Our customers can benefit from additive manufacturing in many ways. Examples include:
Reduced lead times
With AM, no tooling is required and setup times are short. This means the lead times from design to finished product are much shorter compared to conventional processes. A very important benefit for low-volume parts.
AM allows the merging of multiple single parts into one larger part for manufacturing as one “single print”, thereby reducing costs (e.g. assembly costs). This also eliminates tooling costs to increase savings.
Realization of complex shapes
AM enables great freedom of design: It is now possible to realize complex shapes and structures (e.g. bionic shapes) that were not previously possible with conventional processes.
High level of customization
With AM it is possible to realize individual designs and requirements more quickly and easily than ever before.
