We are ready to realize your 3D-printing challenge and offer the full additive manufacturing process as well as certified post processing in-house: including surface treatment, heat treatment and non-destructive testing.

Turbocharger demonstrator highlights:

  • High design freedom
    • Strong focus on the part functionality
    • Extreme shapes: hollow structures, unique double-wall construction design, very thin walls
    • Topological optimization and possibility to integrate lattice structure
  • Higher level of performance
    • Increased air flow through the cylinders’ combustion chamber augments the engine power output
    • Effective operation of the turbocharger thanks to increased thermal insulation
    • Cost advantage
  • High functional integration
    • Integrating three single parts into one design
    • Reduction of welding to attach double-walled heat shield
    • Reduced leakage risk at the interface between the different parts
