We can 3D print a variety of industrial metals including combinations of materials
Open new possibilities: Large format metal additive
parts are measured in feet or meters, not mere inches
Tackle part geometries and features that are challenging or not possible for traditional casting or machining
Not your typical robotic programming
CAD to Path Planning
With large format wire-based metal additive manufacturing, the part is manipulated while depositing. Advanced software is critical to address complex path planning and coordinated motion between the robot and the positioner.
Your Complete Finished Part Provider
compared to traditional manufacturing operations.
While fast, customers have had to compromise on size, material waste and porosity limitations.
Wire-based metal additive technology eliminates those trade-offs
and delivers advantages over traditional manufacturing processes
HOW WE DELIVER
The Best Additive Solution for Your Application
Lincoln Electric Additive Solutions is uniquely positioned in this space to bring the right experience and technologies to bear for your project, based on your material and application requirements. Using GMAW arc welding or laser hot-wire processes, we can tap into a deep well of welding deposition, equipment and automation knowledge to meet your needs. Every step is customized to deliver the material and design for your specific application. Every conversation is a collaboration between our team and yours. Every outcome is designed to meet your operational needs.
Connecting Our Experts With Your Experts
- Part Design
- Functional Requirements
- Additive Manufacturing Process
Designing with additive in mind, we look for ways to reduce weight, increase strength, combine materials for best advantage, merge additive and subtractive processes and add functional processes not possible using traditional manufacturing methods. Our goal is to reduce part costs, improve lead times and enhance performance.
Preparation and Customer Review
This is our opportunity to confirm for your team and ours what will be delivered, including a final check in on part design, build strategy, testing, prototyping and final processing
Print / Process
Turn-Key Part Fabrication
- Near-net Shape
- Heat Treating and Other Processing
- Part Finishing
Parts are printed, monitored for bead height and positional stacking, inspected and moved to post processing as requested. Functional prototypes may require less processing, while low volume parts or field failure repair tasks may require finish machining.
Receive Your Part in a Fraction of the Time
- Final Inspection
- Testing Available
- Post-Project Evaluation
Parts are drop-shipped to your destination from start to finish in a few days or weeks compared to several weeks or months for many traditional machining or casting operations.
Cut lead time from months to weeks
