Additive thinking - from product design to the finished product
Additive manufacturing can fully display its advantages, whenever conventional manufacturing methods reach their technological limits. Whether lightweight components, products with integrated functions or individualized parts are required - the focus on the design phase in additive processes poses entirely different challenges. Any good solutions demand additive thinking already during the design/engineering stage. This approach is at the core of the service portfolio of AM Solutions - 3D printing services. Equipped with the latest tools and comprehensive know-how, our experts ensure that the design possibilities of additive manufacturing are fully exploited for the successful completion of your tasks:
Design of new products and re-design for additive manufacturing

3D printing jobs are performed with state-of-the-art equipment from renowned equipment suppliers. Besides high precision and consistent quality, the fully automated manufacturing process guarantees absolute repeatability of the printing results and maximum cost efficiency. If subsequent machining operations are needed, experienced members of the 3D printing services team, along with the required equipment, make certain that only the best results are produced.
For post processing, including surface finishing of the components - from the removal of powder and support structures to surface smoothing and polishing - different technologies and processes are being utilized. In this respect the close cooperation between 3D printing services und AM Solutions – 3D post processing offers significant benefits. For example, already during the design phase we can determine, if your surface finish demands can be met, or if a design change will be necessary. Of course, a modification of existing processes or consumables is also possible.
This comprehensive, perfectly adapted service package from one single source guarantees the efficient and effective handling of your AM tasks and makes a significant contribution towards improving your value added chain and enhance your competitive standing.
