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.
