White paper: Expanding Industrial Applications of Additive Manufacturing with Advanced Material Solutions
- Why additive manufacturing is revolutionary for industries?
- What are the highest performing materials for additive manufacturing in industrial application?
- How to democratize additive manufacturing?
The high-performance materials for 3D printing are evolving in tandem with advancement of additive-manufacturing technology. The material research and development in additive manufacturing is rooted in the understanding of the past practices and bridging the gap between traditional and emerging technologies.
A better use of material properties
The promises of 3D printing over traditional manufacturing techniques are well known: faster development cycle, freedom of design and personalization, lighter parts, less waste and less assembly, decentralized manufacturing… In other words, 3D printing helps manufacturers use less, longer and smarter.
How to use less material and get lighter parts through a combination of modeling and material innovation.
How to use material longer through better resistance to impact, by introducing nanostructuration technology to engineer a new generation of photocurable resins.
How to combine continuous fiber technology and filament fabrication to further push the frontiers of lightweighting.
