Application Engineering

  • A Global Application Engineering team based in the E.U. & U.S. supporting customers with the expertise to select the right process, machine and material to make parts manufacturable.
  • Support through the full product development lifecycle from concept through to series production.
  • Expertise ranging from prototyping and tooling for transport and general industry to advanced manufacturing of gas turbine components for aerospace and power generation.
  • The ability to help customers navigate the requirements of AS9100, NADCAP, ITAR, ISO 13485 during part and process certification in AM.
  • Expertise to partner with customers in maturing the technology and manufacturing readiness levels to meet industry requirements.

Design for Additive Manufacturing

  • Design for Additive Manufacturing (DFAM) experience to help identify potential candidate parts for AM in a customer portfolio and improve manufacturability of proposed customer designs. 
  • Computer Aided Design (CAD) support with all major software packages to help in the customer design process.
  • Topology Optimization to reduce component weight and optimize structures for performance and manufacturing method.
  • Ultimately, our guidance in DFAM, design for post processing and topology optimization offering all enable our customers to reach the most cost-effective solution to meet each design requirement.

These capabilities, when combined with our experienced R&D team, allow us to advise you on the best possible combination of materials, design, production methods, and post-processing for your project.
