Additive Manufacturing is a production technique in which the material, plastic or metal, is added, layer by layer, where it is necessary.

Additive Manufacturing is a manufacturing method with a vast potential that is usually applied to high added valued solutions in sectors such as health, aerospace, automotive, architecture, engineering and such.

Additive Manufacturing’s advantages

Flexibility and personalisation

Flexibility and personalisation

The production of bespoke complex components allows developing projects that have been considered impossible until now.

Speed

Speed

The layer addition system reduces delivery times as it directly produces the components from a digital design, avoiding other unnecessary processes such as the production of tools.

Quality and accuracy

Quality and accuracy

This technique allows high precision and control to obtain precise replicas.

Resource’s optimisation and costs saving

Resource’s optimisation and costs saving

The build material is only used where it is needed so it reduces any unnecessary resources leading to a costs saving and more sustainable product.

Material Jetting (MJ)

Material Jetting (MJ)

Drop of a liquid photopolymer onto a build tray to create layers, which will be cured through UV light to build the component
