Race of the technologies
Metal Additive Manufacturing is often associated with Laser or Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion process. However, there are more than 18 different technology principles identified today. While some of these principles are in an early development stage, many are successfully used in industrial set-ups or it is expected that they will find a viable niche as manufacturing technology.
To be successful in using metal Additive Manufacturing, it is highly important to choose the right established or new manufacturing technology. Therefore, the 6th volume of AMPOWER Insights provides an overview on upcoming technology principles and assesses their potential.
