The concept of additive manufacturing often conjures up images of sintering powder to create small parts. RAMLAB, based out of Rotterdam, Netherlands, is scaling up that imagery significantly by using wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) to 3D print metal ship propellers. The first propeller made using this approach was created last year thanks to a consortium that includes RAMLAB, Damen Shipyards Group, Promarin, Autodesk and Bureau Veritas.
“We focused on WAAM technology because we ar…
