Within a matter of weeks, R.A.M. (Rapid Advanced Manufacturing) TiDA Ltd, located in New Zealand, will grow from having two to four Selective Laser Melting machines, in order to keep pace with increased production demands.

“As many client projects are now in full scale manufacturing, two additional SLM machines will shortly be operating to meet the increased production, to allow prompt service delivery and further enhance our Research facility,” stated Tida.

“The additional machines have enabled us to expand our Alloy offering, currently printing in Ti64, SS15-5Ph and Inconcel718, with a fourth powder alloy to be confirmed.”

In addition, as one of the largest commercial SLM operators in the Asia Pacific Region, Tida can now provide established parameter testing and knowledge, and offer researched and tested design and printing suggestions to its growing base of international customers.
