Manufacturing in the new Era


We seemlesly integrated 3d printing to the traditional production processes to benefit from the advantages of all available methods.

'3D printing (3DP) has left behind its status as niche technology. As a key element of the Industry 4.0 revolution, 3DP is evolving as a practicable alternative for both product development and conventional manufacturing. The time for further analysis and pilot projects within your R&D division has passed. The issue of 3DP in its broadest sense should now be top of mind at board level as they should drive the value of additive manufacturing throughout the organisation of their company.'

3D Printing Services for the Industry

Metal3D SA offers 3D printing services focused on the needs of the industry and the commercial applications.

Our organization, internal processes, know-how and personal background are adapted to the needs of the demanding customers in a B2B environment.


Allow us to help You!

A single component, or even more a complete assembly, that is already designed and manufactured by traditional production methods, has already incorporated all compromises dictated by the selected method, in terms of functionality, appearance and assembly procedures. In this case, there is little space left for the exploitation of Additive Manufacturing.

Optimum exploitation of Additive Manufacturing capabilities, prerequisites its consideration from the early design or redesign stages.

Our Technical Department is able to provide excellent technical assistance in this process.

Describe to us your project. Send us specifications and drawings. We will offer our oppinion without any obligation from your side.

3d Printing of Metal Parts

Metal 3D Printing has been a dream for long time.
After the first appearance of metal 3d printing machines on the market, expectations for a new era in manufacturing have been raised too high. As usually, a compromise has been established. Printing of complex end-use parts, avoidance of costly tooling for the production and reduced delivery times has been accompanied with compromises, including high production costs and the loss of material homogeneity..
Metal3D SA introduces a new production method for metal 3d printing. It is called Bound Metal Deposition. For a small compromise on part density and surface quality we get cheaper parts with uniform mechanical properties.

Currently stainless steel 17-4PH, Stainless Steel 316L, tool steel H13 and chromoloy steel 4140 are available for printing, but the list of available materials grows fast.
Maximum parts dimensions are 280mm x 170mm x 150mm, although sintered metal parts can be welded to form bigger components.

The geometric design freedom that comes with 3D printing also opens the door to an entirely new class of design leading to a new major benefit of Additive Manufacturing. The possibility of assembly consolidation, i.e. the combination of several parts into fewer, multi-functional assemblies.

Metal3D SA will provide to our customers all necessary know-how to benefit from these transformations.
