Mobius is active in the following sectors:

3D Print Platforms

Small Series & Prototypes

Mobius 3D Technologies works together with various 3D IT platforms. If there is free space on a build-plate next to parts of direct customers, parts can be printed that have been requested via these IT platforms. However, this method is not our preference, precisely because the IT printing platforms seldom allow you to communicate directly. One on one contact with the customer gives the customer the opportunity to get the most out of the advantages of 3D printing. That is why we prefer to work together with the customer in an open and transparent communication structure. By sharing our knowledge, we can achieve the greatest benefit for the customer.

Medical

Medical Implants & Tools

In collaboration with University Medical Centers, Mobius 3D technologies works on instruments and medical applications that are manufactured entirely according to ISO 13485 and used in Maxillofacial surgery and orthopaedics.

Motorsport

High-Speed Deliveries

For one of the leading F1 teams, we produce products from Aluminium and Titanium. They choose for Mobius 3D Technologies because we respond totally to their needs, namely speed. We are able to deliver ultra-light weight components with short lead times. To this end, we have set up a 'fast track' in our factory where we can (re) design products within a few days, 3D printing, stress-free annealing and finish machining so that the customer can see new improvements between two F1 races.

Aerospace

Inboard & Outboard Parts

Mobius 3D Technologies supports international manufacturers with further development of the concept phase into the practical feasibility of components. In close consultation we assess how the best of 3D printing and machining can be combined, while retaining the functionality of the design, within the customers budget. In addition to sharing knowledge and experience, Mobius 3D Technologies prints the products and finishes the printed components with one of our many 5-axis milling machines.

Yachting

Luxury Design One-offs

Mobius 3D Technologies develops 3D printed stainless steel parts for exclusive high-performance yachts. It is important that the components are lightweight, have a high gloss finish and a different design can be used for each project.

Due to the relatively low start-up costs of Additive Manufacturing, the customer can position himself competitively in the market and also offer a unique product.

Automotive

Energy Efficient Design 

Additive manufacturing offers a perfect solution for weight optimization, energy-absorbing and energy-efficient designs. These properties give the possibility to meet the increase in performance requirements, without the limitations of traditional production techniques. Mobius 3D Technologies offers car manufacturers and suppliers the possibility to integrate these complex functionalities in an economically efficient way.

Energy

Oil & Gas, Wind & Hydro power

Parts made of Inconel 625 and 718 usually have a very high cost price and long delivery times with traditional manufacturing methods. Mobius 3D technologies offers companies in the oil & gas industry the opportunity to obtain small series of products from Inconel 625 & Inconel 718 economically, with very short delivery times, including the required certification. Likewise, we offer innovative energy companies the opportunity to quickly produce prototypes with us for designs that were never possible before.

Food & Dairy

Advanced & Hygienic Parts

Mobius 3D Technologies works with various companies in the food industry for which we print various complex parts and entire systems, according to ISO 9001, from meat processing machines, fruit-peeling machines, dairy machines to packaging machines.

Tooling

High-Quality Materials

Mobius 3D Technologies cooperates with various toolmakers for 3D metal printing of complex tools and systems with hardened steels. Mobius 3D Technologies has reliable partners in the field of machine finishing such as turning, milling and grinding.

Frequently asked questions

Which metals do you offer with 3D-printing?

We produce in Aluminium (AlSi10Mg (B)), Stainless Steel (316L, 1.4404), Titanium (TiAl6V4, grade 23) and Inconel (ASTM B446-03 UNS N06625). We are always looking for new opportunities with other materials and we are open for suggestions. If sufficient demand presents itself, we will expand our assortment. Please contact us if the desired material is not in our assortment yet.

Do printed products have the same material properties when compared to casted alloys?

Yes. The properties of our materials are comparable with the properties of similar products from casting alloys. In order to achieve the right quality, we have a worldclass quality management system with which we constantly monitor the production process. In addition, we continuously carry out research, during which we test the unlimited possibilities of the 'Additive Manufacturing' technique. Do you want more information about the material properties? Please contact us for a free visit from one of our engineers.

What are the maximum printable dimensions?

Our maximum 3d-print build volume is 245 x 245 x 280 mm. Sometimes larger products fit in to the build volume by use of carefully placed sections of the product. Even if you have larger products, please contact us. We do like to take on new challenges and look for a solution within our available network.

What tolerances can be achieved with 3D-printing?

We can print within +/- 0.1 mm accuracy when a large part of the build-plate is used for one product. For smaller products the accuracy is +/- 0.1 to +/- 0.05 mm. With CNC post-processing, we can achieve more accurate results up to +/- 0.005 mm.

What is the delivery time for 3D-printing?

The delivery time for printed products is usually less than 3 weeks. We also have a fast track for products that require shorter delivery times (<1 week).

When is 3D-printing cost competitive compared to alternative techniques?

Additive manufacturing offers many advantages. With this technique complex forms can be produced, material usage is minimal and production is executed without complicated tools, casting moulds or machining programs. In addition, several complex parts can be integrated into one part which needs an assembly with traditional manufacturing techniques. In case your product has complex forms for machining, or is made from a raw material with a high cost price, requires a rapid delivery time or a combination of these factors, 3D printing is certainly an economical production technique! Please do the test here!

How is the cost price determined?

The cost price is determined by, amongst other things, the time required for the work preparation for your specific request. In addition, the cost price is mainly determined by the print height. The higher the product, the more layers the machine needs to process. However, due to our knowledge and experience, we can combine many products on one build-plate and keep the costs as low as possible.

Material consumption is extremely efficient and the non-fused printing powder is recycled. Precious materials can therefore be offered at a competitive price.

Post machining (finishing) is dependent on the requirements. Is there a special surface treatment required after printing? We can offer all sorts of surface treatments, that is part of our capabilities.
