About Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing is a versatile manufacturing method that spans a variety of materials.  These materials include plastics, metals, and resins.

Laser systems are key to 3D printing and direct digital manufacturing processes requiring layer by layer fusing of a powder or resin. These unique part builds offer design opportunities not available through traditional manufacturing methods. These range from rapid prototyping and working models to low volume production of end-use parts. The rapid turnaround of additive manufacturing method can allow faster design iteration. In addition, it can shorten time to market. Users can respond quickly to changing market demands or industry regulations.

This versatile manufacturing method spans a variety of materials—plastics, metals, and resins—designed to serve a range of industries, including:

  • Engineering
  • Manufacturing
  • Medical/Dental
  • Electronics
  • Aerospace
  • Chemical
  • Semiconductor
  • Jewelry/Watchmaking

Recognizing the precision and speed required by these industries, Novanta offers OEMs and system architects a broad range of laser beam delivery systems, beam steering components, and CO2 laser sources, including:

  • Fast, high-precision scan heads for SLA and SLS systems
  • High performance, reliable CO<sub>2</sub> lasers spanning a range of power levels and wavelengths for SLS polymers
  • Expertly balanced sub-systems combine precision 3D scan heads and reliable CO2 lasers with varied power levels and wavelengths for SLS of polymers

Precision, speed, and flexibility are the hall mark attributes of Novanta’s laser processing sub-systems and components for additive manufacturing.
