Our additive manufacturing center is technology neutral, we will help you navigate through the options by helping you ask and answer the right questions:

Do you know how additive manufacturing will impact your business?
Additive manufacturing creates risks and opportunities

Do you know your materials?
Very limited number of qualified materials, especially for steels

Do you know which additive manufacturing technology fits your needs?
Data/parameters cannot be compared between different machine manufactures or machines

Do you test your additive manufacturing-produced products?
Products produced by additive manufacturing have different material qualities compared to traditional manufacturing, and therefore cannot be directly compared

Do you know how to ensure quality for additive manufacturing produced products?
No industry standards exist yet for quality assurance processes and data collection

Do you understand your customers’ expectations regarding additive manufacturing products?
Absence of regulations/norms/specifications for additive manufacturing could hinder possible applications and readiness of customers to accept additive manufacturing-produced products

Have you designed your parts for additive manufacturing?
Just hit print and you are done is a myth!

Additive technology alone is not enough. We're working with people who are advancing additive manufacturing every day.
