  • Giving flexibility with experienced and qualified resources during peak times and off peak times.
  • Giving local support from multiple locations, including Best (Netherlands) and Suzhou (China).
  • Being part of Philips’ Quality Management System (QMS) Support.

Additive Manufacturing Design for Wärtsilä

Wärtsilä was willing to redesign their valve springs press tools by having a lighter structure made by additive manufacturing. The initial “standard design” was machined and welded, but there were fears that it would not withstand the spring forces of over 30 kN generated during use. Wärtsilä involved Etteplan to co-design and rethink the manually operated pressing tool for mounting cylinder head valves.
