The history of the company

IB Additive is a new business division of IB Verfahrens- und Anlagentechnik GmbH & Co KG, based in Lage-Heiden, East Westphalia, Germany. At the same time, IB Additive is the trademark for highly productive material flow technology in 3D print production processes with metal or plastic powder. We have been developing and manufacturing metal powder screening stations for renowned manufacturers of industrial 3D printers as “IB Verfahrens- und Anlagentechnik” since as early as 2009. We have been able to call on the conveying technology experience gained during several decades in conventional bulk cargo technology.
