Rapid-Manufacturing means to manufacture pieces of end-use or functional application directly from a 3D CAD through manufacturing technologies by laser sintering (Selective Laser Sintering). There are more and more industries using this technology. which is especially interesting for the aeronautical industry and, essentially, for small productions, as it avoids investment in tooling at a fixed cost of production. In the Laboratories of the Materials and Processes Area of CATEC, we have Rapid Manufacturing systems such as HiQ3D and SLM250, to design and manufacture polyamide base and metal components, respectively. For further information, contact materiales@catec.aero and ask for a visit to our laboratories.
