James Bolland Engineering (JBE) specialises in the design and manufacture of bespoke tooling and fixture to service high-criticality parts for the aerospace industry. With over 30 years of history supplying the aerospace industry it perfectly complements Glenalmond Technologies’ Additive Manufacturing. By allowing our design engineers to build in any additional material required for post-machining to the original product designs, JBE saves both time and cost and leap-frogs the next barrier that most additive manufacturing companies have met, being able to machine 3D printed parts without wasting excessive material, one of the dominant attractions of 3D printing.
While most companies have been in such a rush to simply deliver 3D printed metal parts, Glenalmond has taken the entire process in-house and, with our focus on a centre for excellence approach, we offer a full turnkey solution to our customers.
JBE allows Glenalmond to offer this turnkey Additive Manufacturing service by plugging the gap that other suppliers face, in the actual designing for optimisation of 3D printed parts. This allows us to save even more material, time and costs in our process.
