Shop System is said to achieve exceptional surface finish parts with rich feature detail at speeds up to 10 times faster than those of legacy 3D powder bed fusion technologies.
Speed Is Relative in AM: A Data-Driven Comparison of Multi-Laser Powder Bed Fusion and Binder Jet Processing
There is a difference between the effective print speed and the actual cost to produce the component with AM. John Barnes compares binder jet processing with powder bed fusion for metal parts.
A medical device maker establishes a center of excellence for product and process development in which additive manufacturing and CNC machining both challenge and complement one another.

As 3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing ramps up for production — including a fleet of new 3D printers in a custom-designed building — it's the company's traditional machining capabilities that provide a unique competitive advantage.
Sustainable manufacturing can increase operational efficiency while responding to environmental requirements, but must consider the entire production chain including postprocessing. For binder jetting, this means selecting a sustainable debinding method.

Compact Directed Energy Deposition (DED) machines include automation for batch processing.
Knust Godwin introduced metal AM into its precision-machining environment nearly eight years ago. Now the company is using the capability to break through into new applications and give 3D printed mission-critical parts a renewed business case.
