LayerWise is the first production centre in Belgium that exclusively focuses on the Additive Manufacturing (AM) process for metal parts. The company was founded by Jonas Van Vaerenbergh and Peter Mercelis, both of whom were closely involved in the development of Selective Laser Melting (SLM) at the Catholic University of Leuven. LayerWise intensively collaborates with the Catholic University of Leuven, and systematically invests 30% of its resources in Research and Development to push the boundaries of the technology.
Typical Industrial markets include precision mechanics, process industry and aerospace/marine as well as medical and dental industry segments. Industrial applications cover complex circulation parts as well as tool inserts with conformal cooling. In addition to countless industrial applications, LayerWise manufactures revolutionary orthopedic, maxillofacial and dental implants. The core of LayerWise is producing functional prototypes and serial produced parts in any preferred metal alloy using less material and no scrap.
