Additive Manufacturing

High quality 3D printing manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing enables fast, precise and high quality production of customised components. Our extensive range of printers for industry- and material-specific applications offers maximum flexibility. This allows us to produce 3D printed components to your exact specifications. Our Additive Manufacturing facility is designed and specialised to produce 3D printed parts for the medical, aerospace and railway industries. As a result, the production area is ideally suited to the high demands of these industries. Our production, qualified for medical technology and aerospace, enables the manufacturing of customised parts and small series according to the highest safety and quality standards. With over 50 years of experience in the field of high performance plastics, we provide you with comprehensive and individual advice from the selection of materials to the finished 3D printed component.

Your benefits with Ensinger Additive Manufacturing

Custom consulting & implementation

Our technical experts will support your project from the selection of the right material to the finished product. Product safety, quality and efficient project management are our top priorities. Our service covers all stages of the additive manufacturing process, from concept and design using advanced CAD software to complete post-processing and finishing.

Certified production processes

While many industries are already using the advantageous opportunities of Additive Manufacturing, industry-specific applications come with their own set of requirements and mandates. We are focused on providing materials and 3D printed components for medical, aerospace and railway applications. In accordance with industry requirements, our materials and printers are tested and approved.
  • Our production processes and machines for medical technology are qualified according to ISO 13485 and the materials and filaments used have been tested for biocompatibility according to ISO 10993-1, -4, -5, -18.
  • Ensinger's 3D-printed parts meet FAR 25.853 requirements for aerospace use.
  • For the railway industry, we offer additively manufactured parts made of filaments in accordance with the relevant material standards and EN 45545-2.

Outstanding properties

Isotropic strength - Designed for complex applications with no loss or compromise to the mechanical properties

We combine a high level of materials expertise in high-performance plastics, in-depth manufacturing know-how and state-of-the-art machinery under one roof. This enables us to create an isotropic strength distribution in the component for certain materials (e.g. PEEK & PPSU). This enables highly complex applications without compromising mechanical properties or construction and design. In addition, our materials such as PEEK & PPSU can produce mechanical strength equivalent to injection molded parts.

Surface treatment - For aesthetically pleasing components of the highest quality

High surface finishes are not only visually appealing. Components used in medical or aerospace applications are subject to the highest quality standards and therefore require optimum surface quality. We offer a range of mechanical and chemical finishes to eliminate the possibility of residues from repeated cleaning or sterilisation.

Pressure-tight - For components that are free of porosity and air pockets 

With in-depth knowledge and many years of experience, we can also additively process high-performance plastics into absolutely air- and pressure-tight prototypes or final components, without creating porosity or air pockets in the component. This enables bespoke production of parts as small as batch size 1, with quality on a par with other manufacturing techniques.


Additive manufacturing process at Ensinger
From concept and design with modern CAD software to complete post-processing and finishing: In the Ensinger One-Stop Shop for Additive Manufacturing, we cover the entire value chain in-house. In combination with Ensinger's expertise in the field of high-temperature plastics, this enables us to offer you the highest quality, optimum process flows and solutions tailored precisely to your needs.

With our own compounding and filament extrusion facilities, we can also produce customised materials to meet your exact requirements.
We offer:

  • Maximum flexibility from material selection to finished part
  • Short production, process and delivery times from in-house material production to additive manufacturing and finishing of finished 3D printed parts
  • Comprehensive advice and cross-departmental support - so even complex projects can be handled quickly and easily

How additive manufacturing can change your industry
