Additive manufacturing has removed design barriers, enabling the creation of geometries that were previously not possible or affordable through traditional manufacturing.
This has unlocked the door to faster innovation and exploration of improved designs, while still offering the same quality through high-performance materials. The benefits of integrating additive manufacturing into conventional manufacturing are clear, but in order to realize its full potential, OEM and Tier 1 manufacturers are seeking the consult of experts to guide them on their journey of uncovering the right applications, materials, and processes.
Baker Industries is home to seven 3D printers for plastic and metal 3D printing services. Our experts will work closely with your team on everything from identifying and evaluating AM candidates to exploring design improvements and supporting production.
Our goal is to help you bring unparalleled tooling and components to the industry while transforming your business.
All Stratasys machines utilize the FDM process. This means the filament is heated to its melting point and then extruded layer-by-layer to create a 3-dimensional object.
Both EOS M290s utilize the DMLS process, which stands for Direct Metal Laser Sintering. Parts are built using layers to selectively sinter a powdered metal material into layers. Once sintered, the part will never dissolve or crumble back into a powder. 3D-printed metal parts are 99.9% as dense as regular billet materials.

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.
