Lincoln Electric and SES combine additive manufacturing expertise

November 2, 2021 - Lincoln Electric, Cleveland, and Stress Engineering Services Inc., Houston, signed a memorandum of understanding to formalize their collaboration in large-format metal additive manufacturing. Lincoln Electric and SES bring complementary strengths to the world of metal additive manufacturing, and now these two leaders are combining efforts to help promote this high-growth sector and the applications within it.

Additive manufacturing is of increasing interest to the energy, power generation, and oil & gas industries as they realize the potential benefits of AM for large-scale metal part fabrication:  drastically shorter lead times, reduced costs, digital inventory, design flexibility and high quality, especially as compared to castings.

The close collaboration between Lincoln Electric and SES will help customers accelerate the adoption and qualification of AM parts. SES assists on the front end with design and analysis and the back end with validation testing, leveraging its industry-leading design and test capabilities for large components. Lincoln Electric is on the cutting edge of metal AM technology and with its vertical integration and installed capacity can deliver high-quality AM components fast.

“SES customers have pain points in sourcing and manufacturing their large metal components that Lincoln Electric Additive Solutions can alleviate,” says Michael Whitehead, SVP, president, global automation, Ccutting & additive businesses of Lincoln Electric. “By working with Stress Engineering Services, we anticipate driving additive adoption faster by helping customers realize the myriad benefits provided by large-scale metal additive manufacturing.”

Jack Miller, president, SES, said, “Our commitment to the adoption of large format Metal Additive Manufacturing Technology is unparalleled through validation testing and our other capabilities. This alliance strengthens our service portfolio and capabilities in new and important areas. We are very excited to work with Lincoln Electric Additive Solutions to create an outstanding commercial client-focused team that benefits all stakeholders and will ultimately affect client’s capital and operating costs positively.”
