3D Printing Methods

Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM)

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

Stereolithography (SLA)

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM)

Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM)

Melts metal powder with a laser to create fully dense metal parts for high-performance oil and gas applications.

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

Fuses together polymer or metal powder particles with a high-powered laser. Ideal for complex geometries and small batch production.

Stereolithography (SLA)

Solidifies layers of liquid resin with a UV laser. Allows for high precision printing of intricate parts with smooth surface finishes.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

Extrudes polymer and thermoplastic material to produce durable, functional parts with strong interlayer adhesion.

Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM)

Deposits layers of metal wire that is melted by an electric arc to create robust and large-scale parts.

Frequently
Asked Questions

What is additive manufacturing?

Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is an advanced manufacturing process that creates three-dimensional objects layer by layer.

It offers the ability to produce intricate, customized, and complex parts with high precision, more efficient material usage, and reduced energy consumption compared to conventional manufacturing methods.

How much lead time does it usually take to produce a functional spare part?

The full production and post-processing time depends on the size, material, and complexity of the needed part.

For example, a 50mm stainless steel cube will take less than an hour of printing time, not including the required post-processing steps. And a stainless steel closed impeller with an outer diameter (OD) of 150mm can be completely manufactured within 3 to 4 days.

What are the material options for manufacturing?

Kindly refer to the Materials section of this page. For unlisted materials, you may send a message to our team.

How reliable are the 3D printed parts compared to conventionally manufactured ones?

3D printed metal parts display the same characteristics that conventionally manufactured parts have. In most cases, parts produced through metal additive manufacturing prove to be stronger than conventional counterparts.

With Immensa’s DNV certifications for additive manufacturing, our 3D printed spare parts are produced to the highest industry standards to ensure reliability, even for the most demanding applications.

How do you ensure the quality, integrity, and performance of 3D printed spare parts, including the internal features?

Immensa is DNV-certified for additive manufacturing and conducts in-house testing for dimensional accuracies and other NDTs (non-destructive tests). Test coupons are also printed alongside each spare part to validate material properties.
