Products & Services
We offer expertise and services across the entire additive manufacturing (AM) value chain. Services span from idea to serial production, and include material selection, design and printing, as well as post processing and testing.
We take you through a three-phase process – Plan it, Print it, Perfect it – to ensure you get the most out of AM.
Additive manufacturing services
We offer full-service production of your component – from prototype to serial production.
We offer the widest range of metal powders for AM on the market, and can even customize materials.
1. Selecting what to print
We help identify which components are both suitable and profitable to print. Since we are also the leading experts on subtractive manufacturing, such as metal cutting, we will, of course, tell you when not to use additive manufacturing.
2. Material selection
In what environment does your component exist? Based on 160 years' material knowledge and in-house powder manufacturing capabilities, we are expert at matching material to application. We offer the widest range of AM alloys around and even customize materials.
3. Design and modeling
Additive manufacturing forces us to rethink everything. We have worked in close collaboration with industries like automotive, medical, aerospace and power generation for decades – to understand their material challenges and learn about their applications.
4. Choice of optimal additive process
Being independent is important to us. With all major printing technologies in-house, it means that you can always trust that we choose the optimal process for your component.
5. Print it
From rapid prototyping to serial production, we are at your service. All additive manufacturing processes feature layer-by-layer fabrication of three-dimensional objects, but production techniques vary, depending on material or component. We develop the right printing parameters so that your product gets the optimum properties.
6. Post processing
In order to achieve required properties, it is almost always necessary to post-process components produced with additive manufacturing. We have more than 75 years of leading expertise in post-processing methods such as machining, sintering or hot isostatic pressing.
7. Testing and quality assurance
Traceability, testing and documentation. Building on Sandvik’s long experience in quality assurance, we have made it our mission to build a solid quality assurance system within additive manufacturing as well.
