Episode 22: Is 3D Metal Printing Ready for Deployment?


For metal additive manufacturing (AM) to succeed in supporting warfighter readiness, forward-deployed industrial metal 3D printers must be easily operated by enlisted personnel and achieve the same level of quality, geometric accuracy, and material properties in the field and at home base.

Until now, however, the process has not been so simple.

During this 3Din30, we talk with the Director of Additive Manufacturing for the Hartech Group, Gary Bredael, to uncover the innovative ways the Velo3D end-to-end manufacturing solution can help overcome the AM adoption and operational challenges facing the defense industry.
