Additive manufacturing facilitates the fast and flexible manufacture of components
Additive manufacturing – sometimes referred to as AM, surfacing, 3D printing, and freeform manufacturing – is a method of many names. Additive manufacturing makes it possible to quickly and cost-effectively produce components whose properties (dimensions, geometry, weight, etc.) make them difficult or sometimes impossible to manufacture using other methods.
Lasers in industry improve product quality and production efficiency
How can selective hardening using lasers make products last longer? And how can production in the engineering industry be sped up by replacing traditional processing and manufacturing methods with laser methods? In this article, we explain how different laser processes can improve the quality of your products and make your production processes more efficient.
