SLIDESHOW: Technology Showcase, Additive Manufacturing
Earlier this month IMTS presented a small pavilion dedicated entirely to additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, for making production parts. It represented just a sampling of some current AM technology. This slideshow shares some of those products and equipment.
New at IMTS earlier this month was a small pavilion dedicated entirely to additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, for making production parts. Although this is a new application for AM, it is growing especially within the aerospace and medical industries. In addition to that, AM is being used by manufacturers in all industries, including moldmaking, for producing jigs, fixtures, molds and other production tooling. That pavilion was just a sampling of some of that technology; here is some other current AM products and equipment.
