Additive Manufacturing

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING 

OFFERS A HOST OF BENEFITS. 

 

Not only does this process allow manufacturers to create parts with properties similar to—or better than—traditionally-manufactured parts, but it’s much faster and less expensive as well.

From rapid prototyping in plastic to full scale production in metal, Burloak has the capability to help you with any additive manufacturing project while delivering a host of benefits, which include:

 

Limitless possibilities.

A key benefit of AM is that we can manufacture previously impossible designs in a vast array of materials with tailored mechanical properties.

Lightweight design.

We offer a range of material options—including polymers, metals and composites—that increase the strength and reliability of components while decreasing their weight.

Stronger parts.

Because of our ability to build complex geometries we can now use the same approach as we see in nature with fully organic shapes that deliver better performance.

Shorter development cycles.

We reduce your time-to-solution by drawing on our deep pool of data-led AM expertise.

Sustainable.

AM helps achieve a truly sustainable eco system around your parts lifecycle due to its efficient use of materials.

Faster production.

AM delivers a level of production flexibility never seen in traditional manufacturing which results in shorter leadtimes that translates into lower working capital in your business.

Cost effective.

AM offers a truly cost effective long term solution for the ever changing demands of business. Overall cost can be lowered with significant lifecycle savings at your bottom line.

ADDITIVE TECHNOLOGIES

To deliver high-quality and cost-efficient AM components, you need to use the right process technology—or combination of technologies. Right now, our team taps into a range of advanced tools when supporting our clients, with solutions that include: 

  • Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion
    (EBM/EB-PBF)
  • Laser–Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF/SLM)
  • High Speed Extrusion (HSE)
  • Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
  • Directed Energy Deposition (DED)
  • Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
  • Binder Jetting

As AM technology continuously evolves so, too, will our list of offerings.

 

LAB CERTIFIED MATERIALS

Unlike the traditional subtractive approach to manufacturing which combines existing components to create a final part, AM builds final parts layer-by-layer—allowing you to “print” virtually anything. Every metal part we manufacture starts out as microscopic powder. Our lab certified materials currently include:

Metals Polymers

• Titanium Ti-6Al-4V
• Titanium Ti-6Al-4V ELI
• Titanium Ti6242
• Inconel 625

• Inconel 718
• Aluminum AlSi10Mg
• Aluminum A205
• Maraging Steel MS1
• Stainless Steel 15-5   SS316L
• Cobalt Chrome

• PCTG
• PA & PA-CF
• HTN & HTN-CF
• PEEK
• 9085
• TPE Thermoplastic   Elastomer
• PA11 Polyamide 11
• PA12 polyamide 12
• PS Polystyrene

• Invar 36                   

• Invar 32-5                         

• Copper
• Hastelloy X

 

 

 

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING DEALS WITH INCREDIBLY TIGHT TOLERANCES.

AT BURLOAK WE MAKE QUALITY ASSURANCE A TOP PRIORITY.

 

Additive Manufacturing deals with incredibly tight tolerances—which is why, at Burloak, we make quality assurance a top priority. From production to documentation, process control to delivery, we go to great lengths to make sure the final product meets your specifications, drawing and requirements. We achieve this by following a stringent quality assurance process, which includes:

  • Visually inspecting components for any surface anomalies, foreign object debris and foreign object damage
  • Comparing actual parts with CAD models, through CMM and laser inspections
  • Using laboratory samples to conduct materials inspections

We’ve also investing heavily in our complete materials and metrology laboratory, which offers leading technologies including CMM, laser scanning, CT scanning, SEM, powder characterization, metallography, chemical analysis, tensile testing, hardness testing and, of course, our team of materials experts.
