DESIGN OPTIMIZATION AND EASIER ASSEMBLY FROM HP MULTI JET FUSION
Customer at a glance
Bowman International is a leading manufacturer and supplier of plain bearings in the United Kingdom and Europe. Established in 1974, Bowman offers an unparalleled range of bearings and sintered parts for applications across all industries.
Seals for split roller bearings were previously produced using aluminum, which can result in damage to the steel housings and made assembly and disassembly difficult to achieve. Operating in environments where parts must be regularly maintained and downtime is at a premium, the bearings require seals that can be assembled and reassembled easily and quickly.
Bowman initially used SLS to develop its new products, but this technology increased the likelihood for warping and inconsistency in the final part, so it was not suitable to produce reliable production parts. Faced with this challenge, Bowman sought new ways to design and manufacture their parts using HP Multi Jet Fusion technology with HP 3D HR PA 11, a more versatile material.
