Wall Colmonoy installs 3D printing center in UK
Wall Colmonoy has opened a center in the UK that it says offers fast metal 3D printing of small to medium parts.
The center, located at its Precision Components plant in Pontardawe, Wales, features binder-jet technology from Desktop Metal, with a build envelope of 8L. Initial production runs will use 17-4PH stainless steel, with Colmonoy nickel and Wallex cobalt alloys to follow.
‘Colmonoy will be able to collaborate with customers by developing additive manufacturing (AM) prototype or parts components, moving theoretical designs into proven applications without the restrictions of conventional subtractive manufacturing techniques,’ a press release said.
Wall Colmonoy says that it also intends to use the printer to produce new parts for its atomization plant in the same location.
