Industrial 3D printing

Industrial 3D printing is today enabling a whole new approach to design. Innovative results are produced by way of parts not previously possible with existing technologies, offering new options for the planning, design and construction of your components. As a leader in plastics processing technology, Röchling was involved at the early stages with additive layer manufacturing processes with which three-dimensional (3D) parts can be produced directly.

Advantages and Areas of Application

Your advantages

The additive layer manufacturing process offers entirely new ways for you to design, construct and make your components. Small batches and prototypes could only be produced with previously available technologies in a very costly process, frequently involving long development times. Design options were also limited in many cases due to technical feasibility. Through the use of selective laser sintering, Röchling can offer you the rapid manufacture of new components for small batches and prototypes as well as the benefit of technical and economic advantages.
