Overcoming Challenges to Scaling Metal AM Production: An Engineer’s Guide


Global industries with complex logistics systems and parts supply chains need agile manufacturing solutions that adapt to their needs. While traditional manufacturing can introduce significant lead times, and conventional additive manufacturing (AM) systems struggle to produce parts at scale and with consistent material properties, Velo3D’s fully integrated metal AM solution has emerged to help overcome these manufacturing challenges by printing parts at scale and with unprecedented quality and repeatability.
