Metal additive  manufacturing

The laser industrial revolution and metal additive manufacturing at your service!

Additive manufacturing, also called selective laser melting (SLM) or metal powder sintering, is a manufacturing process by adding successive layers of material. By melting these layers of metallic powder, we obtain a 3D impression of the object. We can therefore create a part directly from its 3D digital representation; it is a revolution that pushes the limits of creativity!

Thanks to the use of metal additive manufacturing, we can even produce very complex parts, while reducing the price and production times and increasing quality compared to industrial manufacturing. You will no longer have long delays when obtaining the prototyping of your parts.

The flexibility of our additive manufacturing machines allows us to produce a large number of very complex parts fully adapted to the particular needs of our customers. Our powders are vacuum packed, protected against corrosion and insulated from each other. We can manufacture from steel, aluminium, nickel-chrome or titanium base powder.

Laser Welding

Laser welding is a welding technique that makes it possible to assemble metal parts using a YAG laser.

The YAG (yttrium aluminium garnet laser) is a type of laser using the YAG crystal as an amplifier medium to create a laser beam capable of working on solid materials. There are many applications, both in the medical field and in industry.

Our YAG laser welding machines make precision welding on complex 2D or 3D shapes of high quality and with great precision possible. The laser beam makes narrow, deep and fast welding possible. The parts thus obtained have no excess thickness and are tested to meet the predefined specifications.

Following laser welding, we also carry out the necessary additional operations such as leakage checks or strength tests, as well as all metallographic analyses.

Laser Cutting and drilling

Our laser machines can perform various important tasks: cutting, drilling and marking.

Laser cutting and drilling involves cutting or drilling material with a laser concentrated on a very small surface. The laser cuts we make with our specialised machines are applied to different types of materials, with complex contours that require precise, fast and resistance-free processing. Our method has many advantages, the main one being the machining, without deformation, on parts up to 3 mm thick.

Unlike other technologies, Saturne Technology's laser cutting machines make it possible to produce various shapes. As a result, they can be adapted to both individual laser machining and serial laser machining.

In addition to cutting and drilling, we also perform laser marking. Marking is the numbering of materials with a laser beam. Laser marking is more resistant, more accurate and faster than traditional marking.

With our laser machines, we can drill many materials such as metal, aluminium, steel, sheet metal, plastic, leather, ceramics and many others.

Laser Cladding

Laser cladding is a technology that allows different alloys to be deposited on the surface of mechanical or casting parts.

Fused layers improve the resistance of parts against abrasion, friction, pressure, shock, corrosion or simply for aesthetic reasons. Laser cladding therefore increases the life of the parts and in turn their profitability.

The deposits are made with a head coaxial to the laser beam, allowing fine or large deposits, with a perfect connection to the base material and without stress.

Laboratory expertise

The notion of laboratory and expertise used by Saturne Technology refers to the control and quality of the manufactured parts.

The term quality is an integral part of the company's values. Quality and control are part and parcel of the modern technologies used by Saturne Technology in demanding fields of application such as aeronautics, rail and medical. They are of central importance here. In order to qualify and control our special manufacturing processes (and ultimately the products delivered to our customers), Saturne Technology relies on extensive in-house laboratory resources and expertise. From the granulometric and spectrometric control of metal powders to the dimensional, metallurgical and mechanical characteristics of the finished products, measurements and tests are carried out in complete autonomy, giving our organisation a high degree of reactivity and flexibility.
Precision Engineering
According to the general definition on the Internet, precision engineering includes "the manufacturing of parts with low tolerances". Saturne Technology uses its production resources to produce parts that are complex in terms of size, criteria or dimensional tolerance. However, precision engineering relies on several trades at the company.
Design Office

A design office carries out technical expertise in order to analyse the customer's needs.

Saturne Technology is developing a design office based on several characteristics: the customer's needs, the feasibility of the customer's specifications, and whether the company has the necessary capacity and know-how to meet the buyer's requirements. We employ the notion of "active proposing", i.e. proposing solutions to customers in order to meet their expectations. Saturne Technology's main priority remains the service it provides to its customers.
