOFA Americas, Inc. is partnering with Würth Additive Group in a move aimed at reinforcing both companies' positions in the additive manufacturing (AM) industry.

BOFA Americas, based in Staunton, Illinois, is a world leader in fume and dust filtration systems, with a growing product portfolio, developed specifically to meet the needs of 3D print technology. Würth becomes a partner of BOFA Americas in North America, anticipating extending the partnership on a global basis.

Würth Additive Group, a division of Würth Industry North America, is headquartered in Greenwood, Indiana. It is a partner, distributor, and reseller of AM equipment, consumables, and maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) parts and offers AM engineering services and training. The company’s industrial 3D printing and digital inventory products and services streamline their customers’ supply chain, reduce lead times, and increase adaptability.

The partnership with BOFA will impact Würth Additive Group’s expanding operations in North American locations across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

“The collaboration between the companies creates a compelling technology partnership for additive manufacturing businesses, enabling the integration of BOFA filtration systems with AM systems supplied by Würth. As a result, BOFA systems not only contribute to effective workplace atmosphere management but also filter emissions to help maintain optimal chamber conditions for consistent 3D print quality,” BOFA said in a release.
