Horstman Additive Manufacturing
Additive and reductive manufacturing techniques.
Additive and reductive manufacturing techniques are used to produce high-performance lightweight engineered solutions.
Horstman also uses additive manufacturing to produce space claim and functional interface check models for integration and maintainability checks before committing to the manufacturing of objective hardware.
Our manufacturing team advise and guide customers on the best use of the technology to produce advanced lightweight components, reducing lead times and enhancing functional performance.
- Lightweight high strength titanium materials, with optimised geometry
- Use of conventional materials to reduce weight and minimise cost
- Established supply chain management to produce additive manufactured components
- Rigorous quality inspection and control to ensure product consistency
- In-house functional and performance testing of components
- Established sub-contract testing resource and test plans to demonstrate component strength, durability and failure modes
- Established analysis techniques to ensure components suitability before committing to manufacture of hardware
- Extensive experience of rapid manufacture of high pressure oil and gas components, including pressure vessels, pistons, rams, damper components, valves, bodies, fluid transfer ports, and structural components
- Virtual training aids, product 3D fly through
