Additive Manufacturing Training Bootcamp

Additive manufacturing (AM) is the most recent and the most revolutionary technology in the production industry.

Additive manufacturing is an unconventional method of manufacturing because in this manufacturing method, material is added one layer upon another layer to get the required shape and size of object.

Most complex objects can be built very easily by this technology. Additive manufacturing has the capability to reduce the supply chain by reducing a number of processing stages of a product.

Additive manufacturing has applications spread from Aerospace industry to Toy industry and from Biomedical industry to Construction field. Additive manufacturing leads to “Social manufacturing” which involves customers in all stages of product manufacturing.

Additive manufacturing is yet another modality of the digital era.

Additive manufacturing is a technological advancement made possible by the transition from analog to digital processes.

In recent years, communications, imaging, architecture and engineering have all undergone their own digital revolutions. Now, additive manufacturing brings digital flexibility and efficiency to manufacturing operations.

Essentially, additive manufacturing uses data computer-aided-design (CAD) software or 3D object scanners to direct hardware to deposit material, layer upon layer, in precise geometric shapes.

The growing list of benefits from implementing additive manufacturing is impressive, such as organizations save on material waste and energy. The core definition of 3D printing is methodically adding material until a part is created.

It starts with laying down a base layer of material then adding subsequent layers until the part is complete. You may also need to file off burrs or supports that hold up the part during printing, but the overall waste is minimal.

Consolidating parts for manufacturing can also save energy and material costs.

Prototyping also costs much less using an additive manufacturing approach. That’s because the cost of a CNC milling setup is considerable, and its subtractive process piles up material costs. The expense of an additive manufacturing prototype is comparatively cheaper.
