Unlocking the Potential of Metal AM: Strategies for Scaling Production with Velo3D
Metal additive manufacturing (3D printing) is quickly becoming a vital technology used in the aerospace, energy, and tooling industries to manufacture complex parts more efficiently than they could using traditional manufacturing methods. But while conventional metal AM excels at producing one-off and low volume, many of the same conventional systems lack the repeatability required to bring parts production to scale.
Moderated by 3Dprint.com’s Joris Peels, Velo3D’s Director of Technical Business Development, Matt Karesh and Technical Sales Engineer, Sid Raje, discuss the roadblocks to successfully scale metal AM and share how the Velo3D fully integrated metal AM solution overcomes those challenges by mitigating variation in the printed process through standardization—allowing engineers to produce parts at scale and with consistent material and geometric properties.
- The importance of standardized printing parameters
- How a universal set of print instructions enables printing consistency across a global network of printers
- The role of fleet-level calibration in combating print variability
- How a scalable metal AM solution can impact parts manufacturing, material qualification, and AM acceptance
