Large Scale 3D Metal Printing Opens Opportunities in Agricultural, Mining and Construction Industries
With larger machines and lower volume runs, the ADDere 3D manufacturing system can allow for manufacturing efficiencies in a variety of areas. In the Off-highway, construction and mining markets, the laser wire additive manufacturing technology can offer a cost-effective alternative to short-run casting of complex components. The 3D metal printing system can also reduce the time it takes to get those components in-house for final finishing.
With ADDere’s ability to print a variety of metals, including most iron-based alloys and at a large scale, the laser wire additive manufacturing system can open doors in steel and nickel alloys that were previously out of possibility with short run casting and forging firms.
Being able to test components at scale and in the production-specified material, the ADDere metal 3D printing system can greatly reduce the time necessary to prove out component design feasibility – and before moving into more production-based processes. This gets products to market quicker as well as the opportunity to iterate faster.
