Industrial Additive Manufacturing

Freedom of design

Additive Manufacturing (AM) gives you the freedom to create shapes with complex geometries with multiple moving parts all in a single print process.
AM is unique, inasmuch it exploits what is effectively impossible to achieve using conventional manufacturing methods, giving the designer opportunities to challenge and create topology enabling enhancement in part performance.
Our team can help your designers and engineers to understand the possibilities and the real value of additive manufacturing by combination of education and cross department workshops.

Manufacturing transformation

Industrial Additive Manufacturing goes far beyond prototyping, it can enable the review and optimization of production processes, setup and production configurations.
Products can be printed as single part, Jigs and fixtures can be produced on demand, robotic performance can be accelerated by light-weight end-of-arm tooling or molds.
Spare part inventory can be digitized allowing the adoption of on-demand production.
Our Application engineers can work with you to identify the AD opportunities within your company.

Business reinvented

With Additive Manufacturing you can rethink the way you produce products, be that locally or across geographic regions worldwide.
The next industrial revolution is happening. The elements of  Industry 4… Big data, Model Simulation, Cloud Technology, Augmented Reality, AM, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Robots and Cyber security.
Let our business consultants work with you to see how AM can play its vital part within Industry 4.0 and your business.
