Additive manufacturing provides great benefits for the entire production value chain. The geometrical freedom allows you to engineer/design your part as you envision it, without manufacturing constraints. This can be translated to extreme light-weight designs and reduced part counts. It is also a fast production route from CAD to a physical sample part with a very high material utilization and without the need for expensive castings or forgings.
We utilize the latest Arcam printing technology for all metal product prototypes (the same machines used by NASA).
