Why work with us?

Understanding and proper use of new technology can be crucial to whether your business stays competitive. MIL helps you get started with new technology by offering:

  1. Neutrality
  2. Network
  3. Competence
  4. Technology and equipment
  5. Qualification of new technologies

We specialize in the use and understanding of the technology we have, and we have a good overview of how it is used for different applications around the world.
We are happy to contribute to your projects to find out how technology can solve problems and create value.

Courses and skills development

Do you want an intro or inspirational course in a new technology?
Or do you want to take it a step further?

We offer courses and skills development at several levels within:

Counseling

We know how the technology works and how it can be used. We
are happy to contribute to your project with the expertise and equipment we have.

Technology testing

We have bought a lot of exciting technology precisely so you don’t need to.
If you are wondering if the technology is for you, you can try it out with us, gain experience, before you later go to purchase exactly what you need for your company. This lowers the risk of mistaken purchases.

Production of components

With our broad portfolio of 3D printing technology and associated materials, we can assist with printing of, for example, prototypes and null series.

Use and understanding of new technology is necessary to stay competitive. But in which part of the process can new technology contribute?

We give you advice on how to start, what you should focus on, what kind of equipment is right for you, and much more.

Use of newly developed technology, or technology for a new application, can present risks in terms of quality, repeatability and HSE. In order to increase the confidence of customers in such technology, a technology qualification process can be carried out.

In order for the customer to have as much confidence as possible in the process, it is important that it is carried out by a neutral third party.

MIL uses the DNV-RP-A203 framework for such processes. This framework has been developed by, among others, DNV, the Petroleum Safety Authority and Equinor, and has a good reputation in the industry.

MIL assists in research and development work together with, among other things, universities, research institutions and calls for tenders together with industry.

Production of components

With our broad portfolio of 3D printing technology and associated materials, we can assist you in finding the right design and material for your prototypes and null series.

 

With our flagship within industrial 3D printing, we can add new metal to existing components. Applicable materials can be stainless steel, nickel-based alloys, utility steel, and more.

Industrial 3D printing / AM of metal has come a lot further than most people realize. With this technology, components are made that are as strong as cast components.

We can make your products in:

  • 316L - stainless steel
  • AlSi10Mg - aluminium
  • Nickel-based alloys
  • Tool steel
  • Copper
  • Specially developed alloys

Thermoplastics, thermosetting plastics and polymer-based composites. We have several printers within plastic printing which together provide a broad portfolio of possible materials for your product.

Some selected materials:

  • Carbon fiber reinforced nylon
  • PA / nylon
  • UV resistance ASA
  • Temperature-resistant thermosetting plastic
  • TPU
  • PC
  • ABS
  • PLA

Technology testing

We have bought a lot of exciting technology for you to test out.

The best way to learn about new technology is to test it yourself, preferably in relevant environments. In this way, you can later purchase new technology based on a much larger knowledge base.

You can borrow equipment from us. The equipment can be used in our laboratory, or taken to your premises. We will help you get started.

Are you a supplier of new technology and want to show off the technology?

In our laboratory in Grimstad, we have the necessary infrastructure in place. Get in touch with us.
