Be the Game Changer in metal additive
manufacturing for serial production

Molten Metal Deposition

Molten Metal Deposition is our disruptive metal additive manufacturing technology. Just like the world’s most known plastic 3D printing process (FDM), ValCUN produces parts directly with liquid metal.
Our process is developed with a fully automated production chain in mind. It’s the only metal additive manufacturing technology suited for your factory floor without intervention and interruption.

  • Reduced manufacturing lead times
  • Easy and affordable operation
  • Cost-effective and environment friendly

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.

Active Industries

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


Compared to machining, when fly-to-buy ratio is over 70%, near net-shaping with ValCUN’s technology is more economical & sustainable.

Thermal solutions

Heat exchangers and heat sinks for electric vehicles, IT infrastructure, semiconductors, and more.

Profiled surfaces

Unique surface structures for casings, housings, lamp shades, and other surfaces with unique properties.

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.
