Oil & Gas
The complex machinery used by the oil & gas industry is made to meet the robust performance and critical environment standards that the sector demands. Through Additive Manufacturing, complex geometry of parts, part consolidation to reduce the number of assemblies help improve part performance and reliability. It is very expensive for the oil & gas industry to experience downtimes as this may increase the annual costs by many millions of dollars. AM caters to the requirements of the oil & gas industry by enhancing supply chains and reducing lead times. Many low volume parts and critical spares that may be expensive to manufacture and stock through the traditional manufacturing route can be manufactured through the AM route.
