By Mark Howard, EU Automation Additive manufacturing (AM) is drastically altering a range of industries, from manufacturing to the medical sector. But what are the limitations of the technology? This article shares some insights behind the manufacturing and legal issues surrounding additive manufacturing.
The primary responsibility of the SME AM Advisory Committee is to advise SME on initiatives, activities, policy, and strategy related to AM.
By Ben Smye, Matmatch It has been 35 years since the first instance of what we now think of as additive manufacturing (AM), or 3D printing. Lauded for its rapid production speed and minimal waste, the process is becoming a staple of product prototyping. However, there is still room to improve the sustainability of this process.
