DDM News: Forming Pipe Assembly

As innovative partner, Melotte has significant expertise on developing solutions within the scope of Direct Digital Manufacturing.
Herewith we are presenting you such a state-of-the-art project, called “Forming Pipe Assembly” which Melotte just finished for one of its customers. It is a fantastic example to prove how Additive Manufacturing helps to reduce waste, weight and emissions during the production process.

In comparison to the conventional part equivalent we profit material savings as well as savings on production cost and time. To be continued...
