Additive Manufacturing Technologies

For Additive Manufacturing, the respective material is applied layer by layer based on digital CAD or CAM data to build a three-dimensional component. In contrast to conventional manufacturing processes, the freedom in design of 3D printing offers a variety of options for developing innovative products using the principles of lightweight construction, function integration and performance (increase). A number of processes have been developed and become established in the market in recent years.

As a supplier who is not tied to any manufacturers or processes, we can always select the best technology for your application. The selection criteria are material costs, build-up rate, surface roughness, accuracy, component size and component strength.

The costs of Additive Manufacturing result from engineering (re-design), machine running time, material and rework steps. In contrast to this, however, the process impresses with potential savings from lightweight construction, performance increase, reduced life cycle costs, reduced energy consumption and lower material consumption.

3D printing technologies are divided into five main groups: powder bed processes, wire deposition, nozzle systems, hybrid technologies and lamination.

Bionic Production specializes in manufacturing using the following processes:

Additive processes: powder bed fusion

For powder bed-based processes, the raw material for the component to be manufactured is applied in layers and melted with a welding source, e.g. a laser.

Additive processes: wire deposition

For wire deposition welding, the additional material (wire) is melted with a welding source (e.g. laser, electron beam or arc) and applied in layers.
