“Metal Additive Manufacturing, also known as metal 3D printing, offers unrivalled design freedom with the ability to manufacture parts from a wide range of materials. This is a prototype of an optimised bracket for an Airbus A380, with conventional bracket behind (Courtesy EADS)
Components that would not have even been possible just a few years ago can now be made to high standards using a wide range of metal powders. No longer solely a prototyping technology, Additive Manufacturing is now being used for the production of series components for the most demanding applications.
Additive Manufacturing, also referred to as 3D Printing, is a technology that produces three-dimensional parts layer by layer from a material, be it polymer or metal based. The method relies on a digital data file being transmitted to a machine that then builds the component.”
