Additive manufacturing: 3D printing to perfection

The biggest advantage of additive manufacturing is that the process offers a high degree of flexibility in creating the form. Components with complex structures, which are otherwise difficult to produce, can be manufactured quickly and easily using 3D printing technologies while delivering the desired quality. For instance, if you wanted to make a miniature Eiffel Tower, it would be difficult to recreate the many gaps by using a mill (i.e. subtractive manufacturing). In the additive manufacturing process, a 3D scan of the Eiffel Tower is created, edited in the computer and then “printed” layer for layer. And what does the future look like? We see great future potential for serial production and new customer offers, for example for personalised vehicle parts. Customers should be able to have vehicle parts manufactured according to their individual wishes. In which areas do ...
