This is an innovative approach to design, technical design and production, also known as 3D printing. Additive Manufacturing involves adding material to form a product. The first application of this is ‘Selective Laser Melting’ (SLM), in which thin layers of metal powder are placed on a construction platform. A laser then melts the cross-section of the intended product, and this process is repeated until the product is completely built up.
Additive Manufacturing (also known as 3D printing) has the potential to transform entire value chains. At TechniShow you will find numerous exhibitors that focus on Additive Manufacturing.
