Additive manufacturing may be transforming industries such as aerospace, automotive, healthcare and tooling; but a major challenge persists - how can companies produce additive powders of a robust and repeatable quality?
Efficient serial production – true additive manufacturing – is the real game changer. Four case studies demonstrate how scaling up to serial 3D printing production represents a huge opportunity for manufacturers.
The predominant understanding manufacturers have regarding 3D printers is that they are basically a prototyping tool. This pre-conception in some cases may hold back wider adoption and the chance to leverage the transformative capabilities the technology offers.
