Laser Deposition or Selective Laser Melting (3D Printing)
Currently being scaled up to 65mm diameter sections and upt o 4m long in profiles similar to those enjoyed by aluminium.
Metal Injection Moulding
Similar shapes to those in plastic injection moulding, produced in a similar timeframe.
Cellular and Foam Structures
Metal and ceramic foams and pourous structures suitable for a range of filters, medical devices and areas where extreme weight reduction is required.
Thermal Spray Coatings
We are able to do mm thick coatings of a range of materials.
Thin Film Coatings
Physical vapour deposition (PVD) is used as a hard coating for wear surfaces and for corrosion resistance. The most commonly used coating in titanium nitride.
Hot working of powder via a traditional forging process to create near net shaped parts.
