Additive Manufacturing – Metals & Plastics

Your Complex Challenges. Our Infinite Possibilities.


At CCAT, we apply innovation in our world-class Advanced Manufacturing Center (AMC) using additive manufacturing with metals and  3D printing with plastics to help solve your complex and varied challenges.

Produce prototypes

  • Create your ultra-high resolution parts with nearly infinite degrees of transparency, shading, and flexibility using plastic resins — ABS-like, polycarbonate and elastomer.
  • Develop solutions with metals including steels (mild, tool, and stainless); alloys of aluminum, nickel, titanium, cobalt, and copper; and refractory metals.

Repair components

  • Add materials to your existing part for unique repairs or modifications.
  • Enhance your materials with fully dense metals using laser powder directed energy deposition.
  • Research and test your repair process.

Build new parts

  • Fabricate your parts with integrated features and properties rapidly.
  • Blend materials seamlessly during the build cycle.
  • Print pre-production parts.

Technology that delivers

  • Add/subtract material with DMG Mori LASERTEC 65 3D5 hybrid manufacturing 5-axis machine
  • Controlled atmosphere builds with Optomec 850R LENS system using multiple hopper powder metal feeds (35x59x35 inch environment)
  • ProJet 5500X with multi-jet 3D printing for plastics (750X750X890 DPI resolution)
