Automotive

AUTOMOTIVE

Novel designs, rapid iteration, and innovative business models

Additive manufacturing allows for rapid functional prototyping of complex automotive components and the creation of on-demand tooling - increasing design flexibility, shortening product development timelines, and streamlining production.

The technology also enables new business models and supply chains based on localized production, digital warehouses and the on-demand production of both custom components and spare parts.

AEROSPACE & DEFENSE

Whether it’s going to market quicker than your competitors, decreasing your manufacturing costs with new technologies or delivering a product far superior to what’s available on the market, a competitive edge is what it takes to win.

 

For the aerospace and defense industry, that edge is additive manufacturing.

Consumer Goods

Consumer Goods

Market-tested goods and custom components

For consumer goods manufacturers, 3D printing benefits both product development and production. During development, it allows for quickly testing designs and collecting market feedback, and during production can create low-volume, regionally-targeted or mass-produced parts without tooling.

Printing also allows traditionally off-the-shelf components - like buttons, buckles, handles, lids and more - to be customized without the need for custom tooling.

Education

Educating future leaders in Advanced Manufacturing. We’re forming the next generation of additive manufacturing experts.

By investing in additive manufacturing, educational institutions can drive the exploration and adoption of ground-breaking technologies and help students develop the skills needed for next-generation manufacturing careers.

 

Students will gain hands-on experience through the design and production of their own functional parts, researchers will develop new processes and materials that push the limits of additive manufacturing technology.

Oil & Gas

OIL & GAS

Fast prototyping is of particular value in the oil and gas industry. It is often possible to employ agile 3D printing to shorten the development cycle of oil and gas components, thereby reducing the time it takes to proceed with full production.

 

Rapid prototyping allows those in the oil and gas industry to engage in multiple design cycles and quickly test design concepts.

The oil and gas industry requires many low-volume components that are relatively expensive to manufacture, stock and replace.

MACHINE DESIGN

Custom, complex parts made easy - from design exploration to replacement parts.

Using 3D printing, machine designers can print and test multiple variations of a part to quickly optimize designs. With greater design freedom, engineers can create parts that are unattainable with machining and consolidate large assemblies into fewer parts.

Without the need for tooling, manufacturers can customize and print new and replacement parts on demand, eliminating the need to warehouse thousands of different parts.

Manufacturing Tooling

MANUFACTURING TOOLING

Custom tooling and reduced down time on the manufacturing floor.

By quickly producing manufacturing tooling like jigs, fixtures and mold inserts, 3D printing helps shorten lead times and cost, allowing companies to move quickly from finished design to production.

Due to its complex geometry, tooling is typically CNC machined, which can lead to bottlenecks due to limited capacity in both machines and operators. Printing tooling can eliminate those obstacles, reducing down time across the manufacturing floor.

HEAVY INDUSTRY

Highly custom, complex parts in hard-to-machine materials

Heavy industries - from industrial equipment manufacturing to chemical processing - require highly customized equipment and manufacturing facilities. Using 3D printing, complex parts can be created without custom tooling or post-processing - reducing per-part costs and enabling new, functionally-optimised designs.

The on-demand production and geometric freedom of 3D printing allows manufacturers to consolidate assemblies, easily produce one-off designs, and reduce costs for spare parts storage.
