Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a process of adding material for the manufacture of objects using 3D data, normally layer by layer, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing technologies. Additive manufacturing technologies are constantly changing and are processes that can provide integrated solutions for a number of challenges that companies face, in particular increased market demand for customised products and a reduction in time-to-market. Reducing time-to-market, the time needed to design, approve, build and deliver a product, means companies have a more competitive response time.
