Producing more efficient parts for the energy industry

In addition to new application development for stronger and more light-weight metal parts, the energy sector and its various sub-sectors (whether renewables / oil / gas / civil nuclear) are also looking to metal AM processes as a solution to repair and replace critical components.

Supply chain issues are not new, but they are deteriorating in this present decade as a result of a number of factors, including but not limited to the pandemic and geopolitical upheaval. Manufacturing on demand, closer to the point of need is a potential solution.

This is where Calibur3 stands out as a superior option. In addition, Calibur3 supports the processing of novel materials which are being developed to increase turbine temperature and therefore increase efficiency, as well as materials required to overcome challenges associated with a transition to Hydrogen fuels, such as Tungsten for shielding applications.
