From metal powder atomization to advanced component production and assembly, Oerlikon provides AM (Additive Manufacturing) services for industrial companies all over the world.

Additive Manufacturing Solutions
Metal Powders | Prototyping | Series Production

Oerlikon AM offers a broad portfolio of AM-tested metal powders, as well as custom alloy development services. Advanced component manufacturing services enable rapid prototyping during early design phases and scale up to series production with qualified materials and processes. 

Enhanced geometric freedom
Formerly complex or impossible geometry becomes simple when AM design principles guide you in new designs.

Fully optimized performance
AM enables you to manufacture designs with fewer components, lower mass, and added features to optimize performance for each application.

Shorter innovation cycles
Innovative products can now be designed, tested and developed more rapidly without delays from expensive tooling and prototype fabrication.

Shorter supply chain
AM’s unrelenting efficiency streamlines production, which allows you to cut supplier, transportation and warehousing costs.

Customization made easy
AM’s flexibility translates into tailor-made manufacturing at lower unit cost, whether you have small production batches or mass customization of components.

Driving new business models
AM offers parts built on demand anywhere in the development cycle, enabling shorter time to market and more competitive business models.
