As each year passes, the push for greater sustainability across all industries becomes more and more important. At this point, it is a necessity more than a trend. In the AM industry, it is heartening to see that most companies and groups are embracing ecological strategies, while simultaneously positioning additive manufacturing as an inherently more sustainable manufacturing process.
In this eBook, we dive into the ways that AM is creating ecological opportunities across various segments, like energy, consumer products and automotive. But we also cover the environmental impact of AM, which, while more sustainable than subtractive manufacturing processes, still consumes energy and materials and generates waste.
Keep reading for a thorough analysis of AM’s sustainable applications, an insightful look at aluminum manufacturer Rusal’s renewably processed metal powders, an eye-opening interview with 1000 Kelvin about the role of CAD-to-print software in improving sustainability and, finally, an illustrative account of how AM and ZVerse-enabled MRO services go hand in hand.
