Velo3D technology cuts lead-time of Upwing Energy’s gas compressor module

US-based natural gas service provider Upwing Energy has leveraged technology from metal 3D printer manufacturer Velo3D to 3D print its Subsurface Compressor System (SCS) compressor module.

By using Velo3D’s Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) 3D printer, Upwing has reduced the manufacturing time needed to support its SCS gas well deployment schedules. 

3D printing has enabled the company to go from engineering design, to full compressor rotor assembly production in just 10 weeks. Moreover, tests which simulated the environment of the gas compression process highlighted the high-quality and durability of the 3D printed parts.
