Additive Manufacturing (AM) – or industrial 3D printing – is gaining momentum as it graduates to serial production. Laser beam melting has emerged as a promising technology with first-movers already gaining considerable competitive advantage. More and more companies are keen to benefit from its economic and technological potential. However, many struggle to introduce additive manufacturing in the most efficient way. This white paper provides a best-practice approach to unlock the potential of AM and highlights on how to set up and run your production efficiently. This white paper is for you, if you- Intend to introduce additive manufacturing - and in particular laser beam melting - in your company- Are interested in key learnings for the successful set-up of your production facility- Are looking for a best-practices in your daily operations.
