Post processing, in one form or another, is an inevitability when using additive manufacturing (AM) technologies, but is particularly critical for serial production applications of AM — both in terms of the financial costs and the time it takes between a part leaving the AM system and being fit for purpose as an end-use product. Joseph Crabtree, CEO, Additive Manufacturing Technologies Ltd Undoubtedly there are many benefits associated with the use of additive manufacturing (AM) as a production technology. On a pan-industrial basis, manufacturers exploit the fact that through the use of AM they can not only build complex parts, in one piece, which were previously impossible, but they can also build stronger, lighter weight parts, reduce material consumption, and benefit from assembly component consolidation across a range of applications. These advantages have all been well documented during the last 10-20 years as AM has emerged as a viable […]
