HEAVY INDUSTRY >
The industrial sector comprises a great diversity of companies with different needs and priorities. The ability of additive manufacturing to adapt to this heterogeneity means that this technology is of great interest to a wide range of industrial companies.
The Industrial sector pursues 4 main objectives for the implementation of the Technology:
Streamline manufacturing of customizable parts
Manufacture of spare parts: additive manufacturing can reduce dramatically the downtime thanks to reducing the lead time and logistics.
Reduction of supplier dependencies
Additive manufacturing means that the customer does not have to have a large number of spare parts in stock, so the outlay is reduced by not having to pay and store so many parts in advance.
The diversity of companies in the industrial sector, the need for adaptation and innovation in their designs and competition create an imperative need for flexible manufacturing systems. The industrial sector requires manufacturing systems that can be adapted to different products and that can be combined with traditional manufacturing methods, thus allowing great flexibility in the sector.
Additive manufacturing generates a new world of possibilities, through design and manufacture of innovative products in an increasingly competitive and global industry that seeks new differentiating solutions. Metallic 3D printing allows optimizing the dimensioning of parts and reducing the number of assembly operations, improving or creating new features for products.
SOLUTION (Proposed by meltio)
Meltio solves some of the problems that commonly present, not only is it much cheaper technology, but much faster, more flexible and, also, more efficient than previous technologies.
The flexibility of our technology makes it possible to work with the combination of additive and subtractive methods, called hybrid manufacturing.
This symbiosis makes it possible to obtain pieces with really good geometries and finishes, worthy of the technological revolution we are facing.
