What’s the right model for bringing additive manufacturing into production? Is it better to diversify into AM production from conventional manufacturing, or to start with a blank slate?

The August issue of Additive Manufacturing magazine considers these questions, featuring companies that are taking various approaches:

  • Tangible Solutions, a medical implant contractor, shares the challenges of building an additive manufacturing business from the ground up.  
  • Germany-based FIT AG describes a global, scalable production concept for its AM factory template.
  • DustRam, the developer of an accessory for dust-free flooring demolition, became a manufacturer through a combination of outsourced conventional manufacturing and in-house 3D printing.
