AM Ventures Holding GmbH
AM Ventures Holding GmbH (AMV) is an independent, strategic investor focusing on advanced manufacturing in general and industrial 3D printing in particular. The company was founded by Dr Hans J Langer, CEO of the EOS Group, in 2015.
With the aim of making industrial 3D printing a key manufacturing technology of the future, AMV funds and develops innovative start-ups which focus on industrial-3D-printing-related hardware, software, materials or applications. AMV also establishes and operates production sites based on additive manufacturing for specific and mass produced applications.
The company also provides start-ups with unique access to the technologies, expert know-how and the business network of the Langer Group – such as EOS, the global technology leader for industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers and ScanLab, the technology leader for high-precision scanning systems.
Deakin University has several campuses around Victoria and more than 50,000 students enrolled in its undergraduate and postgraduate programs. It is particularly well known for the strength of its connections with industry and its technological leadership.
It is ranked in the top 2 per cent of global major international universities under the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), QS World University Rankings, Leiden and Times Higher Education systems.
Its Centre for Advanced Design in Engineering Training (CADET) facilities and Institute for Frontier Materials (IFM) were major drawcards for Conflux Technology. We anticipate our partnership will help to develop and refine Conflux’s applications work in the advanced manufacturing field.
