Fact sheet | Additive manufacturing

As a manufacturing technology, additive manufacturing of metallic materials is a powerful technique capable of producing geometries not possible with conventional subtractive manufacturing technologies.

It also enables the creation of new materials through rapid solidification rates and complex thermal histories. Unlocking this potential requires new modelling tools and regulations that can adapt to meet the flexibility offered by additive manufacturing.
