  • Complex iron-based overlays
  • Tungsten carbide overlays (WCO)
  • Diamond overlays
  • Laser-cladding
  • Spray and fuse / hardfacing

Additive Manufacturing

Using computer software (such as CAD) and object scanners we can develop designs and create prototypes from metals, polymers, and composite materials. For polymer builds we generally use smaller desktop 3D printers and our Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing facility (WAAM) for large-scale metallic and composite builds.

Additive manufacturing / 3D printing reduces the risk in process development and equipment selection. It allows for the proper selection of consumable materials and the evaluation of parts created using 3D printing technology; allowing more flexibility in manufacturing, more consistent quality, increased sustainability, and reduced costs when compared to traditional methods.
