Additive manufacturing in the powder bed machine

Additive manufacturing in the powder bed machine

Customer-specific requirements can be implemented really quickly thanks to the additive manufacturing process. This process adds layers upon layers of materials, whether plastic, metallic alloy, ceramic or any others, and shapes them into three-dimensional objects. This is an automated process that allows a level of freedom and complexity that was previously unheard of.

Stable additive manufacturing processes can only be achieved with continuous air preparation and a safe, protective gas atmosphere. This requires innovative flow and pressure regulation products.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

Fused deposition modelling (FDM)

You can only take full advantage of the added value of 3D printing with digitally networked and fully automated process chains.

  • Intelligent transport and handling systems for the optimised flow of materials
  • Inline quality monitoring
  • Cloud-based networking of different manufacturing locations for decentralised, on-demand manufacturing
