Helping Customers to navigate in a dynamic 3D-printing landscape
Entering the 3D printing world is a challenge. Several technical aspects need to be considered to find a feasible and competitive solution. Sagaz supports Customers through the downselection process.
Which design and material to choose? Will the achieved tolerances reach our demands? Sagaz helps Customers to evaluated essential qualifications to bring new or existing products into AM production.
Shape new products and solutions "out of the box"
Introducing metal AM as an alternative to traditional mechanical production, is a long-term process. AM could be equated with a technical paradigm shift and it challenges established thoughts about product development and manufacturing. Drilling, milling, and turning are examples of processing methods which has been optimized for decades and hence very cost efficient. But although AM is a quite a new technology there are some obvious advantages which needs to be considered at every design department. 3D metal printing is a door opener to new and more efficient products which at the same time becomes cheaper to produce and faster to produce. Several industries have already introduced AM-produced products as standard and their ongoing investments are pushing the development forwards.
In the example below the weight of the final product is reduced with 50% and at the same time the waste is minimized. More complex designs, normally produced through precision castings, could be shaped without expensive molds and inside cooling ducts.
