Transitioning from Development to Production: Addressing the Next Steps in Metal Additive Manufacturing

SteveSteve Fisher, District Solutions Manager, Industrial Metrology, Additive Products West Coast USA, Renishaw spoke at the Open Tech Forum at Space Tech Expo 2018 on metal additive manufacturing.

In his presentation Steve introduced Metal Additive Manufacturing as a great process to develop test parts for product development., but as these parts are used in full production, there are some important considerations to achieve efficient manufacturing.

Steve described the following:

  • Advances in metal additive machines to handle higher production rates
  • Advanced techniques used to post-process metal AM parts
  • Practical applications
