Metal Additive Manufacturing offers several advantages compared to conventional processes and technologies.

Benefits of Metal Additing Manufacturing

Maximum design freedom

Metal additive manufacturing allows the production of highly complex geometries, impossible to achieve using traditional manufacturing methods. It enables the production of 3D models optimised by FEA and CFD simulations, as well as the application of lattice structures at a fixed or variable density.

Increased performance

When all the functional features of a part can be shaped and manufactured optimally, components such as manifolds, heat exchangers, injection moulding inserts with conformal cooling, combustors and burners perform at their best.

Maximum weight reduction

Outputs from finite element analysis and topology optimisation can easily be manufactured and become real. The use of high-performance metal alloys can be justified as a result of higher material utilisation rates.

Functional integration

Multiple previously assembled components can be integrated and melted into a single monolithic part. This reduces the assembly and welding costs, as well as weights of unnecessary fasteners. In short, your BOM is significantly simplified.

Reduced time from design to a functional part

Long lead times and costs associated with tooling design and production are avoided.

High accuracy

Compared to traditional casting, metal additive manufacturing allows for better tolerances, higher “as-built” surface quality, smoother features and geometrical details.
