3D Printing For The Energy Sector

Prototal UK is emerging as a transformative figure in the energy industry. 

With our ability to speed up design and production times, and lower cost and weight of parts, our expertise in mechanical industries is ultimately driving innovation and cost-effective solutions within the industry.

As the energy sector seeks out new opportunities for effective material use, stronger industrial parts, and simpler innovation, 3D printing stands apart as the best choice for the 21st century. 

Additive manufacturing offers revelations for any industry willing to make the change. Prototal UK has the capabilities to offer revolutionary developments in design, production, and maintenance for the energy sector. AM technologies allows for greater design freedom, prototyping and customisation speedruns, enhanced performance and use of materials, shorter time to market, as well as cost and weight reduction.

These are all opportunities that would benefit the energy sector. With polymer 3D printing, customised parts can be created to complex geometric designs and to fulfil rigorous manual duties. This saves on material use and weight, reduces wear and tear, and optimises performance in the presence of tough physical and chemical conditions. Pump components, compressor valve plates, and propellers and turbines are just some of the parts that can be made with AM today.

On-demand manufacturing with 3D printers can allow operators to craft replacement parts immediately, reducing downtime and thus saving costs. Equipment can become cheaper, safer, and individualised to specific workers and their needs. Polymer 3D printing also means less material waste during production, helping to reduce the environmental impact of the industry. 

By using PEEK and Carbon PEEK, our products have a high tensile strength, great corrosion resistance, and insulating properties, making them perfect for use in the energy sector. Our nylon polymers, similarly, are ideal for the energy industry, with lightweight properties, great wear resistance, and impressive strength against compression and friction. With our extensive practical experience of additive manufacturing and its uses in various sectors, as well as our finishing expertise, we are leaders in revolutionising established industries with polymer printing.

Prototal UK is already highly adept in multiple industrial sectors, holding an aerospace EN 9100:2018 certificate and one of the few AM providers to be awarded an ISO 13485 certificate in the medical industry. These mean that we’re committed to international standards of quality and safety. This recognised dedication to high-quality services means we’re well trusted in our ability to provide production components in both the UK and internationally.
