Prima Additive for the energy, oil & gas sector
Discover what we do for the energy, oil & gas sector
More than anything else, downtime due to the need to change worn parts affects the costs of energy companies. Thanks to additive manufacturing, the required components can be produced on site, without having to wait for spare parts and thus minimising downtime.
Additive manufacturing, and in particular Prima Additive’s technology, meet the needs of this sector in two ways: with powder bed fusion technology to make parts only when they are needed, avoiding keeping expensive parts in stock for long periods, and with direct energy deposition technology for repairing components with high added value.
This allows for more sustainable and environmentally friendly manufacturing, using less material than machining technologies, and also allows worn components to be remanufactured and given a new lease on life without the need to buy new ones. All where it is needed, simplifying the supply chain.
Find your ideal solution
We are at your service to help you identify which of the components you currently produce are best suited to additive technology. We will support you in choosing the most suitable materials for your application and in determining the best printing strategy to create your parts.
Thanks to our solutions, you can reduce your spare parts procurement time, avoiding full warehouses or waiting for parts to arrive from far away. We will support you in the design, prototyping and production of the final parts, giving you the opportunity to experiment with new shapes and digitally customise each part according to its use.
