Metal additive manufacturing continues to gain momentum and several organizations are starting to explore the technology for the first time.

The path to serial additive production requires careful planning, patience, awareness of potential pitfalls, and enormous attention to detail — but, if done correctly, it can lead to shorter production lead times, cost savings, consolidated part counts, reduced waste, improved sustainability and an enhanced supply chain.

In this webinar, we share lessons learned during our additive journey, and discuss how we help companies shift to industrialization.

Primary Topics:

  • Typical production challenges
  • Key factors influencing repeatability
  • Organizational challenges
  • How to overcome AM challenges
