Additive Manufacturing Systems

The process of joining materials to make parts from 3D model data, usually layer upon layer, using digital manufacturing technologies that include powder bed fusion, binder jetting (3D printing), material jetting, sheet lamination, material extrusion, directed energy deposition, and VAT polymerization.

Post-Processing: The Achilles Heel of Additive Manufacturing

Surface finishing and other post-processing requirements for AM production applications can run up to 60 percent of the total cost per finished part. Here’s how more capable and connected systems can simplify the overall process chain, provide economically viable parts and improve operational sustainability, cost, and timeliness.

Reimagined Parts: Additive Manufacturing Takes Center Stage (Part One)

Additive manufacturing is moving beyond prototypes, part repair and producing non-critical parts, and entering the direct production of critical parts and lot sizes. To deliver these jobs quicker, digital networks are integrating AM with product design software, CAD/CAM, ERP and automation to develop new approaches that can build innovative products faster than ever.
