Additive manufacturing, the building of materials layer-by-layer and with very high precision, is currently turning the dream of multi-material, complex components into a reality. This technology provides designers the chance of building a part as one unit, from several materials, from the inside out.
This potential improves the accuracy of the product’s manufacturing and fabrication in addition to reducing material wastes. The real benefit of 3D printing is not speed. Though speed can be an advantageous factor, the key benefit of this technology is it’s efficiency.
3D printing can easily and effectively overcome the limitations imposed by the traditional production techniques. Already it is benefiting a number of companies on a huge range of sectors like automotive, space engineering, biotech, civil, military, jewelry, medical and many others.
The other benefits of Additive Manufacturing are given below.
- Efficient use of Resources
- Small Lot Production
- Quick Manufacturing
- No tools
- Agile Manufacturing
- Light-weight Structures
