3dpbm Production and LFAM AM Focus 2022 eBook

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

In this publication, our fifth AM Focus eBook of 2022, we are looking at the state of production AM—that is to say, scalable, high-volume production—and large-format additive manufacturing (LFAM). Why the dual focus? It’s simple. Production and LFAM are both characterized by their large potential. Production AM is targeting large-volume manufacturing, while LFAM is, well, making large parts or large batches of smaller parts.

Production has long been the goal of additive manufacturing. And today, we are entering the era of production AM. Enthusiasm is at an all time high and real progress is being made, with companies producing millions of 3D printed parts every year. The AM industry is also actively striving to facilitate scalable additive manufacturing and even greater mass production and mass customization through increased automation and seamless workflows. LFAM, for its part, is unlocking another side of production AM applications, specifically, large-scale end-use parts or tools that would be challenging to produce using conventional manufacturing processes. 

We explore many corners of the AM production landscape in this ebook, beginning with an analysis of the LFAM market today. Next, we hear from automation specialist AM-Flow about how a fully automated post-printing workflow is bringing down the cost-per-part for AM and unlocking greater scalability. An exclusive interview with Seurat sheds light on the company’s upcoming metal 3D printing process, Area Printing, which promises game-changing print speeds and production volumes. We also had the pleasure to speak to Markus Seibold about his latest venture MakerVerse and to Italian LFAM specialist Caracol, whose technology has evolved to meet the needs of production-grade applications. The ebook also features an insightful conversation with Airtech about its Dahltram resins for LFAM systems. Finally, we take you through our recent experience at JEC World 2022, where composite LFAM solutions were a main attraction.
