Engineering Support

Protean Advanced provides a comprehensive design service for AM components. Combining systems engineering with a wholly independent approach, we help our customers to design advanced products that exploit the benefits of AM technology.

Design for AM

To fully exploit the benefits of Additive Manufacturing, it is essential to follow Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) principles. Protean Advanced has a network of experienced DfAM engineers available to support you to develop or optimise component designs. Working with your business, our consultants can design components that take full advantage of AM, considering both performance and economics. 

"When properly implemented, Design for AM will improve the performance of the component, as well as reduce cost and leadtime. "

Production Scale-Up

Bringing AM products to market can be a challenging process, especially for organisations who are new to Additive Manufacturing or who are working for demanding industries such as aerospace or defence. From designing for production to developing robust supply chains to planning the qualification of components, our consultants can guide you though the production scale-up process. Their experience will reduce the risks associated with developing new products whilst up-skilling your in-house teams. 

"Our consultants can help you to avoid the common pitfalls that many companies encounter when bringing new products to market"
