Plan to attend The IMTS 2018 Conferences to gain deeper insights into new manufacturing technologies and ideas!
About the topic
What kind of game-changing advancements could be developed if we could make printing with metals as simple as printing with plastics has become – or, better yet, an in-office paper printer? Being able to more easily 3D print metals would move the industry ahead for engineers, and turn production and manufacturing on its head. It starts with a revolutionary concept where engineers can print their metal prototypes directly from their computers. Printing parts would cost less. Housing spare parts would change to satellite locations to produce spare parts as needed. On the other end of the spectrum, new innovations in metal 3D printing for mass production allow for the creation of parts up to 100 times faster than the speed of today’s laser-based metal 3D printing systems. The impact of this new technology will impact the global supply chain by saving time and costs that will trickle down to consumers. As we look ahead, metal 3D printing for prototyping and mass production will drive innovation and fuel the next step in additive manufacturing.
