TWI Ltd, Cambridge, UK, one of the world’s leading independent research and technology organisations, has been working in metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology development for the last 25 years. During this time it has gained a detailed understanding of every aspect of its use, from design, process selection and commercial implementation to testing, validation and certification.
To better showcase the full extent of services the company provides in this area, TWI has launched a dedicated AM website. The new site provides an overview of AM technology and offers a number of interesting case studies discussing various research and development projects undertaken.
TWI claims to have worked with a diverse range of organisations and industry sectors including aerospace, oil and gas, defence, power and medical, identifying ways for them to exploit the opportunities AM presents and helping them integrate AM into their products. It is also supporting standards organisations and global companies to expedite the industrial exploitation and adoption of AM technologies and to help businesses fully realise the benefits offered by AM.
The AM team is supported by the rest of TWI’s engineering capability, with hundreds of scientists, engineers and researchers specialising in every facet of materials joining, structural integrity and materials science.
