What Happens After Printing

Getting the Final Details Right

After 3D in Metal has printed metal parts fast, in the quantities, sizes and materials required, we need to ensure the final details are right. One needs to look at the fine print, so to speak. The crucial work that happens after parts are printed is one of the most neglected aspects of metal additive manufacturing. If not taken into account, what the customer thinks they will receive and what they actually get can look very different both in properties and aesthetically.

Take Advantage Of The Best In Traditional Manufacturing

Metal Additive Manufacturing can live up to its potential by coming alongside tried and true manufacturing processes. By providing in-house machining, heat treating, surface treatment, joining and assembly services, 3D in Metal can deliver parts per customer requirements. There is no need to require metal 3D printers to be slow, small and expensive where traditional manufacturing can excel at being fast, reliable and cost effective.
