Wilting acquires three new metallic printers from 3D Methods


Keep updated with every thing that’s taking place within the great world of AM by way of our LinkedIn group.

Wilting, an industrial machining and metallic 3D printing service supplier, has added two of 3D Methods’ single laser DMP Flex 350 and one DMP Flex 350 Twin metallic 3D printers to its manufacturing ground. Wilting has skilled important progress in its enterprise, and these new printers will assist tackle each the elevated manufacturing capability and broader supplies portfolio required by its prospects. The set up of those three DMP Flex 350 programs, alongside the 2 which might be already in use, will allow Wilting to dedicate printers to particular supplies resembling Titanium and Stainless Metal for twenty-four/7 manufacturing of extremely exact end-use components.

3D Methods’ DMP Flex 350 platform is designed for versatile utility use from utility growth to serial manufacturing. The fast-swap construct modules and quick powder recycling assist speed up manufacturing and a central server manages print jobs, supplies, settings, and upkeep to facilitate the 24/7 productiveness Wilting requires to fulfill buyer demand. Because of the distinctive vacuum chamber idea of the DMP Flex 350 printers, argon fuel consumption is closely lowered whereas delivering best-in-class oxygen purity (<25 ppm) leading to exceptionally sturdy components of excessive chemical purity. The printer additionally consists of Oqton’s 3DXpert software program which helps each step of the additive manufacturing workflow from design to post-processing, to rapidly and effectively transition from a 3D mannequin to efficiently printed components.

Wilting acquires three new metal printers from 3D Systems - two single laser DMP Flex 350s and one DMP Flex 350 Dual.

Wilting started as a precision machining firm that was serving to a big producer of semiconductor capital tools produce advanced metallic components to enhance system imaging accuracy and productiveness. In 2012, Wilting started working with 3D Methods’ Software Innovation Group (AIG) to speed up the adoption of superior metallic AM capabilities and experience in its facility in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Via this collaboration, Wilting constructed up its experience in metallic AM, post-machining, and post-processing. Utilizing the AIG’s expertise switch course of, 3D Methods engineers shared data and offered coaching to the Wilting crew to streamline and speed up their transition to AM and safeguard their funding. Because of this, Wilting produces optimized parts designed for larger efficiency in semiconductor capital tools and the analytics and mobility industries and is leveraging this experience and its further DMP Flex 350 programs to increase into new markets and purposes. To accommodate this progress and supply room for future enlargement, Wilting is within the strategy of transferring into a brand new 183,000-square-foot (17,000 m²) facility that’s deliberate to be totally operational by mid-2024.

“For the reason that begin of our Competence Middle for 3D Printing, we constructed up the experience and expertise to provide components at an industrial scale with predictable high quality in a number of grades of Titanium,” stated Geert Ketelaars, Managing Director of Wilting. “The current funding in three further printers permits us to deal with the rising demand from prospects throughout a number of industries to onboard their new product introductions and to broaden our supplies portfolio with Stainless Metal.”

“We place our prospects and their purposes on the middle of every engagement,” stated Raph Alink, Account and Enterprise Improvement Supervisor at 3D Methods. “3D Methods pioneered using additive manufacturing to ship exact, dependable components for semiconductor purposes. Within the early days of our relationship with Wilting, it was rewarding to share the appliance experience our AIG had constructed from greater than a decade working with semiconductor capital tools producers to scale their use of additive manufacturing. As an trade chief, the crew at Wilting rapidly realized AM’s benefits. It’s an enormous step for an organization to convey AM in-house, and Wilting has already mastered the expertise and is now transferring that into quantity manufacturing for its prospects. I stay up for seeing how our collaboration will proceed to unfold, and the potential that AM will unlock for Wilting and its progress.”
