Metal additive manufacturing has been around for decades now. What was once just an interest in scientific research centers and universities is now being found in use globally at state of the art manufacturing facilities.
It is used across many industries, from medical and auto to aerospace and energy. And it continues to grow. As it advances in sophistication and to a more robust and stable processing means, it is rapidly moving from just something of interest by early adopters to full-blown qualification and use in the most demanding of industrial settings.
Metal additive manufacturing is increasingly being considered as a replacement, enhancement, or alternative means to traditional metal part production and repair, especially in applications where parts are vital, costly, and maximizing uptime is a top priority. It can provide huge cost savings and offer dramatic reductions in lead times. Some examples […]
