3D Metal Printing

 

SOLUTIONS CENTER for

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

in hydraulics

 

 

From traditional hydraulics

 

 

to metal 3D printing

 

75 % weight reduction

1/2 size dimension

Aidro has introduced Additive Manufacturing in Hydraulics to create a new generation of hydraulic solutions and to overcome the limits of traditional manufactured components. This new technology allows fast lead time and better performances thanks to the optimization of the internal channels.

 

Using a new engineering approach, Aidro can design and print :

-> customization solutions with complex

geometries

-> lightweight and compact hydraulic

products

-> multiple parts into one

-> rapid prototypes

 

On the basis of 35+ years of experience in hydraulics, Aidro considers the additive manufacturing a good way to the future developments.

 

Hydraulic manifold high pressure

 

  •  Lightweight solutions (up to 75% weight reduction)
  •  Good material properties (similar to metal bars)
  •  High pressure resistance (700 bar)
  •  Optimized performances, thanks to curved channels and no more 90 degrees intersection angles

Hydraulic Valve Block

 

  •  Weight reduction
  •  Space saving
  •  High customization
  •  Freedom to design & complex geometries

Heat Exchanger

 

  •  High performances in small size
  •  Possibility to combine multiple parts into one
  •  Aluminum and Stainless Steel materials availability

WHAT WE DO

 

DESIGN

new hydraulic products with complex geometries and

re-design traditional hydraulic parts to reduce weight,

save space, consolidate multiple pieces into one.

FEM analysis and stress test.

PRODUCTION

with metal 3D printer machine (DMLS technology), wide

range of high quality metals such as Stainless Steel

(AISI316L), Aluminium (Alsi10Mg), Inconel (718),

Maraging steel.

TESTING

on material properties, pressure resistance,

mechanical and micro-structural properties, functional

characteristics.

MEASUREMENT

dimensional control by 3D scan and reverse engineering.

CNC FINISHING

with our flexible vertical machining center, we provide the machining of cavities, surfaces and parts of the 3D printed products that require a finishing.

 

POST TREATMENTS

heat treating of 3D metal printed parts, surface finishing.
