Additive Manufacturing systems print near-net-shape 3D components from Computer Aided Design (CAD) data. Compared to traditional machining and assembly processes, additive manufacturing significantly simplifies manufacturing and can produce components with highly complex features and all-in-one assemblies.

  • Prototypes can rapidly be printed, which minimize the time from engineering to full production. By eliminating the set-up and tooling costs, and the long lead times of traditional manufacturing processes, metal powder-bed fusion can produce finished prototypes typically in four to 48 hours and allow rapid design modifications.
  • Complex designs and difficult-to-machine parts, such as components with long or partial thru-holes, internal cavities, contours and tapered geometries, conformal cooling channels, and metal mesh or lattice structures can be efficiently printed with metal powder-bed fusion.
  • Multiple assemblies can be made into one part, eliminating the cost and time of machining, welding and assembling multiple components.
  • On-Demand Manufacturing minimizes manufacturing expense and time for one-off applications such as machine shop tooling for injection molding or die casting. Enables rapid printing of student-generated designs in college classes and graduate work.
  • Remote manufacturing allows on-site build of critical replacement components from digital CAD files.
  • Reduced physical inventory by replacing physical inventory cost and space with digital 3D CAD files. Components can then be rapidly and easily printed on-demand from the CAD files.
