At Materials Solutions (a Siemens Business) have the most advanced tools and equipment and a world-class team of metallurgists and engineer in a good place to think and work.
Additive Manufacturing reduces time to market, shortens supply chains and enables ‘impossible’ products with improved functionality.
This vision is bold and the advantages claimed are substantial, but in many cases the 3D printing technology is not developed to its full potential.
Often, the supply chain is not in place, the specifications for powder, process and materials heat treatments are incomplete, the customers’ requirements not fully understood and the advantages more aspirational than proven.
Over the last 10 years we have learnt how to use metals powder bed additive manufacturing to its full potential, and how to apply it to make larger parts than anyone had made before, in the materials customers needed for high temperature applications. We learnt how to integrate hundreds of parts into 1, removing joins and fastening systems (been doing this since 2006) providing a better product, faster.
