3D titanium stamping

NEXTEAM GROUP is a pioneer in the implementation of a revolutionary manufacturing technique known as Rapid Additive Forging, developed by Prodways Group after several years of R&D.

This process allows large-size titanium parts to be manufactured by 3D stamping, depositing molten metal wire. RAF technology makes it possible to obtain a metallurgical comparable to forging techniques, while reducing costs supply times.

NEXTEAM GROUP has already purchased the first Prodways RAF machine, for a qualification phase under actual working conditions. That led to the first series being produced in May 2019 onwards. Several aircraft and motor-vehicle manufacturers have already ordered parts, thus showing the importance of this technology.
