WHAT IS ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING?
Additive Manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing or rapid prototyping, is defined as the process of joining materials to make objects from 3D model data, layer by layer.
WHY ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING?
When implemented properly, AM can significantly improve product development, reduce cost and material waste, and optimise inventory management.
ADVANTAGES OF AM AT A GLANCE
Innovation – Faster product development; complex designs for performance
AM gives you the agility to reiterate new designs quickly, rethink design performance and spot product flaws at an early stage so you can launch new products with swiftness and confidence.
Savings – Reduce cost and material wastage
Lightweight designs are increasingly gaining attention across different sectors. Reduced material usage lowers costs per part and lighter designs reduce energy consumption of their applications.
Optimisation – Production on Demand
Produce based on your needs without worrying about tooling, moulds or inventory. Customize your designs by simply changing the CAD data. Capture the high-mix low volume markets and manufacture parts based on market demands.
Depending on what your organisation’s key performance indexes are – such as product development and customization, reducing costs and material waste or inventory optimisation – AM has the solutions you are looking for.
Companies that have successfully integrated AM into their production processes and reached their targeted key performance indexes do so by choosing the correct products to be created using AM.
