DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "The Production Manager's Complete Guide to: 3D Printing with Metals" report to their offering.
Metal additive manufacturing (AM) is revolutionizing the manufacture of many products in aerospace, medical and dental, and jewelry to name a few.
Over the next decade, the implementation of metal additive manufacturing (AM) will complete the transition from a purely R&D activity to a full distributed manufacturing process. Understanding the advantages and challenges that this will present, and knowing the companies, and materials that will make it possible is imperative for any process and production manager that wants to take full advantage of this evolution.
This Guide is an accessible entry point for production managers into the world of metal additive manufacturing and is focused specifically on the requirements and practical aspects of implementing metals printing including providing direction on equipment choice, process integration and materials selection.
Questions on Metal AM Answered:
- Which are the technologies that you should implement?
- Which materials should you use to obtain optimal price/speed/quality ratios?
- Should you use metal 3D printing just for functional prototyping or for short-run production?
- What are the characteristics that make a particular product fit to be 3D printed in metal?
- Which prototypes, tools and parts can already be 3D printed?
Key Topics Covered:
Chapter One: Introduction and Overview
Chapter Two: Uses and Abuses of Metal 3D Printing: Parts and Prototypes
Chapter Three: Types of Metals that Can Be 3D Printed
Chapter Four: Additive Manufacturing Processes Suitable for Metal Printing: Pros and Cons
