Advanced Additive Manufacturing Capabilities

Additive ManufacturingAdditive manufacturing technologies are rapidly changing the ability to quickly produce concept development prototypes and design and produce innovative products.

At NN, Inc. Precision Engineered Products (PEP) Group’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence, located in Warsaw, IN, we provide additive manufacturing (AM) expertise and state-of-the art prototyping and production services utilizing Direct-Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) machines from Electro-Optical Systems (EOS).

DMLS technologies can produce parts directly from CAD data with complex geometries and new surface topologies that would be difficult or impossible to manufacture with conventional machining.

PEP Group’s DMLS machines—EOS M280 and EOS M290—are each validated and dedicated to their respective materials of 17-4SS and Ti 6-4 ELI. Dedicating machines to a single material avoids the possible mixing of materials experienced by DMLS providers who routinely use multiple types of powders in a single DMLS machine.

PEP Group’s EOS M280 and EOS M290 machines are used to provide prototypes and products for customers in a vast array of industries including orthopedics, aerospace, defense, energy, transportation and athletics.

By leveraging additive manufacturing technologies our customers can design and produce innovative products, significantly improve lead-times and reduce expensive tooling costs. Our experienced engineers utilize their additive manufacturing and industry experience in support of our customer’s product development and production projects.

State-of-the Art Facility and Lab

PEP Group’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence is a facility that was properly designed around additive manufacturing technologies and also has a large laboratory that can be used for product evaluation, saw bones testing, etc., as well as other evaluation activities in support of customer’s product development efforts.

With deep orthopedic expertise our customers can take advantage of a full suite of offerings designed to speed time-to-market and ensure device success.

The staff and services at PEP’s Additive Manufacturing Center will help customers rapidly transition from concept to prototype to functional testing to production.
