Victorian SMEs Collaborate On Additive Manufacturing

The DMTC Additive Manufacturing Benchmarking project has brought together a number of Victorian based SMEs to benchmark and develop additive manufacturing capability. The project is supported by the Victorian Governments Manufacturing Productivity Network Grant and aims to raise the overall capability of participating companies through research and collaboration.

Additive manufacturing is a very useful process for creating components with complex geometries. However limitations in machine finishing capabilities must still be considered when designing such components. Bauer Engineering is a participating SME and through the project has developed a new capability to finish machine parts created using additive manufacturing. Bauer Engineering’s participation in this collaboration has led to the company securing a new contract to finish machine components for a local Victorian business.
