Wolfmet 3D is the revolutionary additive manufacturing process provided by M&I Materials Ltd. It utilises a high powered laser to fuse successive layers of pure tungsten powder until a complex component is built. It is perfect for the manufacture of high-precision components such as collimators and radiation shields in imaging systems, such as CT, SPECT, MR and X-ray. Furthermore, using Wolfmet 3D allows components to be produced cost effectively in days rather than weeks.
We believe Wolfmet 3D is transforming what is possible in collimator and shielding design and our customers have been keen to test this proposition. In addition to standard grid collimators, we have been making complex bespoke designs that deliver better results for our customers.
Why choose Wolfmet 3D:
- Production of highly complex component designs
- Geometries not possible with traditional milling and turning
- Reduced scatter due to denser septa resulting in more accurate images than with traditional lead collimators
- Reduced development costs with no tooling charges
- Reduced time from design to production of finished item
- Non-magnetic, non-toxic, environmentally safe product
