Path to production

Metal additive manufacturing continues to gain momentum with many organizations starting to look at shifting to a full-scale commercial production.

Download our playbook "Planning a successful transition to serial additive production", where we share some lessons learned on our own additive journey to help others as they take steps to shift to industrialization.

The path to serial additive production requires careful planning, patience, awareness of potential pitfalls, and enormous attention to detail – but, if done correctly, can also have enormous benefits, such as shorter production lead times, cost savings, consolidated part counts, reduced waste, improved sustainability and an enhanced supply chain. 

In this production playbook, we will share some lessons learned on our own additive journey to help others as they take steps to shift to industrialization. Barriers that we will dive into are: 

• Part identification 
• Returning investment profit 
• An experience gap 
• A talent or resource shortage 
• Cultural resistance to change 

If not tackled correctly, these barriers and their key variables - machines, process, powder and parts - might derail your additive strategy.
