eBook: Integrating Metal Additive Manufacturing: 5 More Questions
The technology for 3D printing with metals is poised to effect sweeping changes across the manufacturing sector. If you’re ready to take the plunge and integrate metal additive capabilities into your operation, there are a number of questions you need to ask before you begin.

If you’re considering investing in metal additive manufacturing, then you should be able to answer the following questions:
  1. Is your application suitable for metal AM?
  2. Are you going to outsource metal AM parts or make them in-house?
  3. Are you going to use powder bed fusion or directed energy deposition?
  4. Are you going to purchase a standalone printer or a hybrid CNC machine?
  5. What are your material limitations?

If you’re unsure about the answers to these questions, check out our feature on Integrating Metal Additive Manufacturing. If you already have your answers in-hand, congratulations! You’re halfway to being ready to start additively manufacturing metal parts.

This eBook covers the other half of the equation when it comes to integrating metal additive capabilities into an existing manufacturing operation. More specifically, it’s designed to help you answer the following questions:
  1. What ancillary equipment do you need?
  2. What training/certifications will your operators and engineers need?
  3. What are your post-processing requirements?
  4. How will you qualify your metal AM parts?
  5. What are your safety risks?
