Industrializing additive manufacturing
Individualized mass production, functional design, high energy and resource efficiency as well as shorter innovation cycles – the advantages of Additive Manufacturing are being leveraged more and more in the industrial environment. Whether powder bed fusion, directed energy deposition, material extrusion or jetting – all these techniques build up workpieces layer by layer based on digital 3D design data. These techniques allow extremely complex structures to be created, which are both light and stable – in fact, finally, parts can be cost-effectively created with batch sizes of just 1. And digitalization offers the best possibilities of covering the requirements associated with Additive Manufacturing.
