The transformation of additive manufacturing

whitepaper

While 3D printing may seem like a novelty to some, it is now becoming an essential part of manufacturing and has profound implications for process economics and supply chains worldwide. 

In the industrial world, 3D printing is known as additive manufacturing (AM) and has the ability to diminish the traditional reliance on specific tooling, allowing for products to be designed and printed anywhere in the world. HP and other companies were also able to use AM to produce protective equipment to hospitals at the beginning of the pandemic. 

This whitepaper looks at what manufacturing methods AM is best suited to and how AM can drive innovation in industries such as automotive and aerospace. Download it now for more information on the future of AM and the main challenges it will face going forward.
