Additive manufacturing (AM) is a technology classified as Industry 4.0, which permits manufacturing parts layer by layer, based on 3D data of a model. These technologies permit manufacturing 100% functional parts with a high added value and their main value proposal is to save raw material consumption, save energy and to reduce the time between design and end product.
According to data published in the last Wohlers’ Report (reference publication in the additive manufacturing sector) the business volume grew by 17.4% in 2016, reaching a total turnover of close to 6.06 billion dollars. The prediction is for additive manufacturing business to reach 16.24 billion dollars by 2020.
In this context ADDILAN was created, being its main target market, the market of high value components, medium-large sized components in demanding industrial sectors such as the aeronautical, aerospace, energy or naval sectors. WAAM technology permits working with all materials used in welding, including steel, titanium alloys, superalloys and aluminium alloys. These machines manage to achieve greater input rates and the possibility of manufacturing larger parts/performs. Electric arc + wire based processes (WAAM) combine lower costs and high input rates with selvedges of less than 2 mm. All of this guarantees the quality of the part during the manufacturing process.
Our experience as machine-tool manufacturers along with the one of Maherholding Group set the foundation on which ADDILAN can build its entire future, to establish its niche in the additive manufacturing sector.
We keep working to offer complete solutions adapted to each client’s needs.
