A Disruptive Technology that Drives the Manufacturing Industry to Transform its Design and Production

Additive Manufacturing (AM) has undergone significant technological growth in recent years, reaching a state where major industries such as manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, and healthcare are adopting it for mass 3D printing of low-volume components.

Industry participants are competing to develop highly scalable and advanced 3D printers that can print multi-materials. However, technology developers must collaborate with leading manufacturing industry players to build these printers and high-performance materials according to the specific industry output and production requirements to gain the benefits of AM technology for mass production.

This research report provides an in-depth analysis of the advantages of adopting additives for the mass production of metal components and other objects. The report also covers the common metals used for the 3D printing of components.
