RAM3D (Rapid Advanced Manufacturing Ltd) is a market leader in additive manufacturing, focusing on selective laser melting (SLM) in titanium, stainless steel and inconel metal alloy powders.

We offer one of the very few commercial SLM facilities in the Southern Hemisphere. Currently we operate four metal laser printers and will shortly be acquiring another two and possibly four more machines this year to keep up with demand.

We’ve developed a reputation for having a deep knowledge of metal 3D printing and its application, focusing on quality control and process management. We work with our clients to improve the design of production parts and prototypes to 3D print them in a more efficient and cost effective manner.

What We Do

3D Printing:

– Materials
– Design
– Manufacturing
– Quality Control

Selective Laser Melting (SLM), 3D printing, is a type of Additive Manufacturing, which involves building pieces layer by layer. The data from the CAD 3D design is converted into a 2D layer profile. The object is built as each layer of fine metal alloy powder, approx 30-60microns thick, is then selectively melted by laser to form the solid object.
