WHAT IS ADDITIVE

MANUFACTURING?

Additive manufacturing is the process of overlapping multiple layers of material to make objects from virtual 3D models.

This process has the advantage of eliminating different construction constraints typical of traditional subtractive technologies (machining with machine tools),

making it possible to create extremely complex, customized and much lighter parts in a relatively short time.

This peculiarity has made additive manufacturing a widespread production process in the medical and aerospace fields.

STRESS RELIEF

AND OTHER HEAT TREATMENTS

The additive manufacturing process can be compared to an overlap of welded layers, for this reason most of the materials need a heat treatment of stress relief, in order to release the internal tensions accumulated during the printing process.

 

Thanks to Carbolite Gero, which allows to obtain an inert atmosphere with less than 30ppm of O2, we are also able to perform other types of heat treatments (annealing, solubilization, etc.) minimizing surface contamination due to the presence of oxygen at high temperatures reached during treatments, optimizing the desired mechanical properties.
