Company Profile

VBN Components delivers patented, near net shape metal tools and components with unique properties, manufactured through a specific 3D-printing process developed in-house. The materials, branded Vibenite®, have exceptional wear resistance, high heat resistance and are pore free. Small and well-dispersed carbides contribute to the characteristics of the materials. No other company can 3D-print with such high carbide content.
