The AT-3D is a patent-pending innovative additive manufacturing tool. It has several key innovations which facilitate the additive manufacturing of metal components. The first concerns its ability to operate in a “dual mode” whereby it can print using metal wire or metal powder as input feed, affording the benefits of both material forms. A further innovative feature is its very compact design (27cm tall, 15cm wide) which maximizes the potential for its installation as a retrofit to existing robotic, gantry and CNC systems. It’s most significant innovation concerns the use of multiple direct diode lasers which afford the dual mode capability while substantially reducing overall cost. The AT-3D comprises the innovative deposition head and a compact supply cabinet housing the direct diode lasers, associated power supplies, a dedicated cooling system, a single powder feeder, and a single wire feeder. Product options offered include additional powder feeders (up to a maximum of 6), an additional wire feeder (up to a maximum of 4), and total laser power output options ranging between 0.8kW and 2kW.

AddiTec offers Hybrid Manufacturing System (HMS) technology that incorporates its proprietary Direct Deposition Device into a high-specification 5-axis machining center. The AddiTec HMS provides the capability to 3D print and in-line machine complex geometry multi-material metal parts for a wide variety of applications. The integration of the AddiTec Direct Deposition Device into the 5-axis machining center is accomplished with an innovative head deployment mechanism situated off-axis to the machine spindle, which negates all of the complexities and limitations associated with a spindle-based integration. The head deployment mechanism automatically retracts into a sealed enclose when not in use, ensuring that the head is protected during machining operations.

AddiTec offers a proprietary in-house advanced imaging technology based on neutron radiography and tomography, which are proven techniques to image and detect defects in critical components used in the aerospace, energy and defense industries. Traditionally, neutron imaging has been underutilized due to a lack of accessible high flux neutron sources. Unlike other imaging techniques such as X-ray imaging, neutrons penetrate high density materials providing detailed information about internal features. This characteristic affords our customers an extremely valuable post-production nondestructive evaluation capability.

REVERSE ENGINEERING

Many industries operating in a high quality assurance environment, such as nuclear, follow quality assurance practices that require extensive product.

Many industries operating in a high quality assurance environment, such as nuclear, follow quality assurance practices that require extensive product qualification and testing prior to placing an item into service. Over time, the availability of like-for-like replacement parts may diminish, necessitating the use of similar, but different, replacement items and thus requiring extensive and expensive commercial grade dedication. The ability to reverse engineer and additively manufacturer an item in service circumvents these issues, greatly reducing the cost of operating and maintenance programs. AddiTec offers a feature-rich reverse engineering service, providing customers with a back-catalogue of their mission critical components which later can be additively manufactured on-demand. This service can greatly reduce the cost of procuring and maintaining an inventory of critical components while further reducing outage and maintenance risk.

DESIGN OPTIMIZATION

One of the benefits afforded by additive technology is geometrical freedom which allows the production of parts with more complex shapes.

One of the benefits afforded by additive technology is geometrical freedom which allows the production of parts with more complex shapes and with superior and lightweight structural properties. Combined with the multi-material capability afforded by the AddiTec’s laser-assisted metal deposition system, existing products can be significant optimized to improve several metrics such as cost, performance and weight. AddiTec offers an-house design optimization service to assist customers with design optimization options for their products to realize the full benefits of our additive manufacturing services.
