Baker Industries is an industry-leading provider of design, manufacturing, and quality assurance services for aerospace, automotive, defense, space, and A/E/C customers. We've built a reputation for quality, precision, and efficiency.
The power of additive manufacturing is not limited to the use of plastics- Baker is home to printers for both metals and thermoplastics. Working with these high-performance materials, designers can now explore shapes and designs never before possible or affordable through traditional means. This allows for expanded opportunities for innovation as well as improved design quality at a fraction of the cost!
Leveraging Lincoln Electric's pioneer large-scale metal additive manufacturing capabilities, we can now help our customers accomplish increased reliability, expanded design freedom, lower inventory costs, less material waste, parts consolidation, and reduced manufacturing operations by making the shift to large-scale 3D printing- all while maintaining the standard of quality, service, and reliability that Baker has long been recognized for.
The minds behind Baker Design Group have years of experience in design and engineering working for some of the largest OEM and Tier-1 suppliers in automotive, aerospace, defense, and space. Our experts do more than just design and engineering - they create innovative and valuable solutions by combining their unmatched innovation with traditional engineering expertise.
Fabrication and Build is where our large projects take shape. From raw materials, we craft innovative and durable solutions that suit the needs of all clients - from small jobs to custom-made, complex fixtures and tools for high production runs. In our fabrication department, quality and durability take top priority; all projects are examined by one of our AWS Certified Welding Inspectors before delivery.
Baker Industries has a 65,000 sq. ft. facility dedicated to our machining operations and home to some of the industry's most powerful, impressive machines. Plant 1 houses over 30 versatile CNC machines, including the EMCO Mecof Powermill, the largest CNC machine in North America.
The Baker team offers a wealth of prototype development knowledge and experience to help you get your products efficiently and affordably. Our experts are here to take care of all your prototyping needs - from simple to complex, one to many.
Quality is our commitment; ISO is our culture. It’s not the certificates hanging on the wall that matter to us, it’s what goes into earning them that counts. We are process-driven. Continuous improvement is our heartbeat.
We have a reputation for precision, quality and performance in the manufacturing of fixtures and tooling of all types. That reputation has been built through experience gained over many projects, customers, and applications.
Our team is driven by passion and a steadfast commitment to providing unmatched quality, efficiency, and overall customer experience to every step of every project.
We’re creative, sharp, and dedicated to figuring out how we can make every project better – more ergonomic, lighter, more precise, and faster.
Our team works hard to be available for our customers whenever—and wherever—they're needed.
Our foundation serving the needs of OEM and Tier-1 manufacturers enables us to satisfy virtually any need.
Wherever possible, we offer valuable opportunities for cost reduction and process improvement.
We implement the latest tech, equipment, and processes to take our craftsmanship to the next level.
Gain efficiency in your operations by letting Lincoln Electric Additive Solutions manufacture your long lead time parts.
By additively manufacturing the facesheets for large aerospace composite mold tools, delivery times for completed tools can be shortened by up to several weeks – potentially reducing delivery times of entire tools by as much as 60 percent.
Lincoln Electric Additive Solutions facilities are capable of providing complete, finished tools, including:
New tooling is often a bottleneck in getting new manufacturing operations up and running on time, particularly as engineers often need to accommodate last minute design changes. Additive manufacturing can eliminate the tooling bottleneck by significantly shortening the delivery lead time.
Get functional, large-scale prototype parts in days to weeks, not weeks to months.
Large castings and forgings can easily take several months to receive. Explore whether Lincoln Electric Additive Solutions can shave your lead times by several weeks.

With large format wire-based metal additive manufacturing, the part is manipulated while depositing. Advanced software is critical to address complex path planning and coordinated motion between the robot and the positioner.
We have developed height sensing and adaptive feedback software to maintain tight customer-specified tolerances.
Complex part printing can be achieved using advanced robots collaborating with positioners and motion control software.
Full control over the wire path for each layer allows for optimal process parameters and material deposition.
