For those new to the world of additive manufacturing (AM), this innovative technology can offer a wide range of benefits comparative to traditional manufacturing methods such as injection molding. Those include lower upfront costs, agile part production, the ability to iterate rapidly on design changes, and lower non-recurring engineering expenses. Additionally, there are manufacturing scenarios, which are better suited for AM: Impossible-to-mold geometries (i.e., complex parts with channels, holes, and recesses), differentiated functional performance (i.e., tunable lattices, textures, foam), part consolidation (i.e., 3D printing a single part instead of multiple parts, simpler assembly lines), leaner supply chain (i.e., parts-on-demand, reduced supplier dependencies).

This session will discuss these scenarios in detail as well as provide examples of companies that are using AM to solve manufacturing problems such as long product development cycles and low-volume part production.
