Metal 3D Printing: 10 Most Common Questions
Speakers: Dr. Ankit Saharan and Vincenzo Abbatiello

Is metal additive manufacturing (AM) ready for prime time?

Innovators in aerospace and medical were early adopters, but with recent advancements in industrial 3D printing technology, it is poised to change how companies design and produce metal parts across a variety of industry sectors.

AM offers several benefits over traditional manufacturing technologies. Because it relies on a digital workflow, it empowers engineers with new design freedom, helping them create parts that are lighter, stronger, and more functional than ever before. AM also enables customization and offers a speed-to-market advantage other solutions can’t match. Metal 3D printing helps companies extend those benefits to a wider range of parts, which can drastically improve the overall quality and performance of their products.

In this new webinar, we will address some of the top questions related to industrial metal 3D printing, including:

  • What are the various methods of 3D printing metals?

  • What materials are available and how do they perform?

  • When does it make sense to use metal 3D printing instead of other manufacturing methods?

  • What size parts can be printed and what kind of quality can be achieved?

  • Is it necessary to optimize a part’s design for AM?

  • How does metal 3D printing help with lightweighting?

  • What other tools and capabilities are essential to get from start to part?
