Scaling Up Metals Additive Manufacturing — new paper

By Rebecca Gurk on Tuesday, March 7th, 2017 in Additive Manufacturing, Advanced Manufacturing, Aerospace, EWI – Company, Metal 3D Printing, Space Exploration, Technology Innovation. No Comments

Additive manufacturing (AM) processes empower manufacturers to build parts that were previously impossible to create using traditional subtractive machining methods. While laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) is well-developed and offers high levels of accuracy, it is better-suited to small components. As an alternative, laser directed energy deposition (L-DED) combines a laser and a material feedRead more
