AM in Tooling / General Industry

Giving you fast, perfectly fitting and highly customized tooling and general industrial parts

The use of Additive Manufacturing to produce tools and tooling components improves accuracy and reduces lead times as well as costs. Additionally, it improves part functionality and provides design freedom to customize products.

AM can also be a game-changer for general industrial applications, offering highly-heat resistant and lighter weight components, by using materials like titanium and nickel superalloys.

The challenge of complex functional integration

Designing integrated systems requires new manufacturing technologies beyond today’s conventional possibilities. Today’s components must perform increasingly complex functions requiring close integration of new materials, mechanical and electronic capabilities.

AM allows the production and delivery of components that meet and exceed those needs.

The challenge of low quantity and highly differentiated manufacturing

Mass manufacturing methods are unable to deliver today’s variable short-term production with high customization requirements.

AM allows complex component manufacturing in a flexible and lean supply chain
