First CE-certified 3D printed part
Wärtsilä is a leading global supplier of intelligent technologies and system solutions for the shipping and energy markets, with a product portfolio ranging from motors to drive and renewable energies. The tool made of onyx with carbon continuous fiber has undergone various tests and inspections, resulting in the first 3D-printed, CE-certified hoisting tool.
“The best thing about 3D printing is that any design can be printed anywhere and at any time, even on the cargo ships that Wärtsilä helps maintain and service.”
Juho Raukola, additive manufacturing manager
