G P Tromans Associates offers a comprehensive range of services on a full consultancy basis for large and small companies that utilise, or wish to embrace, additive manufacturing technologies for any application. There are many industrial applications for additive manufacturing technologies which include rapid prototyping for concept models or form, fit, function and technical prototypes; manufacture of fixtures and assembly aids; metal casting patterns; resin moulding master patterns; moulds and dies; custom and limited edition models as well as custom medical devices and implants. Furthermore, a number of companies from a wide range of industries are now employing these processes to manufacture directly from the machine. These are typically components that have previously been either impossible or very difficult to manufacture owing to geometrical restraints, or they have been too cost prohibitive to manufacture using traditional methods.
From the first on-site meeting, the key is understanding a client’s particular requirements and researching the most up to date processes and technologies for their particular application(s).
Services include, but are not limited to:
- Full investigation and study into client requirements.
- Tailored reports, in various forms, to feedback results and proposals.
- Feasibility study to prove the validity of the process(es) in regard to the applications.
- Full project management.
- Technology implementation.
- Application development.
- Tutorials and Workshops.
The addition of new technologies to any company can often prove to be a daunting task, especially when they will have a major impact as is the case with additive technologies. Graham has set-up and helped implement these technologies in a number of new facilities and can ensure that the process runs smoothly and easily, and, more importantly, that the technologies actually match the requirements of the client.
