Conventional manufacturing processes rely on subtraction or cutting away materials. In contrast, additive manufacturing technologies use powders and lasers to build 3D objects layer by layer. Manufacturing increasingly complex yet lightweight parts offers an advantage to many industries. Parts can also be made or repaired onsite for a faster and more cost-effective turnaround.

Using nature as your model and 3D printing as your tool, whole new worlds of possibility are opened up. When you create by adding rather than subtracting, more is possible. Intricate parts and parts with an intricate internal structure are lighter and stronger—and often impossible to make any other way.
Lightweight design presents obvious benefits to the automotive and aeronautical industries, but that’s not the only advantage of additive technology.
The faster you can repair or replace a part, the less downtime you experience. Additive manufacturing can be used to replicate worn parts quickly on site. Even outdated plastic or metal parts that are no longer in production can be replaced—extending the life of valuable machinery.
Want to simplify your mineral element chemical analysis, while delivering rapid high-precision results. Then Applied Spectra technology offers advantages over traditional methods, with rapid quality results.
Conventional methods like machining (cutting away materials at several angles until you have desired shape) involve a lot of wasted product. This impacts the environment and your costs.
Additive manufacturing by its very name and nature works by adding just what’s needed. Less waste and less energy equal a more green manufacturing process.
Additive manufacturing isn’t just saving your resources on that one part, either. Complex parts that used to be made up of multiple smaller parts can now be made in one. This saves your certification requirements—the fewer parts you have, the fewer certifications you require.
Other advantages of additive technology may include reduced labour and material costs. And it means you no longer need to have multiple spare parts on hand when you can build quickly and easily onsite.
Raymax Lasers goes beyond the role of a traditional supplier by offering a research service for our clients. 3D printing applications in manufacturing allows for the combination of materials to get the best of each. You also have a choice of laser solutions. We’ll help you research additive manufacturing materials and laser technology to suit your requirements.
We also support you with process development so that any laser solution we provide is rugged enough to withstand your additive manufacturing processes.
We make laser light work for you. We’ve spent over 30 years demonstrating what’s possible with lasers. In doing so, we’ve helped modernise Australian and New Zealand industries. You’ll be working with a team of physicists and factory-trained engineers—leaders in the supply of laser solutions and photonics equipment. We’re experts in material interaction research. Wherever possible, you’ll be introduced to new technology that can improve operation in ways you might not have imagined possible.
