Low-run Large Scale 3D Metal Printing in Super Alloys with ADDere Additive Manufacturing
One-off components are common in the Oil and Gas industry. The options for these specialized parts are either going through the motions of casting parts or spending large amounts of time either milling or assembling a number of components to get to the one part needed. With the ADDere wire deposition additive manufacturing system, parts can go from CAD directly to casting-level part ready for final machining without having to make molds, cores or shop around for a casting plant that can actually pour the part you need.
With a variety of iron-based alloys like duplex stainless steel and nickel based alloys like Inconel 718 or Alloy X available to print, the ADDere metal 3D printing system allows components that previously leave the shop to get cast, to be done in-house – and with the ability to use much more exotic materials. These materials open up greater resistance to harsh chemicals and conditions and they can be 3D printed at your facility.
