Why should you be interested in Additive Manufacturing? Here are some of the benefits and new possibilities.

Delicate part only possible through AM

Revolutionise engineering with Additive Manufacturing (AM)

In the dynamic world of engineering, AM stands at the forefront of innovation, reshaping the landscape from prototyping to full-scale production. This advanced technology is offering unprecedented versatility in processing a diverse array of engineering materials tailored for high-performance applications:

  • Legacy components: Transform the production of existing designs, legacy components, and spare parts. With AM, experience a significant reduction in both cost and time compared to conventional manufacturing methods.
  • Design without limits: Embrace the freedom to create or redesign parts that were once constrained by the limitations of traditional manufacturing. AM opens the door to intricate, geometrically complex designs that are lighter, yet robust – designs that are virtually impossible to achieve through standard dies, molds, or machining processes.

Elevate efficiency, minimise costs: On-Demand manufacturing with AM

Transform your production landscape with AM – a strategic solution to drastically reduce operating costs while enhancing manufacturing efficiency. Whether for full-scale production or rapid prototyping, AM is your key to a leaner, more agile manufacturing process.

  • Swift and economical: Embrace the agility of AM in production, especially for low to mid-volume production runs. AM significantly reduces lead times and production costs, ensuring a resilient and flexible manufacturing flow.
  • Zero tooling, maximum savings: Say goodbye to the traditional constraints of tooling and its associated upfront costs. AM leverages direct digital manufacturing, where parts are created directly from digital files, eliminating the need for expensive molds or tooling.
  • Digital efficiency: Streamline your inventory and logistics. With AM, part information and related data are stored and transferred digitally, cutting down on physical inventory and logistics expenses.
  • Localised production, global standards: Deliver parts that meet precise specifications, produced closer to the point of need. This proximity not only reduces shipping times and costs but also supports a more responsive supply chain.

Incorporate AM into your production strategy and experience a paradigm shift in manufacturing efficiency and cost reduction. It's more than just a technology; it's a competitive edge for the modern manufacturer.

Digital inventories: Pioneering the future of digitalised manufacturing

In the rapidly evolving landscape of manufacturing, the shift towards digitalisation is not just a trend, but a strategic imperative. The core of this transformation lies in the mastery of digital inventories, where CAD files and meticulously structured inventory data become the foundational elements of modern manufacturing processes.

  • Building a digital repository: The rise of digital inventories is revolutionising how companies approach manufacturing. By accumulating a robust digital inventory, businesses are lowering entry barriers and seamlessly integrating into the world of AM.
  • Efficiency and accessibility: A digital inventory not only streamlines the manufacturing process but also democratises access to production capabilities. It enables an efficient, agile, and cost-effective transition into AM, empowering companies to quickly adapt and respond to market demands.
  • The power of CAD: In this digital manufacturing era, CAD files are more than just design tools; they are the blueprints for future innovations. These digital assets allow for precise control, rapid prototyping, and customisation, paving the way for a more dynamic and responsive production environment.
