Despite the huge potential for Metal 3D printing in manufacturing industry, a survey found that only 29% of companies use additive manufacturing to make production parts.
Recent demand for medical components has highlighted 3D printing’s capabilities. However, to further encourage its development, understanding the potential of high performance metals, improving the quality of printed products, and finding more affordable alternatives to metal powders is crucial.
Methods such as molten metal deposition can be fast and economical, and a new system using water-based metal paste is boosting the speed, simplicity and affordability of metal 3D printing. When combined with a variety of metals from high grade titanium to scrap aluminium, quality is increased further and costs lowered more.
