A Big Automotive Opportunity for AM
In this 3D Metal Printing exclusive, HP’s Ramon Pastor, global head and general manager of 3D metals, explains that the automotive industry “is in the midst of a massive transformation to a new generation of electric and autonomous vehicles, with some of the most innovative business leaders on the planet playing a substantial role in this transformation. And, many of them have come to recognize how valuable additive and digital manufacturing can be in enabling their new visions.

“At the same time,” Pastor continues, “new technologies allow OEMs to meet the demands of a consumer market increasingly seeking personalization and sustainability. As these trends continue to accelerate in 2022, I expect to see 3D printing gain a larger foothold in the auto industry.”

Read here more of Pastor’s thoughts, including the role that additive manufacturing (AM) will play in the EV evolution.

Vacuum Heat Treating 3D Metal Printed Components
Since 3D printing builds to near net or finished dimensions, vacuum heat treating is an absolute necessity. Vacuum levels that approach 1 X 10-6 Torr produce clean and oxide free surface conditions that are metallurgically stable. Critical temperature control is also a must to avoid cracking and producing a strong and ductile part.

Key Trends Power Expected Growth in Metal AM Through 2032
After the short-term loss caused by COVID-19 (impacting most notably the aviation market), the metal- AM market has recovered and is expected to hit $18.5 billion by 2032, according to a new report from IDTechEx. The report, Metal Additive Manufacturing 2022-2032: Technology and Market Outlook, reveals that while global supply-chain disruptions have led companies to re-evaluate their operations, metal AM has rebounded and moves forward with an 18.8-percent compounded annual growth rate through 2032.

Among key trends powering this growth: lower-cost printers, and an expanding material portfolio.
