Additive manufacturing — popularly known as 3D printing — is one of the most innovative and revolutionary manufacturing methods. At voestalpine, we are implementing this new technology while making use of our in-house expertise to develop it further. Customers benefit from our leading edge competence throughout the value chain, which ranges from powder and wire development to the delivery of finished products. Additive manufacturing AM uses electric arc or laser technology to fuse fine metal powders or wire into complex and high-strength components.
Starting with three-dimensional CAD data, AM enables the wasteless production of even the most complex shapes. With the use of conventional technologies like milling, drilling etc.
Depending on the application, various methods Powder Bed or Direct Deposition Process with powder or wire are used. A crucial part of AM is using the correct process parameters for each type of printing machine and material.
If a specific process parameter is not already available, we develop it in-house. We are laying the foundation for innovation in additive manufacturing by developing new metal powders and wires that can be adapted to specific applications.
Equipped with the knowledge of our material experts, we are a frontrunner in this revolutionary technology. However, we are continuously developing new powder and wire types for your special needs. An essential part of the success of our additive manufacturing operations is a comprehensive understanding of each and every process in the value chain.
