AM part cost often lack transparency
Additive Manufacturing is rapidly evolving, and its implications are far-reaching across industries. In this AMPOWER Insights, we look into internal costing and the dynamic pricing landscape, investigating today´s manufacturing cost as well as market pricing by part manufacturing suppliers.
Our analysis focuses on manufacturing cost for AM parts and benchmarking in-house costs against service provider pricing. Key technologies in polymers and metals, including Material Extrusion, Selective Laser Sintering, Multi Jet Fusion, and Laser Powder Bed Fusion, are analysed. The spectrum of materials analyzed in this study spans PA12, APS, TPU, aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium alloys, each with its unique cost dynamics.
