Messer Americas, Bridgewater, New Jersey, USA, a division of the Messer Group GmbH, headquartered in Bad Soden, Germany, will be showcasing three gas-based technologies for improving the repeatable quality of metal additively manufactured parts at RAPID + TCT 2019, Detroit, Michigan, USA, May 21–23.

The company offers a range of industrial and specialty gases, gas delivery and control systems as well as process consulting across the Additive Manufacturing chain including: powder making, laser metal fusion, laser metal deposition, selective laser sintering, wire-arc AM, electron beam melting, heat treating, Hot Isostatic Pressing, thermal-spray surface finishing and sintering.

Chris Ebeling, Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Messer North America, stated, “Aerospace, automotive and medical components demand reliable performance, yet moving from prototype to Additive Manufacturing at scale requires high quality repeatability to achieve successful build rates. We’re excited to meet designers and manufacturers present at Rapid to improve the quality and consistency of their materials and processes before, during and after AM.”

Messer’s gas-based technologies include solutions for before (active storage control), during (atmosphere control) and after (cryogenic cleaning or finish quality) the Additive Manufacturing process.
