Prima Additive for the naval sector

Find out what we do for the naval sector

One of the advantages of metal 3D printing for the shipbuilding industry is the ability to produce spare parts in a short time.

Similarly, components used in the naval sector often have textures to improve grip of the part in situations of high humidity, as well as giving the end user a better quality feel. Achieving this type of texture with additive manufacturing becomes incredibly simple and requires no additional effort.

Thanks to additive manufacturing, it is also possible to reduce the weight of components to improve the boat's performance, as well as to make components subject to wear with high-performance materials that extend their life cycle as much as possible.

In addition, with Direct Energy Deposition technology, it is possible to repair high-value metal parts typical of ship propulsion systems, such as propellers. In fact, new material can be brought to damaged or worn propellers to restore them to their original shape.


Lightweight and Durable Components

Metal AM produces parts that reduce the overall weight of vessels while maintaining structural integrity, enhancing efficiency and performance.


Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing of Spare Parts

Enables on-demand production of parts, reducing inventory and logistics challenges in the shipbuilding industry.

Innovative Designs for Enhanced Performance

Allows for the exploration of novel designs for propellers, hull components, and other critical ship parts, improving speed, efficiency, and stability.


Find your ideal solution

Through our two main technologies, Powder Bed Fusion and Direct Energy Deposition, we can guide you towards the best possible solution to achieve your goal.

As a result, metal 3D printing can give a decisive boost to naval production.

How? Because of the high customization possibilities that enable the production of complex functionalized geometries for their use while maintaining, if not improving, the mechanical performance of the part.

In addition, the ability to repair metal parts allows you to fully fit into the Circular Economy paradigm, saving resources, time, and money by not producing new components but remanufacturing existing ones.

The speed and ease of use of our machines also allows you to get the part you want without having to wait for the ordering and shipping times you are normally used to, independently managing the process exactly as you designed it.
