Wilhelmsen and Ivaldi Group take another step towards digitalizing maritime supply chains with 3D printing technology

Wilhelmsen and technology partner, Ivaldi Group further deepen their collaboration with on-demand 3D printing of marine parts Wilhelmsen has partnered with Ivaldi Group to deploy an additive manufacturing facility in the Wilhelmsen Ships Service’ facilities in Singapore. The micro factory capable of on-demand production provides 3D printed parts to select partners as part of their early adopters programme in a port that sees more than 100 vessel visits a day. “Looking at the costs associated with our marine products sales, the supply chain costs are frequently at least as large as the Cost of Goods Sold.” says Kjell Andre Engen,...

Providing environmentally friendly solutions for replacement parts - Ivaldi Group is adding eco-friendly materials to its portfolio

Providing environmentally friendly solutions for replacement parts - Ivaldi Group is adding eco-friendly materials to its portfolio

By: Joanna Carbajal We are excited to announce that we are incorporating an eco-friendly solution to our catalog of materials. Sustainability is a core value of Ivaldi Group, which we know is also key for the industries we serve. Our eco-friendly materials are PLA and PETG, which are made from scrap 3D printed parts, support material, and plastic water bottles that are grinded into pellets. The pellets are then melted together and extruded into filament and wrapped in a spool. The spool is then used to print a part. By doing so, we are reusing and recycling material instead of...

By: Joanna Carbajal Now that we discussed 3D printing your pizza, airplane and your heart, let’s cover a topic you are probably more familiar with - 3D printing in the automotive industry. Let’s take a look at some examples of companies that are using additive manufacturing in the automotive industry, starting with concepts/prototypes and moving all the way into fully printed vehicles: Petr Chladek Image Source The 4ekolka is a 3D printed car that uses additive manufacturing to reduce its weight to create a more economical car. The prototype cost is only $12,000. Although it is not meant for high...

Towards a guideline for production-ready parts

Towards a guideline for production-ready parts

In January 2018 eleven companies started two seamlessly aligned Joint Innovation Programs (JIPs). The goal of these JIPs is to develop a guideline and accompanying economic model to print qualified, functional metal production (spare) parts, to be used in the Oil, Gas and Maritime industries. Equinor, BP, Rolls Royce Marine, OCAS, Ivaldi Group, TechnipFMC, Voestalpine, SLM Solutions, Additive Industries, Hiptec and the University of Strathclyde aim to have a practical guideline available by July 2019. The JIPs are managed by DNV GL and Berenschot. JIPs set up The partners in this JIP collaborate in two seamlessly aligned programs: A Guideline...

Parts on Demand Tools: Digital Capture

Parts on Demand Tools: Digital Capture

By: Joanna Carbajal To achieve “ship files - not parts,” we use photogrammetry and 3D scanners to create 3D models from images of broken and worn out parts. One of the benefits of additive manufacturing is that complex patterns or textures can be added to parts for advanced performance. There are various benefits with adding texture to maritime spare parts: Improve perceived value of a part Increase grip and functionality Obscure common visual imperfections Create unique or personalized objects Tactile safety signaling Comfort (wearables) We optimize our designed parts to decrease print time and reduce cost per part using additive...
