Metal additive manufacturing (AM) utilizing the established powder bed fusion (PBF) process opens up a wealth of opportunities for many industrial high value applications where complex geometries and low/medium volumes are high on the priority list. The advantages of implementing metal AM for such applications include significant cost and time efficiencies, as well as application-specific benefits including light-weighting, reduced material consumption, the ability to consolidate assemblies with intricate geometries that can improve part/component functionality.
Metal AM is not a replacement technology for all conventional metal manufacturing applications, but it offers a growing and potentially huge opportunity for manufacturers with new and existing complex metal applications. Alloyed Digital Manufacture is an ideal partner for developing applications and pilot production with metal AM.
