Additive manufacturing of industrial equipment

Considered one of the fundamental elements of the industry of the future, additive manufacturing enables the production of technical and complex plastic parts that offer a high level of precision and quality.

In this context, John Cockerill Services offers its customers new industrial solutions to meet the needs of retrofitting or repairing equipment, as well as designing new systems.

Its experts, based in the South of France and in Luxembourg, carry out :

  • Studies, expert appraisals and audits,
  • Prototyping, pre-series and series production,
  • Modelling, 3D simulation and 3D model recovery
  • CAD
  • Redesign and optimisation
  • Maintenance

It operates in a wide range of sectors, including industry, steel, public procurement, the food industry, petrochemicals, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, the naval sector, aerospace and quarries.

To achieve this, John Cockerill Services has equipped itself with the latest generation of machines:

  • OMNI 3D 500 Lite (print volume 460x460x600)
  • FUSION 360
  • RAISE 3D Pro 3 (print volume 300x300x300)
