How additive manufacturing positively affects 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, also known as 3D printing, enables completely new designs to be produced and supply chains to be significantly reduced. Although there are numerous standards and requirements, there are limited best practice guidelines. This means manufacturers, customers and suppliers in the sector must constantly adapt – which is costly and time-consuming.
