Prima Additive, a forerunner in additive manufacturing, is revolutionizing the industry with its focus on Directed Energy Deposition (DED) technologies, particularly Laser Metal Deposition and High-Speed Laser Cladding. This advanced technology employs a laser beam to deposit materials on workpieces, resulting in coatings that adhere at a metallurgical level.

Known for its precision, High-Speed Laser Cladding excels in creating durable coatings with enhanced mechanical properties, such as increased hardness, corrosion resistance, and wear resistance. This technology is rapidly becoming the gold standard for industries seeking superior coating solutions. Its applications extend across various industrial needs, ensuring high performance and strength.

A significant aspect of this technology is its contribution to environmental conservation, especially in brake disc coating. Statistics reveal that 21% of particulate emissions from combustion vehicles originate from brakes. By coating brake discs, Prima Additive aims to significantly reduce these emissions, aligning with stringent environmental standards like the impending Euro 7 norms.
