Metal AM has not yet gained significant market share in high-volume manufacturing because of the current limitation to the speed of the process, which strongly affects the production price per piece that can be achieved. The speed at which parts can be built is limited to how fast material can be melted and solidified into the underlying part.  

But high speed without high resolution is not a powerful equation. With existing metal AM processes, the two are often at odds. Decoupling them means production scale with precision. 

This presentation will include the following:

  • How to achieve faster build rates by evolving from a serial printing process to a parallel process
  • Why increasing build speed with high resolution unlocks new applications for AM
  • New frontier opportunities
