Additive Manufacturing for components design & manufacturing
A new approach to designing and manufacturing components. Cost and lead-time competitiveness of products is always at stake. However, traditional manufacturing processes limit designers from implementing the most efficient levers of optimization of components. In addition, the high level of nuclear quality and safety requirements impose a trusted expertise of process engineering & manufacturing as well as in-depth knowledge of materials metallurgy quality. Relying on its thorough expertise in the nuclear industry, Framatome has developed a know-how in additive manufacturing throughout the whole value chain of components design and production.Product Sheet
