Often referred to as 3D printing, additive manufacturing allows us to produce complex shapes using metal powders. As well as use in rapid prototyping, additive manufacturing enables us to create components that simply cannot be achieved when machining from solid. For example, hollow structures with complex internal geometries and shapes.

The DMG MORI Lasertec 30 SLM machine we use has an available build volume of 300mm x 300m x 300mm. The addition of a RE:Plug system enables us to offer a range of materials. We currently use Aluminium AlSi10Mg, Stainless Steel 316L and Titanium Ti6Al4V, and can procure powders including various types of stainless steel, Inconel and high performance Scalmalloy. Our experienced team is on hand to advise on the most suitable materials for your project.
JRM has the people, technologies and experience to support every stage of the additive manufacturing process. We have a dedicated DfAM (design for additive manufacture) team who can support with design and optimisation for clean sheet designs. We can integrate and assemble multiple parts. And our skills go right through to post processing and finishing onsite if required.
When used effectively by our experienced team, additive manufacturing enables the production of complex parts, in a range of materials with better properties than cast equivalents (approximately equal to billet), quickly and with minimal material waste.
