Additive Manufacturing technology is revolutionizing the ways products are conceptualized, developed, and manufactured. The transportation and industrial machinery industry segments face many challenges that can be addressed by additive manufacturing and associated technologies.
The accelerating pace of innovation, pursuit of new market segments, input cost variability due to forex, increasingly complex supply chains and associated costs are among the largest challenges. These segments account for over 50% of current AM technology use, and nearly 50% of these applications are in manufacturing.
In this webinar, we will discuss the potential benefits of AM to the constituents of this industry segment, whether they seek to enter new markets, to increase market share, to increase product performance, or to decrease inventory, logistics, or manufacturing costs.
