RAPID ADVANCED MANUFACTURING
RAM3D is the largest 3D metal printing service provider in Australasia. RAM3D have been involved in metal 3D printing since 2008. We are recognised leaders in Additive Manufacturing, focusing on Selective Laser Melting (SLM) in Titanium, Stainless Steel and Inconel metal alloy powders.
Our state of the art additive manufacturing hub based in Tauranga, New Zealand, serves a range of sectors including aerospace, defence, marine industry, food manufacturing and the industrial market; we print parts for a diversity of world-wide industries.
RAM3D have worked on high-end SLM (Selective Laser Melting) and additive manufacturing projects with clients from around the world.
From the defence sector to manufacturing, clients using this very high tech additive manufacturing process are achieving radical outcomes as well as producing less waste whilst maintaining high efficiencies.
The diversity of parts RAM3D manufactures ranges from titanium knives used by the Team NZ America’s Cup crew, to customised handlebar extensions for the New Zealand Olympics Cycling Team, as well as titanium lugs for high-end Australian custom bike maker, Bastion Cycles.
Firstly, it allows complicated and highly detailed designs to be created that wouldn’t be possible with any other technology, due to the limitations of traditional manufacturing processes. Complex design and geometry is achievable and has completely revolutionised, not only how we work, but what we can create.
Secondly, it is a rapid way of manufacturing and many world-wide companies are now using this technology to produce metal parts for production and prototyping. This layer-based manufacturing process allows build time to be quicker. Rapid prototyping allows product developers to see their design become a reality a lot swifter than ever before. It is flexible and cost competitive for the right parts.
With SLM (selective laser melting) 3D printing you get a far superior finish as well as the ability to tune the finer detail.
