Carbon Steel Additive Manufacturing

Get to Finished Product Faster with ADDere!

The ADDere Lase-Wire additive manufacturing system can print a variety of carbon steel grades. The metal 3D printing system offers some of the best layer to layer adhesion and metallurgical properties in a finished 3D printed metal component. The ADDere’s closed loop control system and purpose-built control software ensures the highest grade deposition of most grades of carbon steel perfect for complex structural work found in the off-highway industry or defense applications where build quality is a necessity.

Using the ADDere system to print large scale metal components also has the opportunity to reduce development times. By printing the component in metal directly from CAD files allows for faster fit up times and product testing by reducing the need for conventional prototype work. Printing parts with the laser-wire additive system produces a large component quickly, that’s ready for finish machining. The system also reduces waste material costs associated with other methods available – sometimes using up to 99% of the material on the product!
