Metal Additive Manufacturing: applications & examples
Micro filtration parts
During the customer’s search for a suitable production technique, they discovered the possibilities of 3D printing. By 3D metal printing, it became possible to produce filtration components with internal cavities & hard-to-reach surfaces.
3D printed filters can create unique gas-air or liquid flows.
Custom made eyewear
Hoet Eyewear – Patrick Hoet
Together with Hoet Eyewear, Raytech produces 3D printed titanium eyewear frames. Non-conventional materials, extravagant designs, new production techniques and extensive personalization characterize the eyewear frames.
The result? Pieces of art to wear on your nose.
For certain applications, 3D metal printing can be a full-fledged alternative for wire EDM and being cost-effective at the same time. The mold making industry is rapidly discovering the possibilities of Additive Manufacturing.
Implants & medical tools
Raytech produces already 30 years stents, implants and chirurgical tools by laser technology (micro laser cutting – laser welding). Besides laser-machining, implants & medical toolings are produced using Additive Manufacturing in metal. Mostly in titanium.
