The benefits of additive manufacturing are hard to ignore. So, why hasnt it achieved wider adoption? There are a few important hurdles that AM needs to clear for the aerospace industry at large to get on board.
New product design app to offer live collaborative 3D CAD editing, not just viewing
Many companies believe and perpetuate the myth that AM is only a prototyping tool, innovators in a range of markets (e.g., aerospace, healthcare, consumer goods and more) are already using AM for production-grade manufacturing when design, performance and cost factors align
Additive manufacturing enables not just personalisation but also, importantly, cost reduction and gains in success. There are sure to emerge many more potential applications.
Researchers at NYU Tandon and NYU Abu Dhabi are the First to Convert Flat QR Codes into Complex Features Hidden within 3D-Printed Parts to Foil Counterfeiters and IP Pirates.
Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is generally considered to be for prototyping but there is an increasing trend towards using it for production. So when does it make sense to switch to or consider using 3D printing for production of your products or parts within them?
The key to making AM productive enough for wider adoption across these high-volume industries, however, lies in process economics - choosing the most effective manufacturing process for each part.
