Build a safe and reliable additive manufacturing process
As you seek a more economical solution to manufacture complex parts that are lighter and stronger, technological advances in additive manufacturing may offer the solution you need. Commonly referred to as industrial 3D printing, additive manufacturing is an intricate process with many applications. 3D printing of metals requires the use of inert gases at every step throughout the process. While just a small part of the production, gases still play a critical role in your product quality, process stability and safety. You need a reliable and safe supply of quality gas to ensure your additive manufacturing process is uninterrupted and efficient.
