Additive manufacturing has become popular in the aerospace and medical sectors, but the automotive industry is also seeing more and more uses, particularly when it comes to selective laser melting (SLM). Metal AM is increasingly finding its niche in low-volume, complex components that benefit from lightweighting, optimized designs and internal cooling channels.

Dr. Richard Grylls, technical director, North America, at SLM Solutions, presents real-world examples of successful additive manufacturing in the automotive sector at the Additive Manufacturing Conference taking place September 11 and 12, 2018, in Chicago. His case studies highlight the potential of additive manufacturing to reduce development time and part counts while increasing performance and time-to-market for automotive applications. The presentation will be Tuesday, September 11, at 3:15 p.m.
