Remet, a Polish metal construction producer, has opened a €2.eight million ($three.1 million) metallic 3D printing laboratory in Stalowa Wola with 3D Lab, a Warsaw-based 3D printing service bureau. 3D Lab helped to equip the power with 3D printers from main OEM 3D Methods, as nicely its personal ATO Lab metallic powder atomizer.
Remet opened the laboratory because it sought to implement additive manufacturing into its manufacturing workflow. The corporate can also be trying to full analysis into 3D printing supplies and manufacturing processes. The ability will subsequently home a complete vary of gadgets and machines supporting each analysis and manufacturing for additive manufacturing. Remet’s 3D printing laboratory additionally represents the primary set up of 3D Lab’s ATO Lab machine.

Established in 2004, Remet manufactures metal buildings for the oil and fuel, energy era and offshore industries. The corporate produces complicated assemblies to assist corporations extract oil and fuel from the underside of the seas and oceans. It has served giant corporations inside these industries, reminiscent of BP, Statoil, GE Oil & Gasoline, and ExxonMobil.
Presently, Remet manufactures its assemblies utilizing CNC machining processes. Nonetheless, it has launched a brand new division, titled Remet Steel Labs, devoted to implementing complete tasks within the area of additive manufacturing for automotive, aerospace and house industries. The 3D printing laboratory will probably be headed by the brand new department.
In Remet Steel Labs’ new facility, the corporate’s 3D Methods machines embrace the DMP Flex 350 for metallic 3D printing, and the Determine four SLA 3D printer for plastic. Each had been put in by 3D Lab, an official 3D Methods reseller.
Remet intends to make the most of the DMP Flex 350 at the side of the ATO Lab atomizer, a machine for producing metallic powders utilizing ultrasonic atomization expertise. The ATO Lab system is designed for researchers, and is able to a number of hundred grams of throughput. Each the DMP Flex 350 and ATO Lab techniques will probably be utilized by Remet to check and produce a variety of powdered metallic alloys with totally different chemical compositions and fractions, with the intention of making extremely versatile prototypes.
The DMP Flex 350 metallic 3D printer, a Direct Steel Laser Sintering (DMLS) system, was launched by 3D Methods in late 2018 as a successor to the ProX DMP 320. It comes geared up with a module and software program permitting customers to regulate the laser and its energy. This can allow Remet to fabricate components with totally different properties utilizing the metallic powders created with the ATO Lab atomizer.
The Determine four will probably be used for including extra parts to metallic 3D printed merchandise, in addition to testing concepts throughout early levels and pre-processing. The 3D printing laboratory can even embrace scanning microscopes, an ultrasonic display for the separation of powders, a warmth remedy furnace, a laser welding station and a system for machining printed particulars.

The ATO Lab atomizer
Previously generally known as ATO One, 3D Lab first launched its metallic powder atomizer at Formnext 2017 as an idea machine. It was dubbed as an “office-friendly” system and was created in response to rising demand for metallic powders of various sizes from SMEs, powder producers, and scientific establishments.
A yr later at Formnext 2018, 3D Lab launched its ATO Lab machine, presenting the ultimate and up to date model of its atomizer to the general public.
