Introduction to Additive Manufacturing


Introduction to Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing (AM), commonly referred to as 3D Printing, refers to a production process in which components are created a layer by layer on the basis of digital 3D design data.

In the next 5 years, additive manufacturing is expected to increase in production speed by 400 percent, and decline in cost by at least 50 percent.

Using additive manufacturing reduces repair times and avoids costly warehousing.
