How is additive manufacturing changing your manufacturing processes and supply chains?

The additive manufacturing sector is growing fast, especially in the field of serial production where stakeholders have high expectations of the technology’s use.  Additive manufacturing enables completely new designs to be produced and supply chains to be significantly reduced. However, there are numerous standards and requirements yet limited best practice guidelines. This means manufacturers, customers and suppliers in the sector must constantly adapt – which is costly and time-consuming.
