The Best Additive Manufacturing Solutions for your Research Facility!

In an academic environment, it is imperative to continually innovate and advance research and development. Staying ahead of the curve with the latest technological advancements is crucial for research institutions. This is where additive manufacturing solutions from industry leaders such as GE Additive, AMAZEMET, and Meltio, through Multitrade 3D Systems, can be highly beneficial to academic research facilities in South Africa.

These cutting-edge solutions cater to various metal materials and offer unparalleled precision and efficiency in the production process. Through our partnerships, we offer two primary additive manufacturing technologies specifically: Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) and Directed Energy Deposition (DED).

LPBF is a 3D printing process that uses a high-powered laser to fuse fine metal powders layer by layer, ideal for producing complex geometries, prototypes, and low-volume production parts with high accuracy and repeatability. In contrast, DED is a process that deposits material on a substrate using a focused energy source, used for repairing worn or damaged parts and building up a material on a substrate in a controlled manner.

Multitrade 3D Systems offers products such as GE Additive’s MLab R and MLab 200R, Meltio’s M450, and AMAZEMET’s rePOWDER and inFURNER, providing solutions that are affordable, reliable, safe, and easy to use in most research environments. The MLab family of printers has the ability to work with reactive and non-reactive materials which can be helpful for researchers who need to create and qualify new materials with LPBF for various components or environments. Meltio’s multi-metal DED 3D printer allows users to produce dual material metal parts of very high density in a single-step process on a compact footprint. AMAZEMET’s rePOWDER offers users the ability to atomise their own powders with excellent flowability and consistency, ensuring high-quality results.

With these advanced additive manufacturing solutions, academic research facilities in South Africa can produce and research complex geometries, new alloys and materials, and multi-material components. By partnering with Multitrade 3D Systems, academic research facilities can take advantage of the latest technology and have access to technical support to ensure the best possible research solutions.

Don’t let outdated technology hold you back. Take the first step towards maximising your research potential with additive manufacturing solutions from Multitrade 3D Systems.
