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 over 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 technology, it is also possible to reduce the weight of components to improve the performance of the vessel, as well as make parts subject to wear from high-performance materials to extend their service life as much as possible.

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


Whether you need to repair or create new parts, we offer you the ideal solution to maximise their performance.


We listen

We advise you on the technology best suited to your actual need



Every Prima Additive machine works to provide solutions that traditional industry cannot offer.



Find your ideal solution

Through our two main technologies, Powder Bed Fusion and Direct Energy Deposition, we are able to 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? Thanks to the high level of customisable options, complex geometries functional to their use can be produced while maintaining or even improving the mechanical performance of the part.

In addition, the option of repairing metal parts makes it possible to fit fully into the Circular Economy, saving resources, time and money by not having to produce new components, but regenerating what is already there.

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