Value the future,
upgrade the past
In an industrial environment, large production equipment is often tailor-made. When components break down this results in long lead times. Entire installations need to be completely replaced when components have become obsolete, moulds have been lost or suppliers have gone bankrupt. Guaranteed offers a solution to these problems by repairing and rebuilding large metal parts, using wire & arc additive manufacturing. Born from Innovation, we use unique and state of the art simulation, monitoring and inspection tools to guarantee first time right production; while being raised in Industry we guarantee one-stop-shop industrial reliability.
Repair and rebuild on demand
In an industrial environment, large production equipment is often tailor-made. It is, in addition, exposed to severe operational conditions requiring a high structural integrity and lifetime. This results in long lead times when components break down. Entire installations need to be completely replaced when components have become obsolete, moulds have been lost or suppliers have gone bankrupt. This either leads to huge financial losses due to unforeseen long production standstills or to high storage and logistic costs.
Guaranteed offers a solution to these problems. Our technology allows to repair and rebuild these large slow movers on demand, reducing the lead times and eliminating the storage costs. The reduction of the manufacturing cost provides an additional advantage as no dies, tools, mould or setup costs are required. Born from Innovation we use state of the art unique simulation, monitoring and inspection tools to guarantee first time right zero-defect production. Because we are raised in Industry, we guarantee one-stop-shop industrial reliability.
Our Value Drivers
Bringing you unique
We guarantee performance and first time right production through unique process and metallurgical simulation, monitoring and inspection tools.
Guaranteed’s industry leading dimensional capabilities exceed by far those of alternative technologies to respond to the needs of our target sectors.
We guarantee cost efficiency by the use of commercial welding wire, robust and proven hardware, our industrial footprint and ability to repair.
Obsolete part repair
Guaranteed’s unique ability to repair, allows huge cost savings due to part obsolescence and associated full system replacement.
The Guaranteed process allows to upgrade or enhance the performance of industrial components which were engineered long before.
Reduced logistic cost
In addition to the direct cost benefits achieved by repairing a damaged or obsolete component, additional benefits relate to e.g. stock-keeping or transportation.
Guaranteed’s near net shape production and repairability, responds to rising societal concerns with regard to availability of critical raw materials and energy.
Short lead time
Our high deposition rate near net shape process is compatible with conventional post-processing operations without posing additional safety hazards.
Guaranteed’s future-proof production tools are fully instrumented and automated.
Our target Sectors
Serving asset intensive
Installations exposed to severe operational conditions require high structural integrity and lifetime 24/7 throughout the entire year.
Punctuality of rail-services and extended operational lifetime demand for intensive repair or spare parts to fight obsolescence.
Near net shape part production allows for significant buy-to-fly & cost reduction.
Flexible production of tailor-made clamping tools allows fast leak prevention to realize significant savings.
Oil & gas
Replacement of forging which results in significant material waste, while the extended lead times and quality failures can stall further operations.
Ports & Maritime
The use of bespoke components and the global operational scope of the sector render stock management extremely challenging.
Huge costs associated to idling of equipment or penalties associated to delays require to keep large amounts of stock.
The growth of renewable energy puts additional stress on conventional power plants resulting in more frequent breakdowns.
THE IMPORTANCE OF CHOOSING A METAL ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING SERVICE PROVIDER
Once you have decided to go down the Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) route, the next step is at least equally important. While «value for money» is often the most analysed criterion, the truth is, working with a solutions provider must go beyond this important argument. Indeed, not only is the market filled with companies offering AM services, but also confusion can quickly arise when one realizes there is also a wide range of metal AM technologies. What criteria should you use to favour one technology over another? And most importantly, how should/do you envision the future of your production with that Metal AM solution?Read more
First article on the value proposal of Guaranteed appears in 3D Print Magazine
"The Belgian start-up Guaranteed has commissioned the first of two production lines on the ArcelorMittal site in Ghent. On these lines metal parts from heavy industry, offshore and shipping are repaired or produced with WAAM technology. Guaranteed's software automatically programs the robot and the welding systems, while a second software package can simulate the end result in advance."Read more
