The specialty chemicals group ALTANA is acquiring the business of TLS Technik GmbH & Co Spezialpulver KG, an internationally leading manufacturer of metal powders for 3D printing, and thus strategically expanding its ECKART division. TLS, which is based in Bitterfeld, Germany, and has 25 years of experience, is regarded as one of the world's leading specialists in the production of high-quality metal powders for industrial 3D printing.

In addition, ALTANA announced the acquisition of the British company Aluminium Materials Technologies Ltd. Besides others, the company developed the patented special alloy A20X for 3D printing, setting new standards in strength and weight. The technologically highly innovative special alloy enables the manufacturing of significantly lighter components with outstanding mechanical properties.

3D printing permits decentralized, industrial production. The technology is revolutionizing the industrial value chain by making global supply chains more time and cost efficient. With the economic challenges posed by Covid-19, the importance of 3D printing will continue to grow.

In the future, ECKART will work with TLS and AMT experts to optimize and develop metal powders for 3D printing, thus opening up new areas of application. In doing so, ECKART is building on its core competencies: decades of expertise in materials production, efficient research and development, and access to international markets.
