Metal Additive Manufacturing Lab

3D design into metallic parts

3D printing revolutionizes industrial manufacturing and offers new opportunities for research and development. In the new 3D metal printing laboratory of the University of Vaasa: the Metal Additive Manufacturing Lab, digital 3D models are printed layer by layer directly into finished metal parts. The range of 3D printing possibilities is wide: from simple spare parts to very complex and geometrically demanding components. 3D printing is also known as additive manufacturing (AM).



Laboratory

The laboratory carries out advanced research in metal 3D printing technology and our equipment are one of the best in the industry. Our laboratory ensures and delivers consistent quality and adhere to high safety standards. Our service covers the entire lifecycle of the metal 3D printing manufacturing process right from the design to the actual metal parts.  

Some of the potential applications of our solution include the design and manufacturing of metal parts for different industries and SMEs. For example, automotive industries, production and manufacturing industries and as well as small and medium enterprises.

3D-tulosteita

Metallitulostusta 3D-teknologialla Vaasan yliopiston laboratoriossa

27.5.2021 - WIC Science Channelin haastattelussa professori Petri Helo

WIC Science Channel: Tutustuimme metallin 3D-tulostukseen Vaasan yliopiston laboratoriossa.

Kestävää valmistusta

3D-metallitulostuksella pystytään valmistamaan osia, joita olisi mahdotonta valmistaa perinteisellä valmistustavalla. 3D-teknologiaa käyttävä valmistus on puhdasta, kestävää ja suhteellisen kustannustehokasta.
