The SOLIDTEQ procedural model

All-round support with 3D printing based on the Selective Laser Melting process (SLM): this service philosophy is exemplified by the diagram of our 4-stage procedural model. Our SOLIDTEQ experts are with their customers in all phases of value creation.

1// PRODUCT PLANNING
It starts with product planning: How can I get the best for my prototyping out of the new flexibility afforded in the design phase? Which materials do I use? How do I find the suitable supporting structure that I need to minimise post-production work? How can I best ensure the quality of the 3D-printed product?

2// CAD MODEL
During a continuous design-driven manufacturing process, the experts from SOLIDTEQ support functional improvements of components and the leveraging of innovation potential. Using simulations (for example flows, forces, etc.) on the components, their function can be checked and optimized. Plus, the procedure delivers reliable indications for an optimised 3D printing process.

3// 3D PRINTING IN METAL
After conversion into a printable format, SOLIDTEQ performs the 3D print using the SLM process in significantly shorter production times. Whereas in conventional manufacturing the production of a workpiece takes several weeks, with additive manufacturing we are able to rapid prototype in as little as 48 hours. Our commitment to quality in SLM is now certified in accordance with ISO-9001:2015. By spring 2018 we also expect IATF16949:2016 certification to be complete.

4// POST-PRODUCTION WORK
After 3D printing, the workpiece is individually finished. Depending on the requirements we perform heat treatment, surface treatment or mechanical processing, for instance. Finishing processes such as painting, galvanising or coatings are also possible. For a precise analysis of the workpiece and optimal quality assurance we employ computer tomography, among other methods.
