Additive Manufacturing or 3D printing, is a process where components, products, or parts are built up layer by layer by the selective deposition of materials. The list of materials is long – from lots of different plastic materials through to an array of widely used metal alloys. The additive manufacturing process is in complete contrast to the subtractive or deforming processes which are still predominantly used in manufacturing today.
Additive manufacturing is focusing on turnkey components of additive manufactured (also named 3D printed) parts. Our core competences are in the field of surface treatment, heat treatment and hot isostatic pressing, a technology also known as HIP.
Post processing of additive manufactured parts is of high importance. Parts coming out of the printer are not yet finished. Printed parts are seen as a slug with a need for surface treatment, heat treatment as well as hot isostatic pressing. Post processing is an essential part of the entire additive manufacturing chain.
Additive manufacturing can offer a wide technology portfolio and covers more than 84 different processes.
Besides our core competencies we can also deliver turnkey components made by additive manufacturing. We have access to several printers and equipment provided by the strong support of our partner companies. With this in mind we support our customers from re-design, engineering, printing (metal & plastic), machining, heat- and surface treatment.
a disruptive technology on its way to industialization
The difference between additive and the conventional methods of production is unbelievable. The additive manufacturing process can realize geometrically complex objects that would not be feasible with conventional methods. A big advantage is the freedom of form in the design as well as a production without the need of toolings.
But every process – also the additive manufacturing – has its challenges. There are many open questions.
Post Processing of additive manufactured parts is one of the most discussed challenges at the moment. Surface treatment, roughness reduction, stress relieve, hot isostatic pressing and many more are challenged to find the right solutions for additive parts.
We can help you by finding answers as post processing is our core competence. Please have a look at our technology portfolio.
Wir bieten weltweit alle Arten von Wärmebehandlungsprozessen an. Unsere Anlagen sind logistisch eng miteinander verknüpft, so dass Ihnen alle Verfahren zur Verfügung stehen. Erfahren Sie mehr zu unseren Wärmebehandlungsverfahren.
Heiß-Isostatisches Pressen (HIP) dient der Beseitigung von Porosität. Sie benötigen bei Lötverbindungen eine hohe mechanische Haltbarkeit und Unempfindlichkeit bei hohen Temperaturen? Wir bei Aalberts surface technologies bieten die Lösung durch Hartlöten (brazing).
Polymerbeschichtungen können auf viele Grundmaterialien aufgebracht werden und bieten lang anhaltenden Schutz. Sie sind mechanisch besonders gut mit dem Untergrund verankert und bieten verbesserte Gleiteigenschaften und/oder hohe Verschleißfestigkeit.
Mit 40 Jahren Erfahrung in der kontinuierlichen Veredelung von reel to reel können Sie sich auf Aalberts surface technologies verlassen, um innovative Lösungen zu finden. Unser Service umfasst Trommelgalvanik, kontinuierliche selektive Galvanik und Gestellgalvanik.
Fast alle metallischen Grundwerkstoffe können mit unseren selbstentwickelten und patentierten Verfahren durch Oberflächenbeschichtungen in ihren Eigenschaften optimiert werden, egal ob sie besonders hart, glatt, verschleißfest oder korrosionsbeständig sein sollen.
We offer all types of heat treatment processes. Our facilities are closely interlinked in terms of logistics, which means that all processes are available to you. For a complete list and description of heat treatment technologies please select the button.
Hot isostatic pressing (HIP) is used to eliminate porosity. Do you need high mechanical durability and insensitivity to high temperatures for solder joints? We at Aalberts surface technologies offer the solution through brazing.
Polymer coatings can be applied to a wide variety of base materials and offer long-lasting protection. They are particularly well anchored mechanically to the substrate. Additional enhancement layers allow non-stick coatings to be combined with improved sliding properties and/or high wear resistance.
With 40 years of experience in continuous reel to reel finishing, you can depend on Aalberts surface technologies to find innovative solutions that other companies might say are impossible. Our service includes barrel plating, continuous selective plating and rack plating.
Almost all metallic base materials can have their properties optimised by surface coatings using our proprietary and patented processes, regardless of whether they should be particularly hard, smooth, wear-resistant or corrosion-resistant.
