Additive manufacturing services are speeding up product design and development processes with broad acceptance across industries. By using 3D modeling services, additive manufacturing enables businesses to create tools on-demand, and with multiple design iterations in the time taken to procure a single tool conventionally.
Cyient DLM provides end-to-end solutions and expertise in both polymer and laser metal 3D printing services. With a designated tooling design team of 100+ engineers, we leverage opportunities that technology offers by adding value to an existing part such as weight reduction, enhanced performance, part consolidation, reduced costs, and shorter lead times.
Reducing 1 kg in weight can lead to $10,000 saved over the life of an aircraft.
Fewer parts, streamlined supply chain, and lower inspection time.
Higher buy-to-fly ratio. Significant savings on expensive materials such as titanium alloys (conventional BTF ratio of 20:40 for milling process versus additive manufacturing’s BTF ratio of 1.3:3).
Ease of manufacturing highly-optimized designs that are fit for function.
Developmental tooling, prototypes, spares, and custom medical parts can be made at a lower cost compared to traditional manufacturing.
On-demand manufacturing reduced dependency on job holding tools, fixtures, and more.
Conformal cooling, smoother flow passages, high SA/V heat exchangers are examples.
Creating a digital inventory for reduced warehousing costs and enhanced logistics.
