Making metal 3D-printing competitive for serial production

Economical. Ecological. The logical choice.

ValCUN is a young dynamic tech start-up developing a new & disruptive metal 3D printing technology. Our mindset and hunger for technology & innovation allowed us to take the risk to re-think current state-of-the-art technology. By tackling their major shortcomings, ValCUN allows 3D printing in mass production and outside capital-intensive industries.

We aim for fast and affordable metal 3D printing, enabling mass production. Economical and ecological. We are ValCUN, the logical choice.

Our Vision

Becoming THE game changer in bringing metal AM towards industrial level and beyond.

Our Mission

Becoming THE reference for metal FDM.

Disruptive technology

We are developing a new and disruptive metal 3D-printing technology that is ecological, affordable & competitive.


Using new or recycled materials allows us to bring 3D-printing within any industry’s reach that is looking for serial production alternatives.

Patented technology

ValCUN reduces investment and operating costs by developing a patented technology that uses safe to handle feedstock material instead of metal powders and operates without high-lasers.

We are not done yet. Second patent pending.

Active Industries

Our cutting-edge technology is able to serve multiple industries. Curious to find out if metal 3D-printing can get you an advantage? Get in touch and we’ll spark your imagination.


Near net shape, high buy-to-fly components  have a need for ecological and economical manufacturing process step.

Energy Utilities

Homogeneous heat distribution and controlled heat extraction in high power density electronics such as power mosfets and batteries ensure long lifetime performance.


Faster, lighter, more ecologic, higher performance put high demands on design of parts. ValCUN’s affordable metal additive manufacture is one of the solutions.

IT Infrastructure

Increasing performance and power density in datacenter raise the demand for higher performance and even liquid cooling.

aluminum industry

Higher demand for customization and miniaturization forces the casting industry to more complex parts & smaller series. ValCUN’s technology answers to this extension needs.


Lower functional parts result in lower power needs for operation. integration of cooling with structural component even further reduces power consumption and chances for failure.

Meet the A-team

Bound by passion and ambition. These beautiful faces are the brains and the hands behind ValCUN.

Jonas is passionate about mechatronics and technology in general. Professionally, he holds a PhD in electro-mechanical engineering and has work experience as a system engineer, tackling the technical overview of a project. His spare time is fully dedicated to gain experience in all the stages of product development ranging from electronics, multi-physics simulations, mechanical design, programming, data-acquisition & processing, experimenting to manufacturing. Now both his professional & spare time merged into ValCUN.
