Consider Tele-manufacturing

Tele-manufacturing may have sounded like sci-fi in the recent past, but it’s now an ideal solution for challenges like dangerous repairs and an aging workforce. Want to explore tele-manufacturing as an option for improving the safety, efficiency, and competitiveness of your production and maintenance processes? You’ve come to the right place. EWI has been going all-in on tele-manufacturing since 2019.

Innovations in DED

Direct energy deposition (DED) is a type of additive manufacturing known for speed and precision. Heavy manufacturers can use DED to work on large parts that would never fit in a powder bed or other system. Two types of arc DED are especially appealing in this sector: plasma arc and gas tungsten arc (GTA) DED. EWI can help you validate and apply the right process for your prototyping, repair, and fabrication needs.
