Housing Coriolis Flowmeter

During the conventional production of flowmeter housing, Bronkhorst BV encountered many processing steps and long assembly times. By using 3D metal printing to manufacture the housing, we reduced the number of finishing steps and shortened assembly times.

  • Printing technique: LPBF
  • Material: Stainless steel 316L (1.4404)
  • Size: ± 120 x 60 x 100 mm
  • Post-processing: Shine

The reasons to switch to 3D metal printing:

  • A lot of waste / material consumption
  • Long lead time
  • A lot of manual work
  • Lots of assembly
  • Heavy product
  • Large stocks
  • Advantages of 3D metal printing:
    • -95% number of parts
    • -20% weight
    • -70% lead time
    • -10% cheaper
