That’s the conclusion of Vyomesh Joshi, CEO and president of 3D Systems, in an exclusive 3D Metal Printing editorial offering a look at pathways for successful adoption of additive manufacturing (AM).
“Digital factories augment, rather than replace, traditional manufacturing,” he writes. “We see this in digital part designs that create strong value propositions, reducing the overall time-to-market with the right material combinations and 3D printers. Establishment of digital workflows enables manufacturers to create more shapes in more ways, for applications such as medical devices and complex aerospace structures.”
AMUG Conference provides a unique additive manufacturing (AM) training
and education experience. Designed to facilitate information exchange
