The 3D metal print industry anticipates that solutions to obstacles faced by the metal additive manufacturing (AM) are ready to galvanize a ten-fold increase in AM-produced metal products by 2021.
Metal products produced by additive manufacturing had a value of about $210 million in 2016, a fraction of the $10-plus trillion global manufacturing market. By 2021, The researchers predict new SLM software, alongside consistent optimized powders, could drive this figure just more than $2 billion.
- Analysis of the development of product qualification, certification method, and protocol that will be essential to replicable product characteristics.
- Insight into why improved process control software is needed to ensure consistent production of parts.
- Details on gas atomization optimization of metal powders tailored for AM.
- Details on improved beam control and in-process data gathering for SLM approaches.
