A world of new possibilities
Romar is uniquely positioned to offer additive manufacturing for the commercial and industrial sectors.
In partnership with Australia’s premier scientific research organisation, CSIRO, we are the first company in the southern hemisphere to own a DMG Mori Lasertec 65 3D 5-axis synchronous laser deposition, welding and milling machine.
The Lasertec 65 is an elite 3D printer with enhanced capability.
It combines the flexibility of high capacity additive manufacturing with precise, 5-axis milling. What that means for our clients is exceptional flexibility to create innovative new parts – and repair, replace or renew existing ones.
Bigger, faster, more complex and precise
Romar is one of only two commercial companies globally using this additive – and subtractive – machine.
With advanced metal on metal capability, the Lasertec 65 can create metal composites – for optimum design and manufacturing flexibility. The Lasertec 65 is capable of extremely rapid build, up to 10 times faster than a powder bed-based system.
Coupled with its milling capabilities, this opens up new possibilities to manufacture larger parts faster and in greater volume.
The system can produce complex 3D geometries up to 500mm. And it can repair or coat complex parts like turbine casings and blades, guide vanes, impellers, propellers, blisks, multi-material components, tubes and moulds with internal features.
Additionally, parts require no treatment or modification prior to use. Fast and flexible production lessens storage and maintenance requirements, minimises downstream disruption and maximises cost-effectiveness.
In house expertise
Our engineers are recognised globally for their expertise – and excel at innovative solutions to precise and complex manufacturing challenges.
Romar engineers have received advanced training in creating previously impossible components in a 3D environment using materials such as stainless steel, nickel-based alloys
(Inconel 625, 718), tungsten carbide matrix materials, bronze and brass alloys, chrome-cobalt-molybdenum alloys, stellite and weldable tool steel.
A perfect partnership
Romar’s partnership with CSIRO provides it with access to industry-leading additive manufacturing expertise and equipment through its ‘Lab 22’ facilities in Lindfield (Sydney) and Clayton (Melbourne).
Lab 22’s production techniques cover e-beam, laser, blown-powder, cold spray and sand printing, plus an array of characterisation techniques.
It can also process refractory metals, Ti/Ti alloys, cobalt chrome, nickel alloys, steel/steel alloys, aluminium, silica sand and composites.
On top of this, CSIRO offers world-class research in materials science, polymer chemistry, physics and engineering.
Access our world-class facilities
Our DMG Mori Lasertec 65 provides opportunities and production processes that were previously impossible.
So we can provide exceptional industrial manufacturing for sectors including aerospace, mining, medical and defence.
Romar’s wide range of precision manufacturing and testing equipment is certified to meet international standards, while CSIRO provides a deep, multi-disciplinary capability across many scientific fields.
Together, we have a network of business partners that spans the planet and a wide array of industries.
“Collaboration between business and research is integral to Australia’s manufacturing future. CSIRO’s partnership with Romar Engineering is driving innovative solutions in advanced manufacturing, generating jobs, skills and growth opportunities.” – Keith McLean, Director, CSIRO Manufacturing.
