Additive manufacturing - exciting opportunities for the industry

Swedish industry is getting increasingly more involved and interested in additive manufacturing. The technique of printing 3D components layer by layer is an advancing technology.

Demands will increase on the quality of materials, knowledge regarding preperation methods as well as on design and construction. Swerea 3D3 uses the joint knowledge of Swerea within material science and production technology to develop the additive manufacturing area.

We aim to support Swedish companies all the way from idea to verified component. In this work we highlight a number of focus areas eg.

  • Design for functionality
  • CAD quality
  • Powder processing
  • Ceramic prototypes
  • 3D-printing moulds for casting
  • Geometry assurance
  • Material properties
