3D printing can reduce outage time, save costs and reduce waste
We work with automotive, aerospace, energy and industry. Our new factory in Worcester will be fully powered by Siemens Digital Enterprise solutions and brings together R&D, Engineering and Additive Manufacturing expertise under one roof. Materials Solutions is a pioneer in the use of Selective Laser Melting (SLM) technology for high-performance metal parts.
With 3D printing the possibilities are endless!
What is additive manufacturing?
Additive Manufacturing is revolutionising design and manufacture industrial components. It enables us to design in a completely different way. By creating components layer by layer, we can quite literally think laterally when designing. We can create parts from the inside out, incorporating integral features in places that traditional casting simply can’t access.
Using ‘3D printing’ we digitally cast parts, using fibre lasers to trace slices of CAD models in layers of powered high-performance metal alloys to form solid objects. It’s an incredibly complex yet very simple process through which we can turn raw, powdered materials into precise solutions.
This process is transformative not only because it is faster and more accurate than traditional casting methods, but also because it is changing design. We providing AM engineering and manufacturing services including design and material consultancy, Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM), printing prototypes and small lot series, post processing and certification.
Our Worcester-based team are specialists in using Additive Manufacturing technology to solve complex engineering challenges for our customers across a range of sectors including aerospace, automotive and power generation. Our new facility will give us the space and scope to continue to innovate for these specialist and demanding industries and achieve a shift in the perception of 3D printing from being a technology associated with prototyping to a viable option for the serial production of additively manufactured parts.
