Advanced 3D manufacturing

Functional samples and final components – super-efficiently and straight from the printer.

Rapid, high-precision prototyping, efficient manufacture of very complex parts, cost-efficient short production runs. When you are faced with challenging engineering design problems, advanced 3D manufacturing from ARNOLD opens up huge potential.

We can build the components you need in record time additively using metal powder - even components that are difficult to make by conventional methods. Almost any weldable metal alloy available in powder form can be used to make them.

Why not take advantage of the opportunities? As early as the planning and analysis stage, throughout the production process, and right through to finishing the component, we are with you all the way.

No forming or tools required

The additive 3D printing process means that you can say goodbye to all those time-consuming pre-manufacturing processes. So you save money and an enormous amount of time – even when the task you face is incredibly complex.

Tremendous weight saving

Organic structures made in a metal 3D printing process are much lighter. So it’s possible to reduce weight without having to compromise on strength or functionality.

A single part instead of many components

Now it is possible to build up a single piece part, where previously such parts needed to be fitted, welded, or soldered.

Selective Laser Melting – the principle

At our own production facilities, we use a material in powder form, which is applied in a thin layer onto a base plate, where a laser beam fully melts it. Once the first layer of material has solidified, we repeat the process with a fresh layer of powder until the component is ready. The software takes the data it needs to guide the laser directly from the component's 3D data.

Advanced 3D manufacturing from ARNOLD makes it possible to make technical innovations, speed up project implementation, and reduce costs.
