These are exciting times in the additive manufacturing (AM) sector. There is real momentum behind the drive towards the use of AM as an alternative to conventional manufacturing processes. However, with this drive comes a necessary focus on and scrutiny of the entire manufacturing process chain surrounding AM.

New manufacturing method, called Additive Technologies, is the method with possibility of 3D-models layer-by-layer manufacturing. One of the most widely used methods of additive manufacturing of metal products is Selective laser melting. For melting metal in powder form, an ytterbium fiber laser is used with power from 200 to 1000 W, the radiation of which is focused to the required location with help of high-speed drive mirrors.

3rd Munich Technology Conference to discuss additive manufacturing’s full industrialization

Additive manufacturing is transforming markets. Scalability, cost and production efficiency present challenges to the commercialization of this rapidly evolving technology. Its progression from visionary technology to mainstream commercialization will be the key topic of discussion at the 3rd annual Munich Technology Conference on Additive Manufacturing (MTC3) October 8-10, 2019, at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. Speakers will look at technical and regulatory challenges surrounding the technology today and assess the role of innovation in the future of this exciting field.

The global market for 3D printing in construction sector (including various technologies that use 3D printing as a core method to fabricate buildings or construction components) is poised for solid growth over the next six years with a compoud annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 16 per cent by 2025, according to a new report.
